My Aleka rod combo arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I am very happy with this high quality product. Would definitely add another Aleka to my rod collection.

Just got my 8 weight combo about a week ago. I haven't had it out fishing yet but it casts like a rocket in my yard.

After placing my order online for the A3 outfit, I had an email the following morning from Aleka saying that due to a special offer they had on the A3 rods that they had sold out of the A3 rods in #7 line weight so would upgrade to the A8 in 7# rod at no extra cost to myself, the reel, line and flies arrived the next day and the rod followed the following day both were very well packaged. The quality of the A3 reel is very good, so smooth to wind. The A8 rod looks smart and the cork is excellent, the rod is a pleasure to cast. I'm one happy customer especially after the upgrade and the quickness and quality of service

Great buy for the price. I have yet to take the rod out on the water but it feels amazing when just flinging around the house. For $200 you get the whole package which includes a warranty, fly line, rod, reel, dry flys, and a rod tube. I'm very impressed with the quality of the products and customer support/shipping. I will definitely be ordering all future fly fishing tackle from Aleka.

I recently ordered the Aleka A3 Outfit as a backup setup for my trout outfit. I've worked with it, almost exclusively, the last couple of outings. The line included is great! The reel looks and feels amazing. The drag system is incredibly smooth and holds its position very well. But the crown jewel of this deal is the rod! After using mine, I'd be willing to pay $100 for the rod included. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of other rods, but I appreciate that! They put as much money into the technology and product as possible. For a rod I'll primarily use in rough country, a wooden or polished nickel butt reel seat isn't necessary. I just need a rod that presents my fly as accurately as possible, and the Aleka A3 is pretty darn good at it.
This is easily one of the best (if not the best) deals on the market as far as fly outfits are concerned. It's worth every penny, and then some.

Dear all, I bought a A3 combo recomended by a friend. I live for 7 years in Slovenia and usually fish in the river Sava Bohinjka. The combo arrived in 3 days and I went to try it in my favourite seccion of the river, where big rainbow trouts and graylings are abundant. I found the rod and reel extremelly good. Congratulations Aleka.

After being introduced to the sport by a good friend last summer, I decided over the winter to invest in a quality road and reel for this year. After much research over the winter, I opted for the A3 combo. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised! My combo arrived less than a week after placing my order. After getting my first chance to use the outfit this past weekend in the NY Catskills, I'm confident I couldn't have made a better decision. My far more experienced buddy/guide/mentor remarked that it made his far more expensive setup feel like "a lifeless cadaver"! You have a new lifelong customer.

My new 6 weight combo is just what I have been waiting for. It has been a real pleasure to fish with it. I have been using it to fish hoppers and large buggers on the White River in AR. Have caught several nice fish with no problem handling them at all with the setup. The casting is very smooth and consistent. I love it!!

I'm loving my new rod and reel outfit! Smooth casting and the rod promises me many years of dependable fun! Look out fishies!
Almost forgot to mention the great price and quick fulfillment. Glad Aleka is now selling in the US!

My fishing guide, Kim Tribe, of Fly Fishing Wales, advised me to buy an Aleka A3 Fly Rod (4 Piece) 9'0" #5 Outfit to fish for trout on the Usk. I ordered it (and some other items) on the Aleka website and everything arrived on time and as ordered. I have just spent two days on the river and the rod performed really well - as good as some costing twice as much. As Kim described it, "a real fishing tool"!

The A3 9'0" #8 rod and reel combo goes perfectly together. Awesome action, sensitive, great distance, and able to handle the 4lb bass I was able to get a hold of. Thank you and I will be shopping with you all again soon.

The truth of the metter is that I have not fished it because of winter conditions. I have had time to case it and it is a sweet casing rod. I bought it to use on small water and I can't wait to hock up with it. Thanks again for the great service and I'll send an update after I go out this spring.
Kevin Kolk, United StatesAbout ALEKA A3 Rod Outfits/Combos
Incredibly pleased with the prompt service and high quality products delivered by Aleka. Both the A3 and A4 combos showed great promise in the first time on the water! The A3 4 wt. rod was a particular surprise for such an economical choice. It's action is both fast and unexpectedly sensitive. One of the nicest light rods I have handled! Both reels are beautiful, smooth, and very easily adjusted. My only critique is that the A4 reel is too small to handle even 50 yards of backing with 8 wt. fly line! Overall a fantastic experience! Looking forward to breaking this gear in properly in Alaska this summer!

I just tried my new A3 8wt outfit in the yard. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical; all I knew about Aleka was that it was popular in Europe and from a few ads and brief reviews in some magazines.
I fished for chum salmon from Puget sound beaches this past fall with a 7 wt Redington. These fish run from 8 to 15 lbs or bigger. The 7 wt is a little undergunned, but it handled the fish--which routinely run 100 or 150 yards into your backing--OK. Still, I decided to get an 8 wt--which is a more common choice--for the next season. So, when I saw the Aleka ads promising top-of-the line performance at bargain prices, I decided to take a chance.
The A3 "casts like a rocket." I got out my 7 wt Redington and Sage, and was surprised by how easy the A3 is to cast. In the hand, the 8wt A3 feels as light or lighter than the 7wt Sage.
I'm looking forward to chum season next fall. Before then, I might try the A3 on 3 to 6 pound Eastern Washington desert rainbows.
