The Penn Fathom Level Wind reel series is designed for general fishing and incorporates a stainless steel level-wind system that automatically lays the line evenly on the spool. They offer a gear ratio of 4.3:1 to really pressurise big fish, but have a diecast metal reel frame and side-plates, a forged aluminum spool, plus bronze main and pinion gears, all combining to give total strength and lifting power. These reels also feature a proven HT-100 drag system, four strategically positioned stainless steel ball-bearings to smooth the retrieve and spread overall load. Though ultimately tough, the Fathom is also light in weight and compact in size.
The heavy-duty construction make it a true workhorse and favourite of charter boat captains and hard fishing anglers. It is designed to handle extreme abuse day-in and day-out so whether you are bottom-fishing or casting live bait, the Fathom will stand up to the hardest fishing conditions.
