An affordable 100% graphite series for targeting tarpon, redfish, speckled trout, and snook in shallow water. Each PENN® Allegiance™ rod is built on an incredibly strong, lightweight 100% graphite blank topped with premium Fuji® aluminum oxide guides. Fast, fine-tuned tip actions deliver superb feel and castability. Rod also features a sturdy graphite reel seat and contoured EVA grips for maximum comfort and control.
I bought this pole on recomendation of a fishing buddy.
I have model ALLIN1530S70 coupled with a Penn Battle 5000 and 30 Lb power pro braid.
First off, the rod is beautiful.The main color is grey,and the secondary colors are black and red. I think the Battle 5000 (or equivilant) is the perfect size reel for this rod.
This rod is light, and very sensitive. So sensitive, I can easily tell if my lure is "swimming" correctly by the feel. Any weed or tangle, you won't feel the lure "swimming". You can feel without a doubt, every time a fish "hits" or is "on".
This rod also has a strong "backbone" meaning it doesn't bend right over if you hook up a larger fish.
I normaly bring two or three rods fishing, and I find myself always reaching for this one first.
I wish they made a smaller version I could put my Battle 2000 on for fresh water, or schoolie stripers and blues.

weak and fragile
I bought the 1017S76 to use with my Okuma Coronado 40 reel. The rod is rated for 30 lb braided line, which is exactly what my reel was spooled with. I went to set the drag at 12 lbs, and before I even got to 12 lbs, the rod broke in 2 places between the grip and the 1st guide.
