The Squall™ Lever Drag construction features a durable lightweight graphite frame and sideplates, recessed ergonomic drag lever, and top of the line Dura-Drag™ system to put your mind and muscles at ease. Its sleek design and tough components is what makes the Squall Lever Drag series a heavy hitter among lightweight graphite lever drags. Watch the video to learn more.
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 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 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.

Bought 2 Squall 30's and they are just great loaded up with 30lb braid. I use them for trolling and the drag is amazing as it works all the way up to full setting. Highly recommended and i am looking into getting bigger reels from the Squall line.
I put a squall 60 ld on the 6 foot 30-80 slammer rod so far it was able to handle 2 skates hooked on to each other. While using this setup i able to to bring both fish up on the pier no problem i love penn reels and matching rods
I bought 4 squall 60s for the upcoming season and had my tackle shop help me spool them with braid they wouldn't hold 1/3 capacity of what they were advertised at I am not pleased with this
