Penn SQL25N PROS & CONS
December 20, 2013
Bought reel from TackleDirect and very pleased with the punctual delivery and price.
Pros:Lightweight, smooth free spool and fast retrieve. Love Penn for always providing tool and lubricants.
Cons:The gap between the spool edges and housing is too wide that even 30 LB mono goes between them on backlashes.Once the line wraps around the spool axle, you need tools to remove one side of the reel to unwrap the line from the spool axle. With the old Penn Squider, I never had my 25LB mono get jammed between the spool and housing; it has a metal housing and thus provides tighter gaps to eliminate line jam ups on backlashes.
