The Volant Rod Series is a worthy successor to our ever-popular XA series of rods. It channels the medium-fast action of the XA with some improvements 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. The goal for the series is presentation, power, and accuracy in perfect balance, so not only can you put the fly on target, but you can effectively fight the hooked fish too. Each model was designed to suit its ideal fisheries: the 4-weight is dialed in on small stream and stillwater, while the 12-weight is built with the power to handle whatever the saltwater flats and blue water brings up for you.

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.

    Great Rod!

    Published by Tyler on 15th Dec 2014

    This is a very attractive rod with excellent hardware. The recessed reel seat and titanium hardware are very nice touches. It looks like a much more expensive rod. The feel and feedback are very good as well. A terrific value.

    even missing a guide it still performed great

    Published by John Koss on 14th Nov 2014

    Volant 8 weight, 9'.
    Got set up to kayak fish and was going through some tight quarters in the mangroves so I decided to break it down to make it easier to maneuver the kayak. Well break it I did! I was trying to pull the 2nd and 3rd piece apart and my hand slipped and ran up the rod and right into the line guide and broke it right off!
    Even with that broken off the casting was still there. A little line slapping on the rod now and then but all in all it performed great. Now I just need to send it back to Allen to have them repair the rod for my next salty trip!

    Raging Red..............

    Published by Dave Cooper on 2nd Nov 2014

    Another SUPERB product from Allen Fly Fishing. Not all lot more to say except that being an owner of several High End Fly rods, which are certainly needed for the GT's and others down here. This rod stacks up against them and certainly beats them on price and finish. I can't believe how you do it. But keep on doing it.As I will certainly be in the queue, for another rod and reel, after Christmas when my bank account will be resuscitated, after buying all the grandkids presents.

    I ordered a Kraken Reel and a Volant rod for an upcoming musky trip.
    I asked if I could get if before I left ( 4 days )
    I received an email from Kyle saying " they would get it done- no problem"
    To my surprise and amazement I received the rod and reel the next day- a saturday no less- approx 24 hrs after I ordered it.
    All I can say is wow! I will be a customer for life w service like that!

    Also the rod is beautiful and casts like a dream.
    This is my 2nd Kraken reel - I will put it up against anything Orvis,Sage or Nautilus has.

    Great products, Great service!

    10' 7 wt Smallmouth Bass Slayer

    Published by David Hicks on 6th Oct 2014

    Bought this Volant rod paired with the Kraken reel specifically for smallmouth bass and pike. Mainly still water with sink tip line and Fat Streamers! Casts effortlessly and has great feel. Fit and finish is top notch and I love the color! Musky rod next on the list. Keep up the good work guys. Semper Fly

    Volant 10' 4wt Kraken #2 5 wt

    Published by T. W. Bryant on 22nd Sep 2014

    I just received this fly rod Saturday, was a bit concerned about putting a 5wt on a 4 wt rod but it is a perfect match. Smooth, fast, and very balanced. This is a rod you can carry with you on an all weekend fly and float trip and never get tired. I own 3 other fly rods besides this one including a St. Croix, Sage, and an Orvis. All three rods are quality rigs but this combination so far is absolutely gorgeous. I have been fly fishing for over 25 years and have fished many different rod and reel combos and I can say without doubt this is one of the best if not the best. I don’t say these things lightly about any fishing equipment.

    Great rod and service

    Published by Ron on 20th Sep 2014

    When I went to order I called the company for advice and received the best service in regards to choosing the right set up and value for my needs. Justin was super helpful, a wealth of information and worked with me to find the right fit. I cannot be more pleased with my Volant rod and Trout ll reel. Went out to test this baby and boy was it smooth. I will have this with me any time I go out. I would highly recommend contacting Justin and get started with a fantastic rod and reel for yourself.

    Beautiful rod!! Outstanding customer service!!

    Published by Aaron on 12th Sep 2014

    I spent about two weeks looking for a new 5 wt but with so many companies and rods it makes it hard to decide. After reading countless reviews and opinions in fly fishing forums I had nailed down the reel I wanted. The Allen trout II. I wasn't sure which rod I wanted yet but for some reason was always drawn back to Allens' web site. I considered the icon series but they no longer had a 5 wt. I thought about the heritage series but feared the action would be too slow for my taste. So I decided to email Allen fly fishing to see if they had any new rods coming out soon. Within minutes Justin emailed me back saying they were releasing the volant series in a few days. He sent me some pics and info about the rod and offered to ship me one before they publicly released them. This was at 10:30 pm!! That sealed the deal for me. Justin called me the next day to complete the transaction over the phone. The rod was at my door within a few days. Unbelievable business practice!! This is how successful businesses are made. Justin told me if He's awake He's working. This is what separates Allen fly fishing from other companies. So onto the rod and reel. The volant is a beautiful bright red with extremely nice hardware. The reel seat is absolutely gorgeous. It's 10X nicer than my 700$ Sage!! The reel is amazingly light and smooth.I haven't fished it yet so I'll make an addendum sometime next month. Between the price , quality and service I highly recommend Allen products. I will certainly be giving them as much as my business as possible. As well as recommending them to My fellow fly fishers.
