The Allen Olympic 12,6 6wt with powerflex shooting line and rio scandi short versitip is ready to head to water. I cant wait to start casting it. I thought this event was due a bit of fun editing.

Nice! Is that the 9/10 Alpha II? Certainly looks different than my Olympic 12' 5wt with the Trout reel on it, mainly with regard to backing space, haha! I may be flipping some spey casts at grayling tomorrow if I'm lucky...

thats the biggest alpha they sell. I wasnt sure how much room the line would take up, so Im sure Im a bit low on backing for some situations, but theres over 150 yard on it.. 43 ft tip with 100ft shooting line, wow..
