The Penn Fathom FTH15LD2 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel is one of my personal favorites, and a customer favorite here at J&H. This reel is so versatile, you can use it to target bottom fish like cod, haddock, blackfish, grouper and snapper, or jigging for bass, blues, and cobia. The FTH15LD2 features a full metal body and sideplates for top shelf durability, as well as a powerful DuraDrag HT-100 drag system that puts out 20# of drag. The QuickShift 2 speed system, which is the same system the coveted International series uses, switches easily from a high speed 6.1:1 down to a powerful 2.8:1 low speed for incredible torque. Because of the small size of the FTH15LD2, you can target large species with light weight medium heavy fast action rods, and the Penn Fathom FTH15LD2 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel will hold an impressive 300 yards of 50# braided line.

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.
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.
