    Sorry about that. I had plans to be there. However, I needed to take a week off for some medical issues. All is good now and we'll be in Michigan next week at the Mid-West Expo.

    Thanks

    For you guys that have ABAL boxes, how do they compare quality wise to a Wheatley? I am looking for a compartment box with foam on the other side and saw these, but can't comprehend the price difference...lol

    You wouldn't be sorry if ya got one. I can't say about Wheatleys,,dont have one of them,,but these are every bit as good as the Orvis aluminum boxes,,with the trout colors that sell for about 45 dollars. The Allen's are a classic black, and perfect to personalize with perhaps a decal or name plate,,if one chose to. Or, they look just dandy as they are ! These boxes are proof that quality does NOT have to cost an arm and a leg. I'm ordering another one.

    Also, I don't see replacement foam on their site...will Wheatley foam work as well? How close in shape/size are they?

    Thanks

    I wish they were not sold out of the ABAL4

    I bought 2 of the ABAL3's. We will see how they are when they come. I don't really like the rippled foam, but am hoping I can replace with Wheatley flat foam.

    I received the fly boxes today in the mail. Needless to say, at $13 a piece, I am very very impressed.

    I don't like the ridged foam, but I ordered some replacement flat Wheatley foam for both of them when I purchased. This has not arrived yet, but I will let you know if it fits.

    Great job.

    I ordered the Allen Guide Box myself a while ago. Great box for the money. Half the price of those terrible cliff boxes.

    I had a question about a line that I'd purchased. Sent it at about 6PM my time, which is 7PM theirs. Had a response within 15 minutes. Stellar.

    I just showed a friend of mine my ALAB3 and he was blown away by how nice it was for the money. He just ordered a Wheatly but has second thoughts.

    All my fly boxes and hooks come from Allen... No better deals on the internet... Now I'm in the market for a reel...

    Is Allen gonna be at the Great Waters Expo again this year?

    Yeah, they emailed me back at 1030pm once, 5 minutes after I emailed then. We continued the email chain until about 1130.
