The Heritage Series is the result of 2 years of development to blend classic style trout rod action with modern refinements. The mid flex action has been fine tuned to suit the modern angler. Cast small dries and nymphs with delicate presentation, protect your selective trout tippets when the riser you were stalking turns out to be the pool boss, and discover its reserve power when more demanding casting situations arise. Presentation is king with the Heritage series, but the other aspects haven't taken the back seat. The flex and recovery are dialed in with perfect balance. The American tradition of trout fly fishing is alive and well with this series.

With all of our rods; if you receive the rod, and it's not for you, you can return the unused (plastic still on cork) for a full refund or exchange.
This is the weight of the complete, finished rod. Our weights may appear to be heavier than other manufacturers, but this is because we have chosen to give the weight of the rod as it arrives to you. This is not how many other brands classify their weights.

I had a TFO that was around the same price point as the Heritage, but I heard so much good about this rod that I had to try it out. Honestly, I wasn't expecting that much of a difference because my old rod was in the same price range. Wow, this Allen rod is so much better. My casting with dries is much more delicate, spooking less fish. Also throwing heavy streamers has been a treat. I had to slow down my cast, but once I got a better feel for the rod, I was able to get more distance.
Bottom line......way better than my TFO which was around the same price. I can cast dries further and more delicate, plus handles heavy streamers well.

I purchased this rod in 3wt and have been pleasantly surprised in its function for the price. Very smooth and predictable action, would not think twice about buying another!

This is my first 4 weight rod and I can't be any more pleased! Matches up beautifully with my Trout 2 Reel in Burnt Orange! Great products as always from Allen!!!

I have the 3wt and 5wt. I must say, Overall performance was amazing. I did have to adjust to the action on the 3wt. as it was a bit faster than I was used to. Top notch rod for mode range price!!!!

Was very pleased once I assembled it all with the small reel I also bought. Cast sweetly and as far as my 7 wt set up with less effort.
You do not actually feel its weight in your hands its so light.

I picked up the 4wt last month and couldn't be happier with it. It is now my favorite rod in my arsenal, and I couldn't be happier with the purchase. The fine folks at Allen have really nailed it with this one, and for an affordable price to boot!
Hooked into some beautiful Yakima River rainbows with it last week and it was the perfect rod for the job.
Keep it up guys!

Got a 3wt 7'6". I have a 5wt z-axis and my buddy has a Winston biix and we use this for a dry fly rod when switching off rowing. We both love casting this rod with small drys, even some bigger flies. It's buttery smooth and works perfect for smaller rivers and even better for creeks with tight casting.

I broke the tip section off a previous purchase which had been discontinued a few years back. The staff at Allen upgraded me to the same weight and length I had before at no extra cost to me. That spells Customer Service with a Capitol C!

I recently broke the tip of my 4 year old Trout series rod from Allen while fishing the Fryin Pan river in Colorado. I was heart broken as that rod had made me a better fisherman. I immediately got on line to find that the series was discontinued. I ordered the comparable rod in the Heritage series and had it in 4 days. Equally as happy.
Since the Trout Series was discontinued, Allen offered me a comparable replacement after I had bought the new Heritage 4 wt. I could not believe the offer so I got the 7' 6" 3 weight. Now I have 2 new fantastic rods from the the great folks at Allen.

I bought this 5wt as a spare for a trip to the San Juan last week. I fell in love with it and its proven itself over and over on many 14-22 inch fish over the the past 2 weeks. Its become my favorite Streamer and Nymphing rod. Highly recommend it!
