Penn designed the Squall Lever Drag reels with function and ergonomics at the top of the list. The lever drag does not protrude above the frame of the reel. This means there is no way for the line to loop over and hang up on the lever of the Squall Lever Drag.
  • Lightweight graphite frame and sideplates
  • Forged and machined aluminum spool
  • High-strength marine grade bronze main and pinion gear
  • Dura-Drag washers virtually eliminate hesitation, even underextreme drag settings
  • Switchblade harness lugs (50 & 60 sizes only)
  • Ratcheted drag lever prevents ''drag creep'' caused by hours of trolling and vibrations
  • Line Capacity Rings
  • 5+1 Shielded stainless steel bearing system
  • Instant anti-reverse bearing with silent back up ratchet
Penn Squall Lever Drag Innovative Features:
  • Versa-Handle System - Are you bottom fishing or trolling? Are you looking for power or speed? Penn's Versa-Handle System allows the angler to choose how long the handle should be in less than a minute; tools are included with each reel. Assemble the reel in the long position for more power; assemble in the short position for more speed, your choice.
  • Line Capacity Rings eliminate the question of how much line you have left when fighting a fish. The three lines on the spool flange let you know when you have 1/3rd, 2/3rd, or a full spool of line. Also if you respool often these lines give you a benchmark for backing your superlines with monofilament which will help eliminate wasted time and line.
  • Switchblade Harness Lugs give you all the benefits of traditional lugs without the risk of grabbing loose line and potentially breaking off fish. When the lugs are not in use they remain flush with the reel frame, when you need them they easily pop up with the tip of your finger. The other benefit of the proprietary Switchblade harness lugs is basic ergonomics. Letís face it, harness lugs can be uncomfortable when you are palming the reel on the cast or retrieve. If you donít plan to use the lugs then stow them in the down position and you have one of the most ergonomic reels on the market. Included on 50 & 60 sizes only.

Light weight reel for 40lb line
March 29, 2014
I mounted this reel on an ugly stick Tiger Lite jigging rod. Excellent fishing experience. Controls are easy to manage.and the light weight of the reel makes the combination a pleasure to use. I have arthritis in the fingers of my right hand. Nevertheless the reel handle was easy to grip and the light weight of the reel made it easier to balance the rod without a heavy reel flopping to one side or another.. As for cranking effort, the handle length is adjustable but I was was able to manage at the factory high speed setting. I didn't hook up with a "big one" so I had no chance t try out the drag system.
ProsLight weight, control placement, smooth operation, lever drag, reel capacity ,
