Penn went further and build the Squall series in a lever drag form, and they’ve kept the price within reach of the most budget conscious fishermen at $159-179. They’ve not neglected the lefty angler, by providing their 40 and 60 LD’s in left hand form. It really is nice to see what Penn’s been working on the past couple years, they now are making the reels that anglers have been asking for, and West Coast anglers in particular got their wish with the 25N size which is now becoming part of Penn’s production in the casting oriented Squall, Fathom and Torque Series reels. And, they make use of aluminum spools, marine grade bronze and stainless steel gear components, and their live spindle – free floating spool design for casting performance. And the reels benefit from HT100 drag elements and Penn’s useful Versa-Drag for the utmost of user fine tuning for their own particular requirements. The anti-reverse is also robust and redundant with both a one way anti-reverse bearing AND silent back up ratchet (dog).
The PENN Squall Lever Drag is lightweight and ergonomic. Made from graphite for its lightweight and corrosion resistant benefits. Stainless steel gears with a high speed gear ratio make the Squall LD perfect for nearshore trolling for kings and dolphin. Our proprietary Dura-Drag system will be there when you hook that big wahoo and he tries to smoke your reel! Left hand available in the 40 and 60 sizes.
