Got #'s 1 & 2. Both are bad to the bone tough and work flawlessly for the price. Beats out several of my other reels that are well over 2-3 times the price for toughness and reliability. Well worth looking into and getting if you are hard and rough on your gear and need a reel that you do not have to worry about "hurting" then send back to the manufacture only to be told that they can't fix it under their warranty agreement.
Great job you dudes at Allen for getting this reel out to us out here that fish over 200 days of the year in God forsaken locations that require bushwhacking etc to get to.

This is the last in the Allen lineup of reels that I have yet to review...and I own most of them. It's certainly not last because it is least...although the price is unbeatable. This is a fantastic reel, never mind the generous price tag. I have had numerous successful days on the Truckee River with this beauty and have yet to find anything to gripe about it. It's a great little reel and perfect for a beginner or veteran alike. I use the 5wt to nymph on the river with and it's lightweight nature is perfect for this. I love it...and you will love it too!

I purchased this reel after thoroughly researching reels in multiple price ranges. I have a hard time justifying buying an expensive reel for trout and bass. Most reels drag systems are overkill which causes the price to be too much for something as light wieght as a 5wt rod. So I decided to purchase this reel after reading some good reviews and am very impressed with the quality of this reel. I couldnt find any other that was fully machined or nearly as attractive. Its extremely light and the drag system is smooth with a great click sound to it when adjusted. I purchased this reel with a line included and the line is great as well. I highly recommend this reel and am happy to see Allen is offering highly competitive products for reasonable prices. This sport is starting to become more realistic with companies like Allen.

This reel looks nice, but it performs outstanding! I have a couple other reels in this price range and this one is by far the nicest. The drag is especially good. It is very smooth and quiet. On some other similarly-priced (or more) reels, the drag adjustment is very nonlinear, but on this one it is easy to dial in. With the specials they offer this is a no brainer.

I purchased both the 3/4wt and 5/6wt reels a month ago after hearing such great things about them. It's going to be a long wait until the spring thaw! I can't wait to use them!!

Bought for youth, I think it would preform well for anyone.

I found the reel to be a good product, well made, and worth the price.

Awesome reel. The drag has a great range and it's light as a feather. I paired this with the 9' 5wt compass, outstanding performance between the rod and reel!! I highly recommend these products and anything that Allen puts their name on.
