The Penn Fathom FTH60LD2 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel will be the reel that can replace your large, ridiculously heavy offshore reels at a fraction of the price. Seriously, the FTH60LD2 is the Marshawn Lynch of the Fathom series – it’s absolutely BEASTMODE! You’re looking at 40# of smooth drag thanks to Penn’s reliable DuraDrag HT-100 drag system, an utterly insane capacity holding over 700 yards of 100# braid, and two powerful gears that transition with ease thanks to the QuickShift mechanism. All this power in a reel that weighs in at only 27.3 ounces? Stop it! The Penn Fathom FTH60LD2 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel will be re-writing the books on offshore fishing, as it’s able to tackle the biggest pelagic species – we’re talking tuna, marlin, and swords, as well as monster bottom fish like goliath grouper and cubera snapper.

I purchased the FTH40NLD2 reel and I am very pleased with it. I went bottom fishing last week and was amazed at how smooth and easy it landed two 19 lb amberjacks. I am 67 and have a bad back and a cervical fusion so this reel made fishing easy for me. I chose Penn because they make good products and have outstanding support. Thank you JandH.com for the sale and outstanding customer support. I would definitely purchasing from you again.
Picked up the 15LD2 and have used it for about 3 weeks now. Love it. Compact, light, very smooth and the football shape handle feels great in my avg size hand. Paired it with Sloopster SLJ66XH and I know this will handle anything from the inlet to near shore without breaking the bank.
