PENN® Squall™ Lever Drag Reels
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

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!

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
