    Product Description

    Fly rods should be described by the feelings they evoke. Fast action. Low swing weight. Crisp recovery. Tight tracking. Attractive finish. Yeah, the Icon's got all of those.  But it also has soul. It will put that silly grin on your face when you cast it. It's pure enjoyment wrapped in high modulus carbon, gripped with premium cork, and finished with the finest components. From close casts in tight quarters to long reaches for distant fish, freshwater to the salt, the Icon rises to the challenge. From high-sticking to swinging, mending to double-hauling, stripping in a small one or bent to the cork turning a monster, the Icon is a purpose-built precision tool. But that doesn't mean it can't be fun.

     Features:

    • Fast Action Aerospace-grade Carbon Blank
    • Blank Color: Deep Brown - Wrap Color: Dark Mahogany
    • Lemke Brushed Aluminum Up-locking Reel Seat (Maple Burl Insert on 3-6 wt.)
    • Polished Stainless Steel Stripping Guide with Halide Insert
    • Stainless Steel Snake-style Guides
    • Premium, Hand-turned Portuguese Cork Handle
    • Hand Crafted in the U.S.A. with the finest components sourced around the world.
    • Lifetime Warranty
    • 30-DAY ROD TEST DRIVE

    1. Excellent rod with the right line on it Rating

      Posted by Richard Russo on 8th Aug 2017

      Recently purchased this rod (6 wt.) along with an Omega2 reel. This combination casts like a dream with Scientific Anglers Amplitude line installed. This line loads the rod very well for nearly effortless casting.


    2. Casts better than I expected 9' 5wt Icon II Rating

      Posted by Unknown on 24th May 2017

      Fished a premier trout stream for three days in the wind in PA casting dry flies. Have to say it cut through the wind and dropped the #12 and #14 dries better than expected. Balanced the Allen Trout II reel perfectly. Was the perfect rod to use all day without any problems. This is the real deal. TruST Me!

    3. 5 stars all the way Rating

      As an FYI I have more rods that you can shake a stick at....LOL including premium Sage, Redington, Hardy and Echo. I am primarily a dry fly guy and bought t the ICON 2 in a 8 1/2 foot 4 weight. I am blown away and how well it casts in terms of both feel and accuracy. My overall all time favorite dry fly rod is a 9 foot hardy Zenith 4 wt.........which won tons of accolades when it was introduced......and the ICON reminds me exactly of all the charecteristics of that rod. I consider it medium fast and its a joy to cast and hard to put down.


    4. No Effort, shoots line through any wind Rating

      All I can say is WOW... I have many rods including Loomis NRX LP, Orvis Helios 2. and many others... This one throws my bugs better and straighter than either of those two rods... don't get me wrong, I will always have those other rods in my arsenal, but will reach for my Icon II first and foremost


    5. Incredible feel Rating

      Posted by Andrew Howerton on 14th Apr 2016

      Recently took this rod (4wt) on an excursion into the NC mountains for 10 days. It fished like a dream with incredible feel and great touch, putting the line right where I was sending it for the deep runs and getting under the ledges in small creeks. Hook sets were fast and this rod really starts to shine when its fighting a 20" rainbow. Incredible rod that fished better than I could have imagined. Handed it to a local guide for a moment one day and he was so enamored I didn't think he'd give it back. Paired with an Allen reel I was certainly the weak link in the equation. Hat's off to Allen - I'll be coming back for more come Redfish season.


    6. Ya gotta' cast it to understand Rating

      Posted by G.D.E. on 1st Feb 2016

      While I was trying to decide what rod to buy to go along with the Omega 3 reel I contacted A.J. several times asking for advice. Ultimately I selected the 9' 8 wt. Icon II. He was spot on when he said the Icon II is the sort of rod that, when you cast if for the first time, puts a grin on your face. He was right. Exceptionally nice rod that balances perfectly with the Omega 3 reel.

      As with all things Allen: high quality, well made, and exceptional customer service. Thanks to all of the Allen team: Justin, Evan, A.J., and Kyle. Keep up the good work guys.


    7. The rod we've been waiting for! Rating

      Posted by Capt. Jon Bull on 26th Oct 2015

      I had the pleasure of being set up across from the Allen booth at the Florida Sportsman Expo in September of this year. Getting to meet AJ and Justin and spend time with them was great. I got to cast the Icon II at the show and instantly fell in love with it. I cast the 7 and 8 wt rods and they were so light in the hand, it blew me away. I've cast many rods and put many different rods in the hands of clients. This is the rod I cannot wait to put in someone's hands in search of skinny water, winter time, Tampa Bay redfish. Pair a Kraken 3 with a 7 or 8 weight Icon II, and you have a premier redfish stalking outfit! Or better yet, a Kraken 2 with a saltwater 6 weight for those fish that belly crawl in 6" of water! Either way, congrats to all of us! The rod we've been waiting for is here!!

      I received the Icon II as a warranty replacement for my broken Icon. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the original Icon the II is a whole mother level in speed, sensitivity, feel and fit and finish. By far the best rod that Allen has produced. Do yourself a favor and add at least one of these to your quiver.
