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. Each drag washer is pretreated with a special compound developed by PENN engineers to ensure smooth drag performance.
  • Full Metal Body and sideplates
  • Forged and machined aluminum spool
  • Stainless steel main and pinion gear
  • Dura-Drag washers virtually eliminate hesitation,even under extreme drag settings
  • 5 shielded stainless steel ball bearings
  • Line Capacity Rings

Wahoo killer!
This may be the best reel for wahoo fishing if you're throwing bombs or jigs, very high speed gear ratio and enough drag to stop wahoo in their tracks.

Great looking reel and awesome drag for the price
i mean a good looking $249 reel that is all metal and has 40 lbs of drag, sign me up any day of the week for that. Penn has rebounded. American made again now, and has seemingly redesigned and sealed the drags on these new ones which is great.

Great bottom and light trolling reel
Great all around reel for bottom fishing and light trolling. Paired it with a 5'6 Ugly Stick Tiger Elite Jigging rod and its the most comfortable setup on the boat.

Quick retrieve
Great high speed retrieve. Used it for smoker kings and was able to keep ahead when one came speeding to the boat. Kept the line tight and was a good thing, hook fell out when I gafted him and threw him in the boat.
ProsHigh speed, strong drag, easy to set due to lever drag

Awesome
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
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.

What kind of fishing is it designed for like is it good for trolling, jigging, casting.....tuna, marlin, wahoos I fished cape cod and cape Hatteras

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

MOJO BALLIN
Thu, 13 Dec 2018
It took awhile to catch on up north, but southern anglers in the Chesapeake Bay area were onto the striped bass technique of Mojo balling, (a derivative of Parachute jigging), years before the madness trickled up into the New Jersey and New York... Read More
