Fathom Lever Drag reels use Penn's Dura-Drag material, which contains a special Phenolic bonding agent that prevents premature breakdown of the carbon fiber material while providing a barrier to water.

I use this reel for my marlin pitching rod, the fast free spool and retrieval work great for maneuvering around the marlin.
Nice reel, light and strong

Reel is light and strong, the only thing I would criticize would the gears are not as smooth as I have come to expect from Penn
Perfect chunk/jig reel
November 4, 2015
I bought this reel with the intent on jigging and chunking inshore bluefin in the 30-150# class, and yellowfin/longfin in the canyons, as well as a tilefish/deep water bottom fishing reel. Loaded with 600 yards of 65# JB solid, it has worked flawlessly so far with a few trips and quite a few fish under it's belt so far. The drag is smooth right out of the box and the reel is very easy to service yourself. If you plan on fishing this reel with a longer mono topshot, fill it with 500 yards of 65# braid, 600 yarsd of 65 fills it right to the top with only just enough room for a 30 or so foot wind on.

I would recommend taking a look at the BlackHole Rods. They are rated for heavy drag settings and heavier braids to handle larger pelagic fish. You can find more information on these rods through the following website link; http://www.tackledirect.com/black-hole-rods.html
