    You can tell that Justin believes in great Customer Service in the way he treats his customers. Last year I ordered a pre- production rod & there was a problem with the completed ones when he received them. I was going away on my "bucket List" trip to Chile & he bent over backwards to get me a rod for the trip on loan & when I got back I sent it back to him. I don' know any other manufacturer that would handle such a situation on a personal basis like he did. Even though he was on his Honeymoon he still got me the fishing rod on time.

    I just recieved my red trout 5/7 and its so aweosome!! The finish is outstanding!! the pictures he has online really dont display how shiney and brilliant the finish is on those reels. I cant wait to try it out this spring.

    I also have an 1st generation Alpha 3/4. originally I had bought a trout maybe? but he was having some troubles getting them in and I was trying to get the reel before a trip, so he upgraded me to the Alpha for free and sent it my way. The reel is fantastic as weLL! Its smooth and quiet, same with the trout, and the finish is very bright. its almost too bright...almost. It is holding up well to being abused, I have knocked it pretty good on some rocks and it has some small dings on it, but nothing horrible or that effects the use. I will continue to order from them.

    Got home late last night from a weekend at the Somerset, PA Fly Fishing Show, spent a lot of time at the Allen booth with Justin, Evan, and Jason, mostly drooling over the new two-hander series and the Limited Edition colors on the Alpha II. The guys from Allen are some great guys and it was good to meet and spend time with them. It was also really cool seeing how much interest in the company there was from people at the show, even people from other companies. Evan and Jason both spent some time teaching me some two-handed casting and such, which I know I'm going to get very addicted to. Their new Olympic series is quite incredible, I didn't really want to put it down. They also had a mean little 3wt Xa that everybody seemed to love (same one that Marco got to cast), should be a small stream machine!

    As if I needed more inspiration to buy Allen products, getting to meet the guys in person and see how nice they are and how much they care about their products and their customers really shows the mark of a great company.

    Another huge Allen fan here! I bought a 5/6wt Alpha series from him last year. I think it was when he was going through his supply problems as well. I had ordered the reel along with an extra spool for my sink line, and since I had to wait a little longer, he threw in a whole other reel instead of just the spool! Again, showing what a great company and customer service that they have. I have pointed many friends his way, and will keep doing so. Keep up the great work!!1
