The Squall Level Drag Wheel from Penn offers reliable performance and extreme versatility for a variety of saltwater applications. The rapid-adjusting lever drag sits below the top of the reel frame, so it's out of the way of line loops and slack line. The drag lever is also ratcheted to prevent drag creep during long trolling runs. The Dura-Drag washers eliminate hesitation, even under extreme drag settings. When not in use, Switchblade™ harness lugs stow flush on the frame for sleek ergonomics. The Versa-Handle system quickly converts from power to high-speed lengths in minutes for maximum technique versatility. Line-capacity rings let you manage line at a glance while battling hard-running fish with 1/3, 2/3 and full-spool increments. Lightweight graphite frame and sideplates; rugged aluminum spool. High-strength bronze gears.
