Penn Squall 30 Lever Drag Reel. 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.
A modern innovative lever drag reel designed using strong but lightweight graphite construction. It offers a quick shift 2-speed gear system, a high performance Dura Drag drag with a wide, smooth power arc, a forged aluminium spool with line capacity rings, instant anti-reverse bearing, plus an adjustable 3-position line out clicker.
These reels also feature hidden line harness lugs that can be flipped up into position when needed. Available in 30, 40 and 50 sizes there's a Squall Lever Drag to target everything from wreck conger, to Norwegian cod and ling, giant common skate and sharks.

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.
Switchblade™ Harness Lugs
Switchblade 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 Switchblade 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 casting reels on the market. Included on 40 size only.
Review by Michael Pullen
I bought 4 Squall 30 reels for my family and myself. We have not used the reels yet but have used the Penn Squall 40s belonging to the skipper of Sea Breezes 3 at Brighton the reels are smooth to use and are well made. We bought the 30s as we all thought that the 40s were a bit too big to use wrecking with uptide casters.
