Evening one and all, I’m looking for recommendations regarding a new surf rod. Has anyone had any experience with either the penn allegiance or penn prevail? I’m looking at either the 10’ 10-15kg or 12’ 12-20kg models in each variant. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated,

Ryan

I have the prevail 12-20. And while I’m yet to use it, the build quality is great and it feels strong as hell. Came highly recommended by two separate dudes in two separate independent stores. For the price I believe you can’t beat it

Thanks Mjadeb1984, I can get the prevail for the same price as the allegiance at the moment so I think that’s the way I’m going to go. Just wondering if anyone has noticed any difference in the handling/weight characteristics between the 2.

Only difference between the 2 rods are the prevail has "casting" K series guides and it has a gloss finish. same blank to my knowledge. 

I have the Allegiance and never had any dramas with it. I don't think the guides make to much of an difference, its more Wank factor look then anything. but If you can get a prevail for around the same price as the Allegiance you might aswell go for the prevail!

I've got a Prevail in the 10-20 Kg class. I bought it as a backup to a Daiwa Sensor Surf in the same weight class.  I can't fault the Prevail but the Daiwa 'feels' a lot nicer and casts heavier baits better. I don't think you can go wrong with the Penn.
