Product Reviews

PENN® Squall® LevelWind is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome reel great for big or medium game I bought the penn squall 50LW 1 year ago. and ever Since then I have been catching all the big fish,not one has got away. This reel is easy to use and has the power and smoothness to handle the biggest of fish. it also works great for medium game aswell. I would definitely recommend this reel for any fisherman that takes there fishing game seriously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No nonsense features at an affordable price After searching many brands and models of conventional level wind reels I found exactly the features at the right price for a reel that I will only use 4 or 5 times per year. Those feature are found in the SQL50LW. Levelwind line control, Lightweight, great spool capacity for 80 to 100 pound braid. Unfortunately I wished for a matching rod/ reel combo where the rod was 1 piece 8 foot length. This I did not find with Penn rods, thus the reel only purchase. This might be a feature Penn can offer in the future. Anyway I am looking forward to my near future offshore outings for reef and deep sea fish using my SQL50LW. A final note is my brother and sister in law purchased 1 each also. Kudos to Penn in providing these affordable options to thier customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well built, great solid clicker Purchased 2 of these reels to primarily fish for blacktip and spinner sharks that average 30 to 100 lbs. Perfect size, great handle that fits and flawless drag. Small enough to be a fair fight but strong enough to handle the bigger fish. Full time guide in Panama city fl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lake Superior and Lake Michigan Approved. Ok. So, I bought 20 of these bad boys. I have 4 of the 20lwlc's for the wire and braided dipsies. They fit 1000 feet of 30lb 7 strand SS wire by blood run, and I actually had to put 250 feet of backing! They're plenty big. Line counter's are flawless, and there is way more than enough drag on these to handle the wire dipsies, you can set them so precisely with the clicker drag system, and when a fish is on, its unbelievable how smooth the drag is, its like there is no start up loss, fish can creep the drag, so smooth! I have 10 of the 20lw's. They can nicely fit 10colors of lead core with 50lb braid backing. I have them on the 4 down rigger rods with a 1000ft of 20lb ande mono, my lead cores and I can fit 150ft of .037 copper with over 700 feet of 50lb 832 backing. I have 4 of the 30lw's, once again, if you need to fit more than 8 colors these are prefered. I have 300ft of .037 blood run copper with 800 feet of 50lb backing. The pick up on these is ridiculous. I raced my buddy's 10color of lead core on a daiwa sealine 57lc, I smoked him, he had 4 colors left. I also have 2 of the 50lw's for my 400' and 350' copper. Fits 700+ feet of 50lb braid. Even faster pick up. The handles are comfy, these reels look so nice on top of all that. I think time will tell whether or not the price point puts these over the tekotas. So far, so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Reels I bought my first Penn Squall reel about a year and a half ago. I now own six of them. I fish for stripers a couple of times a week. The Squall reels have brought in well over a hundred stripers at this point. They are smooth and powerful. I highly recommend the Squall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A freakin work horse I bought the squall 50LW durin the month of July when my other reel finally broke on me. I took it out several nights and put it to the test, The three nights I went out fishin I hauled in fish after fish after fish and this reel never quite on me. the fish ranged from a 2" gaftop catfish, to a 5' 8" bull shark and every time a fish got on that reel brought it in. I'm very happy with this reel and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
