A big brother to the 25NLD2, the Penn Fathom FTH40NLD2 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel is a big, bad fish catching machine. Pumping out a very stout 40# of drag thanks to Penn’s DuraDrag HT-100 system, the FTH40NLD2 is designed to target large pelagic species on the jig. Large yellowfin, wahoo, record class amberjack and yellowtail, king mackerel, dorado, and sails are all within range of your FTH40NLD2, and with a line capacity of over 500 yards of 80# braid, you can be sure you’ll have that fish turned before it’s too late. Its narrow spool design is just right when doing some vertical jigging, as levelwinding is such a breeze, and the powerful stainless steel main gear is more than strong enough to handle high levels of torque from hard charging pelagic species. You’re looking at a double-dog anti-reverse system which is very reliable, as well as a full metal body and sideplates for a lifetime of hard saltwater use. Dominate with the Penn Fathom FTH40NLD2 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel!

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.
