The Penn Fathom LD is a modern compact lever drag boat reel which is light in weight but heavy in performance. The heart of any lever drag reel is the drag itself and Penn have fitted the Fathom LD with their Dura Drag system. Dura Drag contains a special Phenolic bonding agent that prevents the premature breakdown of the carbon fibre drag material whilst also providing a barrier to water. The result is a smooth and powerful drag which applies controlled pressure throughout the fight with fear of losing the fish through a jerky drag.
To match the drag the Fathom LD has a strong full metal body and sideplates and stainless steel main and pinion gears.
The 25LD features a narrow spool making it ideal for fishing with braid. It makes a really nice general downtide reel but is equally at home fishing on the drift with lures or for Norway style jigging.
