Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rename it the Penn Clydesdale I think that it should be renamed the penn clydesdale because I used it to "HORSE" a huge grouper out of a reef. Later, we used it to grab some monster blackfin snapper Worth money but clips on the LDLH40 would be nice January 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great reels I have the 60LD this reel is matched with a penn 30-80 boat rod cast well and acts like a winch under pressure great reel April 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing I bought this reel back in january and do a lot of fishing mostly fresh water I bought the 50 for catching giant blue and flathead catfish I paired it with a 10ft abu garcia workhorse that i have had for several years and it preformed flawlessly but I would expect nothing less from penn I caught everything from small 10lb cats up to a 72lb flathead and everything in between with this reel the bait click is soft enough to alert me to the softest bite and when your trying to pull a wiskered giant off the bottom the drag is powerful enough to really put pressure on them I also use them to snag for spoolbill in the spring time and have to be able to cast long distances I had never tried casting a lever drag and was very surprised at how easy it was and the distance is amamzing being able to throw a 2 to 3 oz sinker well over 100yds I am however having to buy a new one for the fact that mine was stolen overall this reel is an amazing buy for anyone who wants to go after big fish either in salt or freshwater December 7, 2012

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.

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.
