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.

This is my first "upscale" reel that I've purchased, and I haven't been disappointed in the slightest. My next reel will be another Allen!

Silky smooth drag. The emerald finish is top notch. I was able to pack on 300yds of 30lb gel spin backing and line easily. Love the deep v spool! Right now I've loaned it to my father for his trip to Mongolia so we'll see how it handles taimen. I can not wait to give it a thorough surf beatdown on big jacks and smaller tarpon! Very impressed! Will update after the reel has been put through the paces.

Well, I was skeptical to be honest.
Now, I own 2 Krakens and 4 spools. This reel is absolutely incredible. Drag is water tight. Fished in the salt for 10 days and rinsed off every other day at best. Never had a failure and the drag is still running smooth and can stop a Mack Truck. The drag range is great as well.
These reels have caught everything from redfish to carp to musky to smallies. They are simply awesome.
Bottom line, this reel is lightweight, smooth, saltwater tough, and extremely well made. Buy it, you will not regret it.

I used this reel on a recent trip to the Bahamas and caught bonefish, ladyfish and large barracudas on it. Smooth silent drag slows big fish down well.
One caution is to make sure the spool knob is tight. My reel had been inspected by an interested fisherman and neither of us tightened it properly. Spun off on the first strip. When tightened properly it is solid and safe.

Purchased the Kraken Series 3 to match up with my 9 wt saltwater rod. The reel is a dream and comparable to reels that cost 2 - 3 times as much. The construction is top shelf and the reel has performed flawlessly in tough saltwater conditions. The sealed drag is butter smooth and is a breeze to maintain. I would recommend this reel to anglers of any level or experience. Keep up the good work Allen!
