A true behemoth in the jigging world, the Penn Fathom FTH40NLD Single-Speed Lever Drag Reel performs at the level once only occupied by ultra high-priced reels. It does this at an attractive price point, all while the DuraDrag HT-100 system provides 40# of drag, more than enough to target large pelagic species such as tuna, sailfish, amberjack, wahoo, and king mackerel. You can even do some light sharking with this reel, as the FTH40NLD will hold over 500 yards of 80# braid with room for a mono topshot. The gear ratio of the FTH40NLD is slightly lower than others in its line, at 4.8:1, but that just makes for more torque with every turn of the oversized power handle – especially important when targeting large bottom dwelling species such as grouper, snapper, tilefish, halibut, and cod. A double-dog anti reverse system rounds out this impressive beast of a reel, making the Penn Fathom FTH40NLD Single-Speed Lever Drag Reel a true salt warrior.
