The Omega series of reels, currently including the original Omega large arbor and the Omega eXtra Large Arbor (XLA), represents the pinnacle of U.S.-made performance, attractiveness, and value. The Omega Modular Drag Platform (MDP) is the crown jewel of the entire Allen Fly Fishing range. Comprised of carbon discs and stainless steel washers, not only does it provide the highest top-end stopping power of any production fly reel on the market, this drag system pairs peerless drag power with exceptional smoothness across the full range of power application. And as if that wasn't enough, the MDP system can be easily removed from one Omega and placed in another, meaning that a single drag unit can be used with Omega and Omega XLA frames and spools from size 3 to size 5. The durable Type II anodization brings a splash of color and protection to the aerospace-grade aluminum body, and is available in everything from a classic raw aluminum finish to our iconic purple. Whether you need the monster-taming rapid line pick-up of the XLA-style spool or the widespread utility of the original large arbor frame, both are surprisingly lightweight and undeniably attractive. More importantly, our full line of Omega reels is protected by a bombproof lifetime warranty and our stellar customer service. Whether you are chasing trophy trout in the American West or enormous tarpon on the west coast of Africa, there is an Omega reel for the task. Designed and constructed in the heart of the American Midwest, the Omega reel series truly is the rebirth of American Muscle. Please allow a possible 7 day lead time for shipping.
