The Penn Squall Lever Drag Reels incorporate the very latest technology making it the most modern and innovative reel in its class. This Squall is designed from a lightweight graphite body along with the same Dura-Drag as an International.
Versa-Handle - Are you bottom fishing or trolling? Are you looking for power or speed? The Squall Lever Drag’s Versa-Handle system allows you 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 or assemble in the short position for more speed.
Ergonomic Design - Function and ergonomics were on top of the list when we designed the Squall Lever Drag reels. Note that the lever drag does not protrude above the frame of the reel so there is no way for the line to loop over and hang up on the lever of the Squall Lever Drag which could result in a break-off. One less thing to worry about when the line pops out of the clip.
Dura-Drag - Dura-Drag washers virtually eliminate hesitation, even under extreme drag settings. This is the same top of the line drag material used in International V series reels.
Line Capacity Rings - Line Capacity Rings eliminates 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.
Switch Blade Harness Lugs - Switch Blade 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 Switch Blade harness lugs is basic ergonomics. Let's face it, harness lugs can be uncomfortable when you are palming the reel on the cast or retrieve. If you don't plan to use the lugs then stow them in the down position and you have one of the most ergonomic reels on the market.
Features include: Lightweight graphite frames and sideplates, Forged and machined aluminum spool, Stainless steel main and pinion gear, Dura-Drag washers virtually elimite hesitation, even under extreme drag settings, Switchblade harness lugs on 50 and 60 size models, Ratched drag lever prevents "drag creep" caused by hours of trolling and vibrations, Line Capacity Rings, and 6 stainless steel bearing system.
The Squall Lever Drag is available in left hand retrieve models in 40 & 60 sizes.
