  1. Thanks for the info lads. This is going to be a second surf setup so the Daiwa’s are a little pricey, but the Penn seems like a good thing, and with the sale on the prevail at the moment I think it’s hard to beat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. 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. [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. 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 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. If you’re looking for something mid tier just to get the job done and be reliable, I would highly recommend the Shimano raider rods, either in the rack or bream model in line class 1-3kg and a sienna 1000/2000/2500 reel. This combo will be more than adequate for many years of fishing and well within your budget.

  5. Sid King owned it when I was working there. Is Grant still running the kitchen? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Cheers for the info undies, I’m going to have to get the kids to knock me up a tub one weekend as a little project, some of the ones I’ve seen here have obviously been well thought out. I’ve heard of a few people getting followed by bronzies out here but this far I’ve only ever been ‘harassed ‘ by banjo’s lol keep up the good work mate [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Thanks lofty, I know the type. I’m a diesel mechanic and have a similar waxed canvas bag I used for smoko that I’m sure will outlive me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Thanks Chuck, I already grabbed an Ugly Stik bag, but will consider one of these as a back up for the price. [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. SurfcaztR, just a heads up mate...BCF has the nasci on sale for $109.00 for whichever size you want. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. G’day TL, thanks for the input mate. I had a Daiwa sling bag in the past which was great for rocks fishing. I had considered a fly vest due to doing a bit of kayaking as well, but ultimately settled on the wading bag. I enjoyed reading the wading tubs thread, it looks like you’re all set, I especially like the rod/landing net holders. I’m very keen to give the arrowz a workout, seems I got on the bandwagon late as they are sold out nearly everywhere. Good luck with it mate! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. That’s a bloody good idea mate, I’m pretty sure I’ve got one of those maglite loops in the shed. How often do you need to oil/wax that leather knife sheath? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. They really are quite robust, my only suggestion would be if you’re going to maintain it yourself, use a decent amount of rubber grease or petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on the seals each time you strip the reel. Once the seals dry and perish they’re useless. Having said that, mine are still supple and sealing perfectly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
