I have received my 2nd rod, and this was an A8 7wt model based on the advice of John from Customer Svc. He really took the time to answer my questions, and delivery was super fast. I have already had this rod out for a test drive and it was everything I was told it would be. It makes line delivery very easy and is light in the hand. In no way have I been disappointed by Aleka, and will probably be ordering something else soon.09 July 2014

Just brought this rod because I needed a four piece. Excellent feel and touch. Light but powerful. A great rod for the price.05 July 2014

I recently purchased a A8-410-4 fly rod and just finished a 5 day trip to knot Creek res in Nevada. It handled a 4# rainbow with no problem! This was my largest fish of the trip with most fish in the 16" to 20" range. It cast an indicator with no problem, and we were deep midging at 12'-0" so of the time. I am pleased with my new rod and would recommended it to any flyfisher. 01 July 2014

I recently purchase the A4 8'0" 4wt rod and have used it a couple times now. The first time last Saturday I went to the Fall River Hatchery in Oregon. I land about 8-9 rainbows and hooked 4 to 6 more. I have been told catching that many fish on the Fall River is remarkable. The rod performed beautifully. It gave lots of confidence. This is only my second full year fly fishing so I was very excited. Best fish catching experience so far. Thanks Aleka. I will be recommending your product to everyone.25 June 2014

Dear Saltwater Flyfishers,
I bought a 9 wt. rod from Aleka Sports for a fishing trip to Baja Mexico. I was not sure I would use a 9 wt. very much so I did not want to spend $900.00 for a high end unit. I had the idea that I would use it as a back up rod.
I bought an Aleka 9 wt. in the salt water series for 182.00 (tax and shipping included).
I fished around Bahia de los Muertos, south of La Paz, for two weeks. I used this rod and a 10 wt. Echo Ion.
Much to my surprise the Aleka is a beautiful casting, fish fighting rod. I ended up using it most of the time. Because there are no Sardinas in the Gulf there are very few BIG fish around.
The biggest fish I caught on the Aleka 9wt was an 18# Dorado. It preformed without a flaw.
I tied large flies for fishing the Sea of Cortez. They are 4-5" long, tied on Mustad 5/0 hooks. I could cast them without a problem on the Aleka rod.
I build my own sinking lines and for the 9 wt. Aleka I used a Rio 400 gr. taped sink tip tied to a Rio intermediate sinking running line, tied to Rio 80# hollow braided spectra.
I like the Redington Predator saltwater series. I think the Aleka is even better than the Redington Predator series of rods.
If you are looking for a great rod for under $200.00 I can recommend this product. I put it through the paces and it holds up.

I just purchased a A8 10 foot 4wt. I do alot of stillwater fishing out of a float tube and your A8 4wt is an excellent rod for this type of fishing. I was very pleased with the way it handled fighting fish and casting. Excellent rod for the price!

Unwrapped my new Aleka 6wt and was delighted with the look and feel. I do miss the alignment dots, but casting is fluid and the lightweight is a change from my Orvis Clearwater. Plan to use it soon in Utah and Wyoming.

I received my 7'6" 3wt. Last weekend. A beautiful rod that loads up perfect with a WF 4wt. line. Outstanding finesse action, It'a a bargain for the price.02 June 2014
John Trammell, United StatesAbout ALEKA A4 Fly Rod Series
Haven't had time to try my new 6-wt yet. It appears to be very well made and finished. The action seems very fast, so when I try it, I'm going to try it with both 6-wt and 7-wt lines.31 May 2014
Michael BookerAbout ALEKA A4 Fly Rod Series
While I have not used the rod yet, when I received it I was very impressed with the quality of the rod. I found it light weight and very balanced. I would expect to find this rod in the $400 range for its quality. A very nice rod, I have been recommending it to all of my friends. 31 May 2014

I recently purchased an Aleka A8 fly rod through a promotional discount deal and am impressed with the quality of manufacturing and the feel in my hand. For the money I don't see how you can go wrong. Thank you.26 May 2014
