Why would anyone buy or pre order a new to the market rod without seeing or casting one?

Take it for what it's worth, but there are a smattering of reviews out there on the rods.

Hello,

I admit the quality has gottin much better from the start. I'v also invested into a new heat treat and forging process on our new hooks that are coming soon.

The whole waiting on shipments are done. I took a huge leap starting in August with a new shipping location and a full time employee doing my shipments and taking care of other things aswell. Our Demand is finaly meeting our supply from a stock issue.

I like to update everyone in our newsletter on the progress of the new shipping location and other things aswell. I think its good to let everyone know what is going on. Since the release of the shipping and stock issues. I have seen a number of old customers come back becuase of the faster shipping times.

As some of you may know being a small business doing everything yourself is alot of work, but the hardest part is admitting its to much for one person. I have 2 people helping me now and things have started heading in the right direction.

Our warehouse is fully stocked now with Hooks, Fly Boxes, reels, and the rods will be here shortly. Both in the Xa and Myth (old Nano Ti) and with 3 more rods we are working on that will be stocked in December. We are getting to where we ship the same day or next pending on what time the order was placed.

Our products have been doing well, but I knew the service needed to be improved with the growth of the company.

JayL - I dont blame you for your post. I would feel the same way. Eventhough you may never order from me in the future. I take negitive posts personal so I can improve or atlease make things right.


Thank you,


Justin

been in pretty close contact with the guys at Allen....I am either going to pull the trigger on their Xa Rod and Alpha reel or buy a discontinued Scott A3 7' 3w.....that is where I am at right at the moment....

what I meant to say was buy the Allen Rod and Reel for the same price as the Scott A3 discontinued price on the TCO website....or just buy the Scott Rod and most likely put an Allen Alpha on it.

well....I cannot delete or edit my last post...so I shall post again

I ended up ordering the Allen gear. The guys over there have been super on top of my e-mails and questions. I guess it is worth to give it a shot. I can always return they said if I did not like the rod......that's that.....finally put on my big boy pants and made a decision!

So Gary, if you hypothetically HAD to choose between an ALLEN and a Scott A3 that cost the same money, what would yous choose? The A3's are going for under 200.

I know I would take the A3 by a company that is highly rated for their fly rods, and the A3 was a highly rated rod.

This. Seriously. For the same cost you passed on a highly rated American made rod.

frankly, i wouldn't have bought either of them. i would've patrolled forums for ridiculously low cost hardy lightweight rod then inexplicably bought a 5'9" cabela's cgr two weeks after it showed up in the mail.

because they are esoteric and/or elite. like me. or something.

also, stuck a $5 ocean city #35 on them. stupid reel seats won't take a pflueger 1492.
