The Penn Squall SQL30VS Lever Drag 2-Speed Reel continues the Squall’s dominance in the light bodied offshore reel market. Even though the reel body is graphite, it’s designed with Penn’s proprietary “V” shaped reinforced frame that evenly distributes pressure throughout the reel and will handle the stress exerted by large sharks, tuna, billfish, and wahoo. The SQL30VS features Penn’s DuraDrag lever drag system that has both a ratcheted drag lever and clickable preset, and puts out 32# drag which can stop even the largest pelagic predators. This lightweight 30 wide sized reel packs the punch of a reel that costs twice as much, and comes with the same QuickShift 2 speed mechanism as the International for easy transitioning during the fight. The gearing, which comes in at 4.2:1/1.8:1 was designed to easily crank down on large predatory gamefish, and the 4 shielded stainless steel ball bearings also assist with that exhausting task. The Penn Squall SQL30VS will handle 600 yards of 50# monofilament, or an imposing 1,485 yards of 80# braid. Most anglers will use 500 yards of 80-100 braid with a large monofilament topshot for optimal performance.
