Great line pickup. Drag is able to put the breaks on plenty of permit and bones. I will be purchasing more of these reels. Just like my other Allen reel, it's top self for sure. The Kraken is one of the best reels out there. Great quallity and price.

I have had the opportunity to fish and guide with the Kraken for several months now. The reel is flawless. Super light, super smooth, yet super powerful when it needs to be. FIVE STARS.

I have purchased reels before from some of the "bigger" name companies and I have to say, my Kraken model 3 blows them all away. When you hold it in your hands you can tell it is quality craftsman ship. The drag is super smooth and engages without jerking your line. Everyone who has seen or fished my new reel immediately falls in love. I will definitely be purchasing more. You can spend a lot more money to get a fancy name on your reel or buy a quality product from a company who backs up everything they sell

Te quality displayed in this reel is amazing. Very eye appealing and I am looking forward to using it on bone fish. The follow up and communications by Allen is top shelf. Highly recommend these folks to all.

I bought this reel (Model 2) to fish large streamers on a 6wt. The drag system is sound and smooth...adjustment is easy on the fly and line recovery is pretty quick. I am very satisfied with the reel. I fished it very heavy for 7 days, caught some very large fish, and never had an issue. Its also very light, which I appreciated after casting it all day for 7 days. I will buy another.

The kraken reel has been working great under heavy fishing in the Indian Ocean Territory for bonefish. Drag is awesome. Handles the salt water without issue, and is easy to clean after a long day of fishing. Would gladly purchase again!

I just used my new Kraken 4 on my 9 wt. rod to fish for tarpon, snook, and permit in the Mexico Yucatan. The reel handled 25# baby tarpon like it was a 12" trout. Smooth drag, reliable, and pretty too! What's not to love?

Bought this reel because I needed a workhorse. First fish I hooked with the Kracken was a 35inch Muskie. It preformed flawlessly! I loved it so much that I bought an extra spool and the "trout 2" with an extra spool. Allen's are my "goto" reels for all my setups now!

This is my 2nd Allen reel and I have been very happy with both reels. Allen's quality and finish are very good and the Kraken has a good solid drag. I also really like the deep v spool and how light the reel is for its size. The Kraken is great value for the price.
