The PENN Squall 50 Lever Drag Reel features a sleek design and tough components which makes it a heavy hitter among lightweight graphite lever drags. Its graphite construction makes the reel lightweight yet durable enough to handle the pressures of intense fishing. The reel features switching lugs that pop on and off so you can get the benefits of traditional lugs without the risk of grabbing loose line or potentially breaking off fish. How convenient! You can't go wrong with a reel as durable and versatile as this one.
Versa-Handle Are you bottom fishing or trolling? Are you looking for power or speed? The Squall Lever Drags Versa-Handle system allows you to choose how long the handle should be in less than a minute. Assemble the reel in the long position for more power or assemble in the short position for more speed.
Ergonomic Design The reel's lever drag does not protrude above the frame of the reel so it's impossible for the line to loop over and hang up on the lever which could result in a break-off. That's 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 Switch Blade harness lugs is convenience. 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. It's so easy!
