The Penn Fathom FTH15 Star Drag Reel is a best-seller here at J&H and for good reason – it’s a perfect sized conventional reel with the capacity (300 yards of 50# braid) and power (25# of drag) to stop large inshore species like stripers, blues, redfish, snook, dorado, and tarpon. Thanks to Penn’s proprietary Live Spindle Design with a free floating spool, as well as an internally adjustable centrifugal brake, throwing all kinds of metal is a breeze! The FTH15 comes with a full metal body and sideplates, as well as a marine grade bronze main gear and stainless steel pinion. The Penn Fathom FTH15 Star Drag Reel's 6:1 gear ratio is lightening fast for all jigging applications, but it’s powerful enough to tackle tough bottom fish as well.
In the box:
I bought the FTH12 for use alongside my Shimano Talica for bottom fishing. I use it when I don't need the insane power of 80 pound braid. I filled it with 30 pound braid and use it more now than I use my Talica. I get laughed at all the time by guys with their 9/0 senators grouper fishing and, I catch just as much as they do on this little powerhouse reel. I went on an overnight trip and I couldn't put it down. I paired it with the Sloopster SLJ66MH. It has plenty of power and handled everything from 2lb porgies to a 40lb amberjack that had to be released. Great job Penn.
