Allen Fly Fishing just unveiled a new line of rods called the ATS series, with sizes from a 2-weight up to a 6-weight.
Justin Geisel of Allen says, “As a brand becoming increasingly focused on maximum value for the angler; we went in to develop a rod that complemented our current lineup of high performance rods at a price point accessible to even the most budget-minded anglers. The ATS has the look, feel, and finish of a premium rod. The mid-flex classic style trout taper is both forgiving to novice casters, and a refreshing change from the latest fast-action trends for those more experienced casters who prefer to let the rod do the load work for them.”
The ATS series is constructed of the same aerospace-grade graphite as their Xa, Myth, and Olympic series rods. The maple reel seat, A-grade cork, TiCr plated stripping guides, classic style snake guides, and dark red gloss finish on the blank round out the finish on this rod. Rods range in price from $159.99 to $179.99.
Allen is proud to be offering a special edition of this rod in select sizes to support Project Healing Waters. Project Healing Waters offers fishing, fly tying, and social gatherings for US war veterans, and is a program Allen strongly supports. For every special edition rod purchased, they will donate $25 to Project Healing Waters.
