But Fathom is very reliable and sturdy reel.
As a huge fan of Penn reels, I wanted to make sure that false information wasn't being used in the very informative and trustworthy Tackle Direct product reviews.
These fathom 2 speeds so far have been bullet proof. Over 2 years of fishing them offshore and zero issues. Always rinse your gear with fresh water and keep them properly lubricated. Thx penn!
What rod and line recommendations would you have in regards to line and a rod to pair with this? Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems versatile enough to bottom fish and troll with this same set up. Is there a rod that would pair well with this to do both?
Take a look a Carnage 2 rods or OTI-FB58400A
