Product Description

The Penn Fathom FTH12 Star Drag Reel is an amazing little reel! Anglers may look at the small stature of the reel and think that it won’t hold up to sizable fish, but they’d be dead wrong. The FTH12 puts out an impressive 25# of drag thanks to Penn’s trusty VersaDrag system complete with HT-100 washers, and the free-floating spool will hold over 300 yards of 30# braid. A true multi-purpose reel, the 6:1 gear ratio of the FTH12 is perfect for either jigging or bottom fishing, and the full metal body and sideplates ensure your FTH12 will hold up after years of rugged saltwater use. Complete with 6 shielded stainless steel bearings, the FTH12 can be used to target stripers on the jig in the morning, then bucktailing fluke in the afternoon. Kayak anglers love the lightweight FTH12 for trolling tube and worm applications.

    Fathom 12 is a Beast

    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.
