  1. Great value rod

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Dec 2014

    I recently received my 8wt Compass rod. Very impressed with the 'fit and finish' for the price. The rod's action felt a bit 'stiff' at first, but gains feel as one gets more line out. I found it a pleasure to cast, and look forward to catching some fish of a size that might be a challenge!


  2. Another good purchase from Allen

    Posted by Red on 4th Nov 2014

    I grew up saltwater fishing and transitioned into saltwater fly recently. With the season ending I decided to look into a freshwater setup to pair with a reel and line that I got for next to nothing (after using old gift-cards and online rewards).

    When looking at rods I came back to Allen after having awesome dealings with them on reels (kraken). The Compass one of the better priced quality rods out there that you will find ... trust me I looked. I went with the 5wt and so couldn't be happier.

    While I've only lawn cast (with 6wt SA line), it was great and the limiting factor was the size of my yard, bushes and low tree branches. Can't wait to get this on the water and a fish, rather than a bush-trout on the end of the line and wouldn't expect my rating to go anywhere but up.


  3. Compass 9ft 6wt

    Posted by Bill on 16th Sep 2014

    I bought this 6wt rod in anticipation of fighting some larger trout and bass on the Rio Grande in New Mexico. I paired it up with the Trout II reel. I must say I like this setup better than my TFO or my Hobbs Creek.

    The action is wonderful and it is lightweight. I was fishing for 2 days straight and never even felt soreness in my arms or back like I do with my other setups.

    I am an Allen customer for life.


  4. Compass 9ft 5wt

    Posted by Big Mike on 14th Jul 2014

    Great fast action rod that was a dream to cast distance or a short ten feet for those little pools. Probably the best sub 100 rod I ever bought and this is my forth, include a lifetime warranty and what you have is the craftsman adjustable wrench of fly fishing.

    Going to buy a Allen reel to complete the package and slap a sticker on the truck BOOSH. AFF makes a great product and has won a customer for life.


  5. 9' 5wt compass

    Posted by Christian Falzarano on 19th May 2014

    This rod blew me away! When purchasing I had expected this to be an entry rod that I could use to teach my students and wouldn't mind it getting a little banged up. But when it came I had to give it a test run, and to my surprise I couldn't put it down!! It effortlessly cast large weighted streamers and when the surface action heats up I was able to place a size 22 on a seam like I was casting a $1000 rod. Hooking up was a breeze as well, between landing 5 inch wild brookies and 5lb rainbows, I was able to fineness and enjoyably play the fish to my net.


  6. Great rod for the price

    Posted by Andy on 13th May 2014

    I recently purchased the 8 wt and paired it with the Alpha III reel. The pair worked nicely together. I had no problems casting some hefty streamers 40-50 feet in wind from a kayak this past weekend in the Chesapeake for stripers. Allen's customer service and quick shipping are much appreciated. I downgraded one star due to the alignment dots not lining up correctly and one dot was actually missing--so some minor quality control issues. However, that doesn't affect the quality of the rod and its casting. I would definitely buy again.


  7. My go-to

    Posted by Ben on 8th May 2014

    This rod is my workhorse. It's lightweight like Paris Hilton filled with helium, but strong, like Tony Soprano's pimp hand. I've used it for delicately placing a #28 dry with laser like precision in the backcountry, double hauling streamers for bass, and I've even opened my beer with it once.

    Affordable, excellent build quality and built by an American company that stands behind their products. If you don't have one of these already, get one.


  8. Amazing Rod

    Posted by japeth bright on 16th Apr 2014

    After looking for a new fly rod for several months I finally choose the Allen compass. I tested several Orvis, Sage, and Reddington but nothing felt right especially seeing some of the prices. I had a very tight budget but wanted good quality as well. I believe I finally found it. I've landed 5lb+ smallmouth with no problem. Paired this rod with the alpha reel and used their discount it came in under $225 with a lifetime warranty. The compass has great backbone and loads very nice.


  9. Wonderful Rod!

    Posted by Gregg on 10th Mar 2014

    Awesome rod for the price asked, or any price.

  10. First Impressions

    Posted by Godfrey on 2nd Mar 2014

    I recently got an 8 wt Compass and I must say that so far it rocks! The medium-fast action is very smooth and should prove to be very versatile. I plan on using this for pretty much everything: bass, steelhead, salmon, etc. My first real test of this rod will come this summer where I plan on using it for big pike in Norway and I have no doubt it will perform well.
