    Default POLL: Who would buy purple?

    My wife wants a matching -Purple- rod and reel... since Allen FF seems to be the most customer oriented with request I spoke and messaged with Justin about this quite a few times.

    I'm wondering how many would purchase something like this for their wife, gf etc... or how many ladies would purchase this on their own?

    This is also my ammo to Justin

    I ordered two different reels from Abel that were supposed to be violet / indigo ( dark ) purple or at least in the purplish spectrum….what I received was a colorblind guys idea of purple, more lilac to pinkish rose than purple.

    I have an affinity for the old Loomis IM6 burgundy rods and I own three Echo2’s that are a deep wine color. So I’d be a potential buyer, if we’re speaking of a dark translucent purple, but only if it were on a product I want. Color alone would not sway me to buy a product.

    Got that right Looks and colors of equipment aren't really a big deal in the overall scheme of things... My wife wants purple though. Its her favorite color and everything is purple to her. She gets her nails done every 2 weeks and it is always purple in some way, shape or form. All that said, she'd rather wear $5 dollar purple earrings from wal mart as apposed to fancy diamond crapola. With that, I can't complain because aside from her fav color she's Very low maintenance

    Funny you should ask that! I just bought the ATS rod (burnt red) for my wife as a gift... And Justin was telling me of the possibility of a purple reel wich I hope I can match to the ATS rod before the next season.
