The Penn Squall 15
March 28, 2015
I bought this reel from Tackle Direct who's service has always been great..Will it cast far? Yes it will..bottom line..The Handle sits too far to the right of the reel creating an uncomfortable imbalance when reeling in a fish..the rod wants to rock back and forth with every turn of the handle..this is a pain because not having a level wind, you are busy already guiding the line back on the reel with your thumb..second problem...the clicker after 1 year is already shot..it wants to stay engaged all the time..when I took it apart to inspect the problem I witnessed the worst clicker design I have ever seen on a bait casting reel..I'm not even going to bother to replace it because it is simply junk..I'm going to take the clicker which I depend on out of the reel and just keep the rod locked down..I also got a Spinfisher V about the same age that's giving me problems..after 1 year of use and $300 spent between the 2 reels, I shouldn't be having any problems..thats why I spend money and refuse to buy cheap junk is because I don't want these problems..all I can say is I'm done with Penn and my trusty Abus are still going strong after years of service

you have left hand of this reel
If you wanted this reel in a left hand model, you would have to get it with the level wind feature. Here is a link to an example of a left hand model. Notice it says "LH" at the end of the model number. That means that it is a left handed model. http://www.tackledirect.com/penn-sql20lwlh-squall-level-wind-reel.html

Is the squall15 the same as 525mag and is it made in the usa
Steve, the 525 Mag and the Squall 15 are right about the same size. The Squall is produced in China.

Is this a good reel for wahoo and king fish trolling and bottom fishing ??
It will work, but we suggest going with a lever drag, 2 speed (PEN-1193) instead. Lever drag is better for trolling and the 2 speed will help lift the bottom species.

is this a good reel for wahoo king fish and bottom fishing??
It is ok. We suggest going with the lever drag, 2 speed Squall (PEN-1193) instead. It is a better trolling reel for the Wahoo and the 2 speed will give you more lifting power when bottom fishing.

Is it necessary to put any kind of backing on the spool of a squall 15 before spooling with braid?
You always want to make sure when spooling braided line on a reel that it does not slip on the spool. You can either apply tape or a little bit of mono backing before loading up with braided line.
