The Compass series began as a way to get people even more affordably into the Allen brand. Now, with this most recent release, the Compass brings solid performance and head-turning looks to a very affordable price point. The medium fast taper excels at distance and handles heavy loads exceptionally. The improved grip is now more durable, while the larger guides not only make stringing up the rod easier, but allow for loop-to-loop connections and backing knots to pass through more fluidly. As far as line pairings go, the Compass is ideally suited to lines like our Force Taper, as the short head on the line brings out the best in the rod. Let the Compass guide you to your next on-the-water successes!

    Compass fly rod

    Published by Anna MCCarthy on 1st Feb 2023

    As of now a piece of bamboo and a shoe lace is better than the compass series. This fly rod was purchased as a Christmas gift to my boyfriend and quite literally the first cast the tip of the rod broke for no apparent reason. So I thought no big deal, there is a warranty and when a company has a manufacturing issue they’ll be happy to repair the rod. Boy was I wrong, they maintain that the rod was damaged by user error when it was not. My boyfriend has over 20 years fly fishing experience and he’s never seen anything like this. I’m giving the rod 1 star as it was never even used. Cheap blanks, bad customer service. Very unfortunate

    Very Satisfied

    Published by JB Pipes on 7th Jan 2023

    I recently took advantage of the BOGO offering and purchased 6 & 8 weight rods in the Compass series. I am very pleased with the overall quality, fit and, finish as well as the aesthetics of these rods. The rods were promptly shipped and arrived yesterday. I was able to lawn cast them today. Both rods load nicely and allowed me to make very comfortable casts to distances I am accustomed to reaching. I would say the action is medium fast, especially with the 8-weight. Bottom line, I have no regrets in this purchase and feel I received much value for the money spent. I recommend these rods.

    Versatile and Built to Catch Fish

    Took advantage of the BOGO deal and picked up 2 of these in 8wt. A stiffer rod that punches through wind and can sling giant streamers to bass and pike with ease, but also can be rigged up to deliver small flies like nymphs to steelhead and trout. Love these rods!

    Monsoon Season

    Published by Griffyn on 5th Jun 2022

    I fished this rod on the rainiest day so far this spring, on high water, out of a boat, all different kinds of flies. Some handles get nasty when they’re that wet all day, I didn’t have one problem, also it functioned very well throwing Streamers , Dries, Stimulators, and I Nyphed off this rod, Double Nyph set up as well. Overall this rod is a great option without breaking the bank.
