Penn Squall Lever Drag Reels


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. Lets face it, harness lugs can be uncomfortable when you are palming the reel on the cast or retrieve. If you dont 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.

Two major problems with design
September 30, 2013
I have almost two dozen Penn reels including six Squall 60LDs. Overall they perform well and are a good value. They do have two design problems which are significant enough that I will never buy any more. First, when slow trolling for billfish with live/dead natural bait on circle hooks using clips, you want to use no drag and let the clicker prevent backlash which will occur at initial strike. The clickers on these reels chronically fail. Second, the "switchblade" harness lugs stink. I don't know who thought this up but it wasn't a fisherman. They are impossible to hook up by yourself and difficult to use with help. With multiple hookups during a hot bite, help isn't always available. Penn needs to test such features with actual fishermen on the water before incorporating them in their products--the old fixed lugs worked just fine. Jimmy Mathis San Carlos, MX
Pros:
Good drag, good value
Cons:
Clickers and "switchblade" harness lugs suck.
