Prevail Surf is rated 4.125 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great rod! I bought an 11' penn prevail surf spinng rod and love it. I bought a cheaper competitor for my second rod and after one day it broke. I said forget it and bought another penn prevail. Don't waste your money with other cheap competition. So yourself a favor and get a Penn Prevail surf rod. You wont regret it. Very light weight and durable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good rod I bought the 10ft casting one as my first surf rod and is a good rod for the money.  When I bought it they told me the power was a Medium Heavy but feel more like on the Heavy side. Paired it with a Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 6601C4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Rod I bought the 10' paired it with a okuma avenger 65 reel and power pro 50 braid. I use a 4.5 oz sinker and with a size 5 owner circle hook with a bluegill head for catfishing.  I'm no expert in casting at all but can chuck this set up a consistent 100 yards.I absolutely love this rod and would recommend it to anyone  strong cool looking and casts like a champ. The pole does all the work. Penns customer service is by far the best I ha e ever dealt with. When I got this pole the main eye was broke. I contacted them through email and got a reply within an hour. They got everything fixed for me by the next day. I will be buying from them again.  Thanks Penn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Stingray!! Bought the rod on the way to the Gulf for some surf fishing and put my Fierce 6000 reel on it. The next day I landed a big stingray! The rod did an AWESOME job and so did the reel, it turned out to be a very nice combination.
