Finally a quality lever drag reel that doesn't break the bank!
We did all the research and testing for you. This is why we only carry one model!
Penn introduced the Fathom Series as a high speed, light-weight saltwater fishing reel at a fraction the price of the competitors. This essentially means 3 reels for the price of 1!
Captain Mike and crew from Reel Reports battle tested this reel under extreme offshore conditions and can proudly recommend as an all purpose reel. From Mahi to Sailfish and everything in between this is the reel we have been waiting for.
This specific model (40N) retrieves 60" of line per turn with a gear ratio of 7.1:1. This is key for when you are using live bait while kite fishing, trolling and bottom fishing.
Captain Mike spooled this reel with 20 LB Diamond Crush fishing line by Momoi. You can go braid or mono depending on your application.
You will love this reel as much as we do in your aresenal.
