I recently bought a 2 weight aleka fly rod. It is superb, casts a really delicate tiny dry fly beautifully. Even little wild brownies in small streams can give a good account of themselves.
Graham Easton, KentAbout ALEKA X2 Fly Rod Series
Excellent customer advice. The new rod is softer than I expected with quite a lot of middle action but none the worse for that as it has a nice feel when casting. Fantastic quality combined with a very light weight must put the X2 up there with far more expensive rods. I recommend this excellent firm to all trout fishing enthusiasts. Graham Easton

Hi, bought an X2 Fly Rod and received it today. Rod looks fantastic and is very lite. Haven't used it yet but will be out looking for her Ladyship over the weekend, weather permitting. Have spent a lot of time looking at lighter rods and deliberated for months between some of the more well known brands and one in particular that I use now but at a heavier weight. Came to the conclusion that the X2 was the best option all round. Also bought an A8 WF 3# floating line and it looks/feels really good quality. Bought it to compliment the rod when not using a French leader. Delivery was great and was kept updated at all times regards dispatch and delivery. Will definitely look to Aleka for future purchases. Many thanks, Mark

After researching several different nymphing fly rods and after a lot of different recommendations from some professional angler friends, I came across a rod I had not heard of, the Aleka X2 EVOLVE.
So, I contacted John at Aleka to inquire about the EVOLVE, after several conversations with John I was sold. I ordered the EVOLVE for a tournament I was fishing, in just a couple weeks from our conversation. I had the rod within a few days and was out on the water putting it through the paces, it performed flawless, first fish landed was a 20” rainbow. Then came the tournament, in each session the EVOLVE became my primary rod, the feel this rod has when short line or long line nyphing is amazing, I could feel the nymphs bouncing of the rocks, and the subtle take that the trout were giving was noticed immediately. Landed a 25” rainbow beast, on this 3wt. allowed me to fight this fish and put in the net in less than 2 minutes. For me an incredible accomplishment on a 3wt. using 6x tippet. The EVOLVE is now a major player in my arsenal. I have now order the Aleka X2 2wt. 10’ and can’t wait to see what happens now. Thanks to Aleka for an incredible product.

I can't believe the how good the action is on my new Massimo X2 rod over a "traditional" action rod.
All in all very pleased indeed.

Hi, I have used my Aleka X2 twice and have caught twenty rainbow trout. The rod is a pleasure to use and so light! Thank you. Jim Thomson

I recently purchased the ALEKA X2 Fly Rod 9' #5 and couldn't be happier. Beautifully constructed of quality materials, this rod delivers everything you need in a rod without the expensive price tag. If you can forego big name brand bragging rights, save your money. I fished this rod for a week across OR/ID/MT with nymphs and dries - love the fast action and spine performance.The attention to detail is great top to bottom - don't know how they can deliver this level of value.... and the rod tube is twice as nice as the others I have.

I ordered an Aleka X2 10' 4wt rod for nymphing on the Missouri River and smaller streams in my area. Service was prompt with excellent communication after the sale. I was surprised at the quality of not only the rod but the sock and tube. The rod is a true fast action rod that has the appearance and feel similar to much more expensive rods I own. It would be a good value at twice what it costs. I am very happy with my X2 and Aleka Sports and will purchase products again in the future.

Great rod at great price!! Nothing better for Italian style flyfishing! A great value product! I love it!
Richard Dreiss, United StatesAbout ALEKA X2 Fly Rod Series
Nice rod. Well packaged and will be great for dry flies. 10 foot-4. Too cold to fish in Ct right but I'll get it out on the Farmington River as soon as possible.
Jake Kiser, United StatesAbout ALEKA X2 Fly Rod Series
The rod has a really nice feel to it. It is easy to change sizes with the additional extensions. I was also really pleased with the customer service and the follow up from Aleka. The rod came with a much nicer rod tube than I had expected as an added bonus.

My X2 Evolve arrived two days after ordering. Tracking # was supplied with receipt. Great Customer communication / service!! Was able to fish with the Evolve that weekend. Rod lived up to expectations as I was able to switch from nymphing (10') to casting dry flys (8'8") without removing reel or line from the rod. I'm a believer!!

I purchased a Aleka X2 fly rod recently. They were swift to acknowledge my online purchase and gave me an estimated delivery date. I received an e-mail when the package left their shop along with a tracking number. Package arrived when they said it would and in excellent condition, I will shop Aleka when I am in need of fly fishing supplies.
John Kinsfather, United StatesAbout ALEKA X2 Fly Rod Series
I am very pleased with the Rod and reel I purchased but most impressed withe personal service and follow through on the order. The new X2 6 piece 3 weight cast very smoothly in all 3 lengths and is incredibly light. I am looking forward to putting the 10' length on a big river next month. I think overall Aleka is putting together some well thought out products and at "good value " price points combined with a good dose of Customer Service.
