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!!

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

    Excellent Reel

    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.

    amazing reel, amazing look

    Published 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!

    Great Performance, Great Looks, Great Price!

    Published by David F Merical on 18th May 2017

    I bought the Size 2 Kraken in the Dorado color. It has performed flawlessly, even on 20+ lb Grass Carp. It's a great-looking reel, feels very sturdy and smooth. This is a great reel that doesn't break the bank! I ordered another!
