Allen Fly Fishing's Kraken XLA is LIVE!

Our Kraken reel series has been our most popular reel for big game angling enthusiasts since its release in early 2013.  For 2014, we wanted to add to our Kraken series a reel that took everything our anglers loved about the Kraken, and make an extra large arbor version for rapid line pickup.
Despite the XLA's massive arbor, it is extremely lightweight.  The drag system has been completely updated and strengthened to account for the wider range of leverage on the arbor.  In our testing phases on this reel, we managed several sailfish in Mexico up to 100lbs, and dozens of other bluewater species ranging from dorado to tuna.  The rapid line pickup kept us in control of the lengthy battles, helping us connect to the fish in a fraction of the time whether we were frantically reeling in as they charged at the boat, or simply gaining as much progress as we could while slugging out in tug of war.  The speed placement of the handle allows for the fastest retrieve while still maintaining plenty of power, even on the biggest of fish you'll encounter.
The fully sealed, 6 stacked carbon disc drag system is by far the most powerful drag system we have ever developed.  We not only believe this to be the strongest drag in the Allen lineup, but one of the best in the entire fly fishing industry.
