Penn’s Fathom FTH25NLD2 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel is a West Coast angler’s dream – 2 speeds (5.5:1 high, 2.8:1 low), mucho drag (33# thanks to Penn’s DuraDrag HT-100 system) and ultra high line capacity (400 yards of 65# braid) all for well under 300 bucks? Shut up! That’s what they said when it came out, but Penn followed through, and the FTH25NLD2 performed as promised. The narrow spooled design of the FTH25NLD2 makes levelwinding a breeze. Utilizing the same QuickShift system as the legendary International series, the FTH25NLD2 effortlessly transitions between gears, all while the 5 stainless steel shielded ball bearings provide a smooth, fluid retrieve. Penn’s full metal body and sideplates guarantee a lifetime of hard use, and the Penn Fathom FTH25NLD2 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel is ideal when targeting yellowtail, amberjack, stripers, bluefish, cobia, and small tuna.

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.
