Consider serviceability down the road, both your Penn and the Avet will have parts down the road, I personally have burned through 5 Okuma conventionals, a Gemini, 2 cvl 20's and 2 gold pisces reels, my Epixors have performed well I have 2 ,5.0 reels one is a parts reel for the others and a 5.0 baitrunner.

If you are worried about serviceability then Penn has to get the nod in our area. I just drop my reels off at the factory in Philly when they need service.

I like buying American when possible and ever since Avet dropped the SX and MX single speed to match the Atlas 200 you can't beat the Avets. We have 5 in various sizes and have nver had problem with any of them.
