Dependability

Pros:Rugged, dependable, multiple purpose reel.

Cons:Lacks centrifugal cast control or magnetic brakes to prevent backlash.

The Bottom Line: I fully recommend the Penn Squidder 140L because it is highly functional and affordable.


The Penn Squidder 140 is a very versatile reel. I have seen it in use for many species of fish such as bluefish, stripers, sea trout, flounder, cobia, spanish mackerel, sheepshead, and pompano. It is used for surf casting, bottom fishing, pier fishing, light trolling, jigging, and casting. It excels at everything because it is rugged, simple to use, has few moving parts to mess up. It owes its popularity to its price which is cheap for a reel of this quality. I have used one extensively for many years without a single problem. I never head to the coast without it. It is a handy no nonsense workhorse of a light reel. The only cons of this reel is that it lacks a centrifugal cast control or magnetic brakes to adjust to prevent backlash. Many would consider it not having a level wind as a con but it is a blessing for surf fishermen. A level wind is a liability on a reel for surf fishing because sand can get in one and seize it up rendering the reel useless until it is field stripped and cleaned which takes precious time out of a day of fishing. The star drag on the reel is smooth and responsive just like on the larger Penn big game reels due to the same high quality drag washers used on both. The clicker on my model is heavy enough to make it loud so it can be heard from a distance when a fish hits and is taking line. The reel comes with a high quality rod clamp, a wrench, oil and instructions on keeping it clean and preventing corrosion from salt exposure. It is a quality package at a affordable price for anyone looking for a no nonsense lightweight saltwater reel.
