Penn Fishing ReelsPenn Squall Reel

Penn Squall

  The Penn 525mag has been redesigned and is now available in two sizes the Penn Squall 12 and the Penn Squall 15 (12 is a narrow and the 15 is the wide). The Penn Squall Series has a lightweight graphite frame with a machined and anodized aluminum spool and a stainless steel reel stand. The Squall features a magnetic casting break that has an easy to adjust dial (externally) to fine tune the reel.

  Now with a "live spindle" the free floating spool provides free spool like never before. Its shielded stainless steel ball bearings will stand up to the saltwater and beach environment. Read more below...

Penn Squall Mag Cast Star Drag Reels Feature:

Both Squall sizes offer a quick high-speed gear ratio (6 to 1) with their high-strength marine grade bronze alloy main gear and precision-machined stainless steel pinion gear. Penn's HT-100 drag washers provide smooth drag under heavy loads and their Versa-Drag system allows for multiple drag settings for various fishing conditions.

The Squall's spool features "Line Capacity Rings" which eliminate the question of how much line you have left when fighting a fish. The three lines on the spool flange let you know when you have 1/3rd, 2/3yd or a full spool of line. Also if you re-spool often these lines give you a benchmark for backing your superlines with monofilament which will help eliminate wasted time and line.


What are the changes from the old 525mag? First and foremost the new Squall has a free floating spool aka live spindle as well as the new magnetic casting break dial (old style had a slide adjustment). Also the Squall has a graduated (small clicks are heard when adjusted) star drag and spool tension, line capacity rings and a more substantial clicker.
