Product Description

The Penn Fathom Star Drag Reels are built on the same rugged platform as the Penn Fathom Levelwind Reels. With its open-face design and internally adjustable centrifugal braking system, the Fathom Star Drag is an excellent casting reel. It features all metal construction, six shielded ball bearings, and Penn's Versa-Drag system which puts out an impressive 25 lbs of drag at max! The Fathom's high gear ratio make it ideal for jigging for big tuna and grouper. If you are looking for a very powerful open-face star grag reel then you have to checkout the Fathom Star Drag Reels from Penn. They are more technologically advanced than other similarly priced reels. Fish with braid or mono.

The Penn Fathom Star Drag Reels are available in several sizes. They are black with gold accents. 

Models: FTH12, FTH15, FTH25N, FTH30, FTH40

    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.
