The Penn Fathom FTH40LW Levelwind Reel is a beast of a levelwind! Weighing in at a scant 24.3 ounces, the FTH40LW performes like a much more powerful (and heavier) reel. Thanks to Penn’s incredibly reliable VersaDrag system with HT-100 washers, the FTH40LW pumps out 30# of drag – definitely an impressive number for a star drag levelwind reel! Speaking of that levelwind, it’s coated with Titanium Nitride for years of rough saltwater use. The FTH40LW is used to target large saltwater bottom dwelling species including cod, pollock, tilefish, snapper, grouper, etc. 3 shielded ball bearings ensure a smooth retrieve, and the 4.3:1 gear ratio provides plenty of torque while not being mind-numbingly slow. Thanks to a deep, forged aluminum spool, the FTH40LW will hold over 500 yards of 80# braid, so don’t be afraid to use this reel in the most extreme bottom fishing locations – deepwater ledges, oil rigs and offshore wrecks.
