Offshore fishing is challenging enough with overly-aggressive fish determined to keep anglers at a disadvantange. The new PENN® Fathom™ Lever Drag reels take the advantage away from the fish and gives the edge to the angler. These full metal body reels offer many of the benefits of a fully machined version for a fraction of the investment.
The Fathom LD is offered in a range of sizes to suit most bottom fishing techniques, including jigging, live bait or trolling. It doesn't matter if it's collecting Bonita for bait, chasing Yellowfin Tuna or searching for Sailfish. The Fathom features an adjustable lever drag that goes from free spooling to a 40-pound maximum drag thanks to the hesitation-free Dura Drag™ System.
Each lightweight reel includes a die-cast aluminum frame and sideplates plus a forged/machined aluminum spool. Strong, stainless-steel main and pinion gears are corrosion resistant as are the five shielded stainless-steel bearings. The stainless-steel gear train is machined and drilled for optimum toughness as well as weight reduction.
The braid-ready spool has line capacity rings to let the angler know how much line remains on the spool during the heat of battle. Lugs keep the reel securely fastened to the angler or boat.
