Thread: Welcome Home! Allen's first USA made fly reel

  1. Default Welcome Home! Allen's first USA made fly reel

    We are proud to announce the completion of our first USA made fly reel. Development is winding up, patents are pending, and production is just about to get under way!

    This beautiful, fully machined reel is being manufactured in my home state of Michigan. Being from a midwest manufacturing family, having products made close to home has always been a top priority of mine.

    We have done several tests on and off the water, and are now going straight to the biggest, baddest fish we could test it on. We just booked our company trip to catch Mako sharks near San Diego this September.

    After numerous design changes, prototypes, tests, and finally, a patent on the finished product, we're more than confident in this reel to not only handle any big game fish out there, but to satisfy even the anglers with the highest standards for their equipment.

    We will post photos, pricing details, and the official name in the coming days. Additional photos of the drag will follow after the patent is official.

    Thanks!
    Justin

    Looks like we were logged in on the wrong account! Just clearing that up here. Evan (the account posted) is the product development manager, but this post was written by Justin.

    Can't wait to see it, I've been wanting an excuse to get an Allen reel, may shuffle some gear around so I can afford/justify it.
