Penn Fathom FTN25N - R2250.00

Brand New

Stock Item 

About The Reel
Brand New Shop Stocked Reel. Never been used. Under Full Manufacturing Guarantee.
Available On Line or in Dolphin Tackle Shop.

The PENN Fathom star drag is lightweight, quick on the retrieve, and extremely castable due to its revolutionary Live Spindle design. The revolutionary Live Spindle design makes the Fathom SD one of the longest casting reels on the market. A Full Metal Body and sideplate keep precise gear alignment under heavy loads, and the powerful HT-100™ drag system will stay smooth from start to finish.
The Fathom Star Drag Reel features the Live Spindle design, which 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.

Paired this reel with a heavy action 7ft Ugly Stik Tiger Lite rod and 50 lb test Spiderwire braid. Landed a 25 pound Bull Red off the pier at Gulf State Park that didn't really test the rod or reel. Next day I hooked up an approximately six foot, 130 pound bull shark that put the rig and me to the test. I broke a sweat but the rod and reel handled the shark easily. Had to max out the drag and really dig in with the rod to turn him when he ran for the pier. The shark pulled well over a hundred yards of line at fairly high drag settings and another forty or fifty yards at max drag when he got spooked at the pier and made another run. Got the shark to the pier for pictures and cut him loose in about ten minutes. The drag was smooth as silk no matter what pressure was put on it. Impressive reel and one of the best reels on the market in that price range IMO. I plan on putting this rod and reel to some heavy use this year. We'll see if they hold up long term.

This thing casts so well! The free spool is amazing. I'll be using this in Baja to cast surface irons and jigs so I went out and practiced at the river and this reel does not disappoint. It's very rugged, not as sleek as some of the nicer reels on the market such as the Avet and Truth reels, but it feels solid in your hand and it outcasts those reels easily. Definitely worth having in your toolbox if you're throwing irons and heavy jigs at large game fish.
