Penn FTH15 Fathom Star Drag Reel


The Penn Fathom Star Drag, with the revolutionary Live Spindle design, is the most castable reel in the market place. The improved configuration allows the spool to spin independently of the spindle and pinion gear, which significantly reduces friction experienced from the extreme acceleration of the spool when casting. Other reels using a ''fixed spindle'' design slow the rotation of the spool and reduce casting distance. Additionally the Live Spindle improves the retrieve of the reel because the spindle and pinion do not need to turn relative to each other during heavy loads, unlike a ''fixed spindle'' reels that result in a difficult retrieve and erratic drag.

Penn Fathom Star Drag features:
  • Full metal body and sideplates keep precise gear alignment under heavy loads
  • Machine-cut marine grade bronze main gear with hardened stainless steel pinion
  • Versa-Drag system with HT-100 washers. By rearranging the sequence of the keyed metal washers and eared HT-100 washers the reel can be set up for fishing a wide range of drag settings without additional parts.
  • Live Spindle Design with free floating spool
  • Internally adjustable centrifugal braking system
  • Line Capacity Rings eliminate the question of how muchline you have left when fighting a fish. The three lines on the spool flange let you know when you have 1/3, 2/3 or a full spool of line. These lines also give you a benchmark for backing your superlines with monofilament.
  • 5+1 shielded stainless steel bearing system
  • Instant anti-reverse bearing with silent back up ratchet

Impressed
October 18, 2014
Heard good things about this reel so I decided to buy one to compare with my Avet SX and Shimano Torium 14. Absolutely LOVE this reel. Caught a 10 lb lingcod on my first trip out with it and it performed flawlessly. My younger brother basically stole my Avet SX and now this has become my go to reel for all my 1/2 day to 1.5 day trips out of Los Angeles paired with a Seeker inshore rod. Liked it so much I now have a Fathom 25N and 30 in my arsenal.
Pros:
- Great Drag - Great Casting - Great Price

Great reel, but...

It is a very good reel, except for the drag lever does not work right all the time. you must return the spool before you can engage the drag lever. Spoke to Peen customer support and they said that it is know problem. I do not appreciate that it is a known problem and no solution yet.

Versatile saltwater reel
December 6, 2013
The Penn Fathom FTH15 non level wind is lightweight, well designed and is a all around versatile reel. I used it for live linning, casting and I also trolled with it. The star drag system was easy to adjust even while fighting a nice size striper. One of the stripers I caught charged directly towards me but I was able to keep the line taught with the 6.0 1 ratio.
Pros:
Lightweight, solid feel, castability, easy to use drag system and versatile.
Cons:
The silent back ratchet ( noise maker) button is too small. Its hard to stop the ratcheting sound while fighting a large fish.
