ReviewsYou just can't hardly beat Allen's for quality and price. I've had this rod for about 6 months and it is now my "regular". Generally fish warmwater, got the 4wt and love it. Thanks.Toadfish
Smooth actionI was fishing a beloved, older european medium action graphite rod that met an unfortunate end. I acquired a replacement faster action rod, but wasn't feeling the love. A friendly stranger on a local small creek suggested Allen. I bought the 4 wt. Compass with modest expectations. This rod fishes like a much higher priced rod. I am more than satisfied. It helps that I caught a small brown on my first cast. Your results may vary, but the Compass has a very smooth action that is right for me. I'm keeping an extra agreeable beverage in my coolerr in case I see that stranger again.Jimmy Ray
if there's a better 4 wt for the money, I'd be shockedSnagged a Compass 4 wt on sale and even at the price, I made sure to check reviews. I was surprised to see so many great reviews on a bargain bin rod so figured it was worth a shot. Paired with an Orvis Battenkill reel and Orvis WF4 line, I put it to the test on early spring browns and rainbows here in CT, and some wild brookies as well. OK it's not a Hydros2 (which I own and can compare) but this rod was wonderful, easy casting, lightweight and responsive. Cannot complain a bit. Plus I love the color.chris
fantasticSuper rod with a lovely action goes perfect with my alpha 3 reelMarc
Top-notch!I took this to Silver Creek, AZ on my first outing with this rod. It roll casted well, allowing me to precisely plop my woolly booger near the far bank. It also handled a two-fly rig with no hang-ups. And when I hooked into those trout over 20," it had the flexibility to allow the surges, yet it was firm enough to bring em in. Great rod for the price! I can't wait to try some catfish!
Rod feels just the way it is describedI purchased the 6wt rod as a lighter set up for inshore saltwater fishing. Works really great and casts with ease, even into the wind. Very impressed.Snooking Good
Completely took me by surpriseWell I have been a fan of a famous high end rod maker for many years. I say this in order to qualify my review. I recently purchased the Allen Compass 8wt mainly because two seemingly reasons; one I liked the color, and two the price is great. Within 3 to 4 days I received the rod. Put a high end reel on it and tried it out. At first glance, the rod feels light and had what I call a hollow feel to it if that even makes sense. But as soon as I started casting it came to life. I was really surprised and my expectations were exceeded. I was throwing nice tight loops and placing the fly right on target. Please note that I prefer what today is categorized as medium-fast rods, it's what suits my casting style. I normally fish South Florida for a wide variety of game fish. I still have to check the fighting capabilities of this rod against some serious acrobatic fish. I have a feeling that it will perform well. For the cost of this rod it delivers performance as such of others I have owned that cost five and six times as much. For a beginner this will be a rod that will help start a passion without breaking the bank. Good luck and tight loopshank
great all around rodI own the compass 8wt and love it, I can comfortably cast 10"+ streamers for pike and then in turn toss 1" leeches for steel head as well, this spring I will be retiring my phlueger 5wt and buying a compass 4wt to have a matching dry fly/Creek rod. 5 stars guys I'm quite impressed. I also run allens chest waders and do they ever withstand alot, 2.5 years and going not a single leak and fished almost everyday.ray
Great Rod.I purchased the 4wt. What a beautiful rod, extremely well made and superbly finished. On it's first outing my daughter used it and from the first moment you could tell she was far happier casting this than her previous rod. When I finally prised it from her fingers I could tell why, the feel in the rod is great, it gives a real indication of what is happening whether you are casting, retrieving or fighting a determined fish. She was first to christen the rod properly and she landed a superb 2lb+ blue trout. If my experience is anything to go by the only thing I can add is, if there is a chance you will loan this rod out when you buy it, you had best buy two, because you probably won't get it back!Jesse Darosa
unbeatable for the price.Bought this rod in a 6 wt, was able to cast far with minimal effort and the rod is super strong and unbelievably flexible. Handled big sea trout no problem in iceland. You can check out my video on instagram and see for yourself "iamdros". All fish were caught on this rod. You wont be dissapointed.
