    Most 60's are.

    The Squall series is growing; you may see some even larger models soon!

    Will there really be a Squall larger than the 60? What would it be targeted for?

    Largest model here [50VSW 2-speed]:
    Penn Squall SQL50VSW Lever Drag 2-Speed Reel | J&H Tackle - YouTube
    However, a pair of the slightly smaller 30VSW 2-speeds has been in use as the "loaner/balloon/trolling" reels for the Vagabond since last October.
    Captain Mike Lackey likes them so much, I had to literally pry the test models away from him at the Fred Hall Show so that I could send them back for the engineers to do an analysis.
    He wanted to be sure he would get them back in time for start of his season [he did].

    I have to say that I worry about a reel with 40# of drag made of graphite. But if Penn can pull it off, you've got a real winner.
