I have ordered a Aleka 5/6 wt rod reel combo not long ago, I have to say i am very happy with Aleka setup. I have owned many big name rods in the past. Aleka rods throw as well as all the big names on the market, they throw smooth with little effort, and recover quick when you make a mistake. I have to say i am very happy with my 5/6 wt setup. I am sure you would be too.

A fish in the hand is worth two in the pond. Aleka had the gear in my hand from across the pond in no time at all with their fast shipping. I am gearing up for another spring fishing trip in Maine and can't wait to try my Aleka outfit.02 April 2013

I recently purchased the A6 10wt combo. I like the castability of the rod. Ready to purchase a 9wt. Will post again after my Northern Pike trip to MN in May.

I started fly fishing about 14 years ago as a teenager, which i had no clue what i was doing then and recently picked it up again last summer. After a few months of using the starter set up (that was 14 years old) and after I got tired of casting a rod that had the action of a wet noodle... I started looking for an upgrade. I was originally sold on the Orvis Clearwater outfit, but then I found Aleka! Which I am glad i did! I ordered the a4 8wt outfit, some flies and a fly box on a Wednesday night online. I received the packages on the following Monday. I am (and my wife) impressed the quality and workmanship of the rod and reel. It casts better than some other top name rods that I have tried in my quest for a new rod. I purchased the 8wt with intentions on using it for large mouth bass. The fast action rod allows me to pick up those big flies and turn it back over quickly with 1 or 2 double hauls to get it back out where I want it. A review I read on this rod said that it excelled at long range casts but not so well at short casts. I can tell you that it is great at short casts! The flies were great quality and the waterproof fly box is awesome espcially for the price! I plan on placing another order in the near future for a 5wt a8 outfit. Overall: very satisfied customer!21 February 2013

I was surprised my order came to my door step ahead of schedule. The ALEKA A4 Fly Rod color (brown) was better looking in person. I did some mock casting that day with my new rod and it performed great! I could actually cast further with it, I'm thinking it might be Aleka's fly line or it could be the rod never the less, I was happy. I took my new rod to my favorite spot that weekend. The A4 performed even better on the water.

I already owned 2 fly-fishing outfits and wasn't really looking for another when I received an email about Aleka rods being on sale. I ended up buying an A3 and was amazed how quickly it shipped from the UK to West Virginia. I was so impressed that a few days later I bought a reel, line, backing, stocked up on leaders, and bought some flies & wooly buggers. All of this arrived quickly too. Very impressive service. I'm going to continue to buy from Aleka and hope that I can use my Rewards points to fish in Scotland someday. 16 February 2013

I have been very surprised by the quality of the products from Aleka. Recently I have purchased an A4 5wt outfit, an A8 4wt reel and an A8 4wt rod from Aleka. The quality of the products is a good as the Able, Sage and Winston products I already own. Those orders have arrived within 4 days from date of purchase. I am looking forward to using them on the many small trout streams we have in the Syracuse, NY area.15 February 2013

I am very impressed with my A8 10' 4wt and Aleka Sports. To start with, the rod was delivered ahead of the arrival date. This rod is very well built. I took the rod out to give it a test run and it performed flawlessly long line nymphing on the twenty five trout I brought to the net that day with two twenty inchers! I am a part-time guide in Western North Carolina and I would recommend this rod to anyone! Justin Anderson13 January 2013

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
Fred in Seattle

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
