Here’s what we found for those who like big fish, big light reels and funky colours! The ideal Xmas gift, not too expensive (149$), made from annodized alumium, great drag, light weight, the new Allen Alpha III comes in two sizes, model 3 for lines #7 to #9 and model 4 for lines from #9 to #12. The extra spools are available at a reasonable price too. At Le Mouching it’s the perfect gift we hope to get for Xmas, wether it’s to use it with pikes or big trouts or to roam the flats!  [slideshow] As we were writing this post, Allen jusut put online a little video about their Kraken Reel, another great reel for lines  #5 to #12! [vimeo]
