Rod/Reel - Penn Squall 25N & Prevail 12'

Getting prepared early to journey down to the coast for Fall surf fishing... who knows, maybe I can get down there some in the summer too. Last year, I had some good luck in Sargent (posted here) but realized the shortcomings of my equipment. I've been studying the forum looking for a good but reasonably priced rod/reel combo. What I've come down to is the following:

Penn Prevail Surf Casting 12' Fishing Rod - $95
Penn Squall Star Drag 25N - $145

That's about the limit of what I'd like to spend. I'd love to get some feedback.

Some Abu off eBay like 7000 are good too. I stopped using baitcast, switched to spin. and like the decision. Kids can cast them now. We've been using the pen. Prevail 10 and 12'' with Penn battle 5-6K and that works well. Can cast where we want and can handle anything you will hook up with so far!

check ebay, every now and then someone will have a new in box Penn Squall for $90-100. I've picked up a couple of the Squall 30 star drags for $90 over the past few years.


they're easily magged.
