Penn Squall Lever Drag 2 speed
Big game fishing just got a lot lighter with the Squall Lever Drag! This reel offers great fish fighting features in addition to the Quick-Shift™ 2-speed system. The lightweight graphite frame and side plates houses tough, machined stainless steel main and pinion gears, that are drilled out for weight reduction.
Four shielded stainless steel ball bearings deliver smooth cranking power. The Dura Drag system eliminates hesitation and surging under extreme drag settings.
The forged and machined aluminium spool has the added touch of Line Capacity Rings. This helps keep the angler in the know at a glance on how much line remains on the spool. The double dog ratchet anti reverse eliminates back-play in the handle and is twice as strong as a typical single dog system.
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.
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. That means 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 washers virtually eliminate hesitation, even under extreme drag settings. This is the same top of the line drag material that is being 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. These lines will also give you a benchmark if you respool often 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. Basic ergonomics is another benefit of the proprietary Switch Blade harness lugs. 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.
Offered in three sizes – 16, 30 wide and 50 wide
