The Penn Squall SQL40LD Lever Drag Reel can be used for deepwater bottom fishing, or for trolling umbrella rigs or bunker spoons with monofilament. Some anglers choose to avoid wire line, and I don’t blame them as wire is kind of a pain in the you-know-what. It’s got a solid 18# drag thanks to the DuraDrag lever drag system that has a ratcheted lever so no accidental drag slippage occurs during hours of trolling. The SQL40LD has 6 shielded stainless steel ball bearings, giving you a nice smooth retrieve, and will hold plenty of monofilament or braided line (300 yards of 40# mono/625 yards 65# braid) putting deep wrecks easily within range. With a 5.1:1 gear ratio, the Penn Squall SQL40LD Lever Drag Reel is on the quick side – letting you rapidly and efficiently check your bait or un-foul your umbrella rig.
