    Kraken Reel Series

    Kraken Reel Series

    Product Description

    The Kraken reel series from Allen Fly Fishing is the best value for the money in the industry. The predecessor to this reel already boasted a lightweight, fully machined package with an impressively smooth yet powerful drag. The large arbor and “U”-shaped spool is ideal for fighting large fish and for dealing with any runs into the backing. Improvements to the drag housing have eased access for reversibility while maintaining a full gasket seal. Ranging from size II to V, the Kraken series is capable of everything from small-stream trout fishing to adult tarpon and giant trevally, and available in a suite of colors from classic to eye-catching. It’s no wonder this reel series has quickly become our best seller: for the performance it provides, it should be twice the price!!

      Posted by Unknown on 5th Nov 2017

      Recently purchase this reel for a king salmon trip in Milwaukee. Landed numerous 10-20 pound salmon and reel performed flawlessly. Even chased some smallies with same reel and easily transitioned to lighter bugs. Enjoying my reel thus far

    2. Can't Love the Kraken More than We Do! Rating

      We own three Krakens in various sizes for different fishing scenarios/sizes. In both freshwater and salt, the reels perform flawlessly. Both my husband and I get compliments on how well they're made whenever we're out fishing with others. We have colors Smoke, Dorado and black. All three are as sharp as can be on their rods.

      This reel is so damn sharp it would be a GREAT reel to do a special edition limited color....say fuchsia or autumn gold...just sayin'

      Thanks Allen for an amazing product and excellent customer service!

      Paired it up with my seven wt. Fish mostly light salt Tackle and it fishes fantastic I’m sure I’ll be buying more of these reels in different sizes.

    4. Beautiful Reel! Rating

      Posted by Mike on 25th Oct 2017

      The reason I bought this reel is weight. I compared the weight of the Kraken with all the best including Hatch and Nautilus. The Kraken had the least amount of weight at 6.5 ounces. I think it is important not have a reel hinge in your grip due to reel weight. As we all know a good cast starts with a good grip. I gave the Kraken a 4 only because the clicker is very quiet. Would rather have the Alpha sound which is differently pleasing. I'm not so sure about the backing capacity. I had to peel off a ton to get the AirFlo 8wt line to fit. Peeled down to where the spool begins to "V". What ever is left would be nice to know. Fit and finish is as good or better than the rest of the best. Although, not so sure about the new design spool support inherent to most sealed drag designs. It seems there is very little surface to support the spool. I'm curios to what will happen when heavy loads are applied. Can't wait to get it down to the Keys. That will be the true test.
      Thanks Guys. Keep up the good work!

    5. Love it Rating

      Love my reel! It's a 9 weight, and with 10 weight line it is like butter. Salmon and steelhead are no match!

    7. Excellent Reel Rating

      Put this reel on a 5 wt. Airflow Manic rod and I am very pleased. Smooth retrieving and excellent drag system. I may add the customer service is second to none.

      Purchased the wrong sized reel and decided to return when it arrived however, it was such a nicely built reel I kept. It replaced my primary 6wt reel and it performs flawlessly. An exceptional reel for the price. Thanks guys.

    9. amazing reel, amazing look Rating

      Posted by brandon on 4th Aug 2017

      Bought this reel and matched it to a custom made rod a friend of mine built. The quality and look are amazing out of the box. I went with the green color and absolutely love it. I was hoping the reel performed as well as it looked, after 2 weeks in Yellowstone I confirmed it did. I've caught many fish on the set up but have yet to hook into anything big enough to really utilize the drag, hopefully I can change that soon!

    10. No Mistake....It works flawless!!! Rating
