The Squall Lever Drag's Versa-Handle system allows you to choose how long the handle should be in less than a minute (tools are included with each reel). Function and ergonomics were on top of the list when we designed the Squall Lever Drag reels. Note that the lever drag does not protrude above the frame of the reel so there is no way for the line to loop over and hang up on the lever of the Squall Lever Drag, which could result in a break-off. Virtually eliminates hesitation, even under extreme drag settings. This is the same top of the line drag material used in International V series reels. Eliminates 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, 2/3rd or a full spool of line. Also if you respool often, these lines give you a benchmark for backing your superlines with monofilament which will help eliminate wasted time and line.
