Default Allen Fly Rods

Any opinions - pro or con - on Allen Rods? Just got an email flier from them that all "in stock" 4wt rods are 40% off. Looking to pick up a 4wt rig for dry flies. Looking at their mid-range rods.

By the way, if you're looking at them the email doesn't tell you that the sale code is a code. It's on there but if you don't know what you're looking at you don't see it.

Please hurry and reply. The sale is only good through this weekend!!

Posted this in the tackle section but doesn't look like anyone is looking at that forum right now so I'll post it here till the Forum Police move me.

There are several post and writeups on different models but I did buy the Volant in a 7wt last year and Brownbass got the 5wt at about the same time. I couldn't be happier with mine, but since its a 7wt it's a completely different beast than the 4wt. Still relavant info, the company was very quick with shipping, the rod got to me unbroken. I really like the Allen cases. Allen has been a great sponsor on the forum and I love their hooks.
And if i were looking for a 4wt I wouldn't hesitate to buy one from them.

Yup I have one of their rods the 10' 4wt ICON and it's a sweet rod. There reels are awesome as well.

Allen is as good as it gets if you're looking at non "major manufacturer gear"


Plus great crew of guys and stellar service

I have the five weight Volant and I like it very much. I was considering the 8.5 but decided to get a sage Pulse because the were on sale for a little more. If you go for the Allen you will be pleased with it.

I am a huge fan of ALLEN, I order everything I can from them when I need it.
I just placed an order for a rod and expect it to be exceptional like everything else I have received from them.
