Workhorse Ive had the reel for about a year and its a workhorse. Ive caught the biggest Blackfin tuna of my life on this reel and it performed flawlessly. The drag was silky smooth during the fight. I like how you can adjust the handle to give you either more speed or more torque. My only flaw about this reel is that it scratches and dings fairly easily. Other than that I would recommend this reel to the avid fisherman who likes fishing off boats or shark fishing off the beach. January 4, 2015
BEAST !!! I have been using the 50 version of this reel now for a little over 4 months now. Spooled with 50lb test, with 100lb powerpro backing, this reel handles all I can thow at it here in Hawaii. Bought specifically for landing Giant Trevally. Using while sliding live bait, this beast of a reel handles. So far the largest brought up with it has been a 47lbs. The drag is smooth and strong, casting is no problem on a 12 ft rod with 8 oz lead. Excellent reel, highly recommend October 18, 2012
Favorite 30 I purchase 2-30LD's to replace 2 reels that were stolen and ended up buying 2 additional reels after using them. Have caught everything from blackfin tuna, Dolphin, sailfish, kings and even Wahoo with no disappointment. Reel preformed well under pressure with no failures January 10, 2012
Won Snapper Tournament with this! I purchased a 40LD last year and took it out bottom fishing. When I got on the boat, the deck hand made a comment about me busting that thing before the day was up. Bot did I surprise him! First I bring in a 28.4 lb snapper with no issues. At that point the deck hand wanted to try it out and was really impressed with how it handled. The reel is really smooth even under extreme pressure. By the end of the day, the hand and captain were talking about getting these for their boat. I now own a 60LD and can't wait to catch my first yellowfin tuna with this bad boy! January 5, 2013

A: 
No, its way to big in my opinion. This reel is meant for trolling or bottom fishing. Look at the smaller conventional reels or some big spinning reels.

A: 
The 60 can cast very well for a lever drag reel, with a good size weight and a long surf casting rod you should be able to get some good distance.

A: 
I do the same thing, wish I could find more left handed lever drag reels. I ordered a size 50 and it is my favorite reel because I can work the drag and reel with left hand.

A: 
for that question that is only one that you can determine for yourself for me for intance i am right handed and when i am using baitcasters or any other type of conventional reel I reel with my right hand and use my left for all my spinning gear because it is what is most comfortable for me also it is becaues it is alot harder to find left handed baitcasters that it is spinning reels my recommendation is to try to find a penn squaw or something close to it and see what is going to feel more comfortable or natural to you

A: 
No it does not, however with a little practice you can cast them very well. I have a 60 and a 40, the 40 can really throw some weight and the 60 does alright depending on the rod.

This reel can easily hold 30lb and it is silent when you reel it in. Unless you have the clicker on of course haha.

A: 
The squall should be good, no clicking unless you turn the bait clicker on. Size 30 & 40 both should be great for casting big lures with 30# braid.

A: 
I do not have one of these reels, however I have 4 other brands and that is not normal. Check the spool tensioner, maybe loosen that up a little and if it doesn't help you may have a problem with your drag. Have a pro shop check it out, may be a simple fix. Worst case Penn should cover under warranty.
