There's a reason PENN is the industry's most popular and durable saltwater fishing brand. From inshore to big game, the company's leading innovation sets records and wins tournaments. Their reels are field-tested with top anglers to ensure they're the most reliable reels on the market, and more importantly, on the water. The PENN Fathom star drag is lightweight, quick on the retrieve, and extremely castable, due to its revolutionary Live Spindle design, which 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 (capable of delivering 11.3kg of drag) will stay smooth from start to finish. The reel also features a precision-machined stainless steel pinion gear, marine-grade bronze alloy main gear, instant anti-reverse bearing with silent back up ratchet, 6.0:1 gear ratio and 6 shielded stainless steel ball bearings for smooth and efficient operation.
