After the success of our popular XA series run of rods, we were ready to start fresh and use the same line of thinking to create an even more refined multi-purpose series. From small creeks to offshore saltwater, the Volant series will get the job done, and do it extremely well. The series is built around versatility and durability without sacrificing finesse and presentation. Throughout the lineup, we achieved a medium/fast action rod that achieves presentation, power, and accuracy in perfect balance. Each model was designed to suit its ideal fisheries, so that your 4wt is dialed in on small stream and stillwater, and your 12wt built with the power to handle whatever the blue water brings up for you.
|Length||Size (Line Wt.)||Sections||Weight (Oz.)||Fighting Butt||Cork Grip||Price|
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.

Hey it doesn't look the picture. Better. The red is more of dark cranberry red than the photo shows l plan to match it up with a Omega 5 series 11-15wt.
This setup will be for my big game when l go to Florida next year to visit my sister l can try it out on some bones fish and tarpon. l had just got the Azimuth rod redeeming my points. That rod l have used, no bites yet, but the 10'-7wt. is setup for spey casting with single hand rods. So can't wait to try out my new 12wt. rod. l will find some kind of fish to go hunt down with where l live. l hear there are bonita tuna to be had off the coast of Vancouver Island. Gotta go get a guide and try my luck !

Bought a couple of these rods for a trip I was taking to Montana. Fished several rivers and the rod was fantastic! Good action and will cast a mile (if that's your thing). I landed a nice 22" brownie on a sow bug, and the rod never failed. Put good tension and played the fish well on its runs. I paired it with a Trout II reel and it worked great. If I had to do it again I think I'd go with an 2x oversized reel, but that's a personal preference of mine I do on my rods for better weight distribution. Highly recommend this rod, especially if you're new and trying to results from proper casting fundamentals.

I was amazed at the price since I am a VIP member. Couldn't believe how fast the shipping was to Canada. I went and used my rod the first weekend and went to a stocked trout pond just to try it out. I caught about 18 nice rainbows in the 3 to 5 pound range. My 10 foot 4 weight handled like a charm. As with most new rods, I just have to try out a couple of different lines because the one that I had did cast okay, but being a 10 foot rod, I might have to go with a 5 weight line.

This rod has helped me tremendously with my cast. I can cast farther and more accurate and I honestly believe this is an attribute of this rod. Great rod at a great price. I will be using this one for a long time to come.

I purchased a 12wt Volant to compliment my blue and gunmetal (silver) Omega, and I have to tell you I was definitely impressed. A dream to cast. I definitely recommend all Allen products to my friends, and you should to.

Just used my new and 2nd Volant rod a 8'6" 4wt and I love it as much as my 9' 6wt. It loads and cast so nicely, and handled a big brown with ease. I have it paired with a trout II reel - what a combo. I am going to hand down my Winston to my daughter and use the Volant from now on.

I have casted them all. This rod in the 10wt is by far the best for my application. 425gr sink tips and 12" flies. This rod is a beast and has not problems handling those conditions.
The only thing I have a problem with is the hook bonnet. It is a bit small and I'm not a fan of the location because my hand rests against it. I will probably just file it off. Probably just me and should not be a deciding factor because the pros totally outweigh the cons.
For the price you really cannot beat it.
If you are looking for a stiff, fast action rod.......
Look no further.
I will soon have an 8 wt. for bass

The rod handles very well. I got a 5 wt for the Wyoming rivers

I was leery of color thinking it was fire engine red but it is a very classy coral. Have not fished it yet but it fits my casting stylle well. The 6wt loads nicely with a Rio Grande WF6. I will test it on the Missouri in 2 weeks after I return from fishing bone and permit in Mexico. Also, nicely finished rod for the price.
