The Penn Fathom FTH30LD2 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel is just the right size for many fishing applications. Whether you’re targeting large bottom dwelling species like grouper, haddock, cod, halibut, or snapper, or you prefer jigging for mid-sided inshore and pelagic species like stripers, blues, amberjack, cobia, yellowtail or blackfin tuna, the FTH30LD2 will perform marvelously. The two speeds are easily transitioned via Penn’s proprietary QuickShift mechanism, the same one that graces the storied International series reels. Putting out an impressive 33# of drag via a DuraDrag HT-100 system, the FTH30LD2 has the backbone to handle vicious runs from all kinds of predatory fish. A full metal body and sideplates ensure your reel will hold up even under extreme duress, and the large forged aluminum spool will handle up to 455 yards of 80# braided line.

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.
