Penn Ally Boat Rods are constructed with a one-piece tubular glass blank and a solid tip to help prevent breakage. For line management Penn has added Fuji stainless steel guides with aluminum oxide inserts. Standup models feature both Fuji guides and Pac Bay rollers. For added comfort, Ally rods feature PENN?s Triangular-shaped EVA Torque foregrip to reduce rod rotation while under pressure. Heavy duty graphite and machined aluminum reel seats keep a secure grip on the reel, while an aluminum gimbal provides added strength and a secure connection during the fight.

My third Ally purchase

I purchased this rod to pair with a Penn International 80W. The rod is a great match for the offshore setup I needed. This is my third Ally rod. I love the look and performance of the rods.

Penn Ally Review
September 7, 2017
I purchased two of the Penn Ally rods recently for a Long Range Tuna Trip out of San Diego CA. It was a good move having these rods ready for the Big Bluefin Tuna action. These rods worded perfect for landing these large Tuna in the 100-200 pound range, with plenty of action and enough stamina to get them boat side quickly while coupled to a quality reel. The grips and butt length are perfect for belt or rail fishing, comfortable for the long fight. The grip and rod combination support larger reel well, for this outing I fitted one of my 25 size reels when attached to these rods had good balance.
ProsGood, quality and finish. Grips are perfect. The rollers seem durable and are smooth, the clearance is tight so braid is not a problem. The guides are perfectly aligned. The weight of these rods is excellent, light yet powerful.
ConsI would like to see this Ally rod in a 6'6" length.
For that white marlin bite

A good rod for the white marlin battle. Pairs nicely with the Penn FTH40NLDHS Lever Drag Reel
Great rod for the money

Used on a 50w and the tip is still sensative enough to feel anything on the other end of the line
ProsSensativity and feel in hand
ConsFor being a 50-100 i would think its to flexible for anything bigger than a 50w

I haven't had the chance to use it yet but it is well built and can't wait to land some stripers next season
Nice affordable rod

I bought this rod over the winter and finally had a chance to use it this weekend. Fought a 300lb Thresher shark for over 50 minutes. This rod has great action, the guides are smooth and the my forearms never tired with the grip.
Great For Trolling
December 26, 2014
These rods are great for trolling. Strong tips for heavy lures. The roller guides protect and extend the life of the line. The rod handles are easy on the hands while reeling in. The rod butts fit in rod holders perfectly.
Great Trolling Rod
October 17, 2014
I love this rod for trolling. It not to heavy to handle but great for fighting large fish. I have this as many other Penn trolling rods but I really like this one. Looking to get a few more.
Penn is the greatest for the money hands down!!

This rod is built like a tank with excellent quality. Penn has always come through for me and has done it again with this rod. Nice oversize guides that are double footed that won't give up easily during a hard fight. Love the torque grip feels more natural in my hands than a normal round grip. Buy one you won't regret it.
