Fred Carlson, United StatesAbout ALEKA A4 Rod Outfit/Combos
Hello Fishing Friends
I've been looking for a 5wt rod for awhile, checking all of the different manufactures and seeing what they had to offer. I was sold on a Orvis combo, until I saw what Aleka was offering, and what type of company they are. So I ordered the A-4 combo!! For those of you that are hesitant about purchasing an Aleka Product DON'T BE! I was very impressed with the quality and finish of the rod, as well as having real eyelets not snake guides. It's light and powerful and balanced and they offer a "machined reel" with a well sealed drag (what are you kidding me!!) I thought the drag might be jerky but no way, nice and smooth! It cast's fantastic. It's easy to peel out 60ft of line. My first trip out with this combo I caught 2 good size bow's and a small white fish. Handled all including some semi-tired chum. I thought the chumy's would give the drag a run for its money, but with a few click's of the drag i could bring them to a
stop. That was awesome!!
Love My A-4

I bought the A3 4wt 9' rod and upgraded to the A4 reel. The package arrived a day early and I couldn't wait to take a look. The rod is beautiful, very light and responsive and the reel is everything I expected. I haven't fished with it yet, but couldn't wait to get it out and check out how it casts - I was impressed. I showed it to a neighbor and he plans to order the same outfit! It was almost effortless. Whether it was a roll cast or shooting out a long one, the rod performed superbly. I can't wait to get it out on the water.

ANOTHER TEXAS STATE RECORD WON! ALEKA A4 FLY ROD, REEL AND LINE - November 1st 2012, Mitch Benway caught the Texas State record Hi-Fin Blue Catfish on his Aleka A4,9’ #6, reel and line outfit. The fish weighed 8.94 lbs. Not a bad catch on a 6 weight. The rod, reel and line performed great. This rod has more backbone than my other brand could ever produce. Thanks for selling me this great rod, reel and line. Mitch Benway, Texas05 December 2012

Ordered a 10ft 5wt travel rod. Received the package directly form the UK faster than I normally get stuff in the US. Tried it out on the lawn and was very pleased. Will give it the acid test this Spring on the water in Colorado.28 November 2012
Stephen Grasso, United StatesAbout ALEKA A3 Fly Rod Series
Used my new A3 two piece for the last three days in some no wind to very windy conditions and performed beautifully in all conditions. Certainly a lot of rod for the price. I should also mention fast delivery and excellent response time by phone and email regarding my purchase.23 November 2012

I purchased a 9 foot 6 weight for nymphing and the rod performed very well. It has enuff back bone to chuck meat if needed. For the price you can beat this rod. I am very interested in purchasing an A4 as well. My only complaint about this rod would be the finish. When the sun hits it a glare occurs.

I must say that I am impressed with Aleka Sports so far. John was very helpful in answering any questions I had in making the decision to buy the A4 combo outfit. The order showed up on my doorstep within 2 business days very well packaged and ready to go. The unfortunate part of this story is that 20 minutes into our first day on the river, our rod guides icing up at -5 deg C, the rod was placed in our truck and the tip was crushed in the door. On the up side we had a chance to try the breakage warranty and had a new rod tip in hand in 4 days. hopefully we will get a chance to put the kit through it's paces soon.05 November 2012

This is with out a doubt the smoothest rod and real action I have used to date. I have used it on The Davidson and North Fork of the French Broad rivers in North Carolina and it has performed like no other.30 October 2012

A4 reel one of the smoothest large arbor reels I've used. Great for large and small fish alike.26 October 2012

GREAT little fly box! Exactly what I wanted for the quick day on my home waters! I can usually wet a line on a wonderful piece of water on my way home and love that I can load up this little box with the flies specific to my water and no vest, no boat bag, no lanyard...as soon as I can string my line, I'm on the water! The detachable lanyard is an awesome idea!!!

I ordered a A3 rod reel combo on Saturday. Received a email on Sunday the reel was out of stock but I could upgrade to the A4. So after exchanging multiple emails with James that day, I chose to upgrade. He even threw in a extra dozen flies for free. Order shipped on Monday with expected delivery date of Friday. It showed up on Wednesday. Excellent customer service. I will be purchasing from them again soon.20 October 2012

Aleka Sports is new to me but may become my supplier of choice. They provided excellent service for my recent order. I hope the redfish in the bay at Panama City, FL perform as well when I use the 9 wt combo recently purchased. Now it is time fiddler to learn to tie a good crab imitation fly ( or purchase some from Aleka as they have a great looking one).

I only have good things to say about the A4 combo. The shipping was fast. The quality is great for the price I paid. The rod handled very well. Only used one day and may be my favorite rod I own. If anyone is looking for a good deal, this is it. 09 October 2012

Received my A3 outfit recently. It came in just 3 days. I have already hit our trout park 3 times. The rod and reel combo was great. The reel was way better than I was used to using.
Had a lot of fun with it.
