New for 2019, the Penn Fathom II Level Wind reels make a number of improvements on the previous generation, which itself was well received as one of the most durable Star-drag boat reels.
Full metal body and side plates give strength and coupled with the stainless steel gearing and aluminium spool give you the power needed to play and land large fish. The levelwind system has been improved and reinforced. Penn's HT100 star drag system gives a smooth and consistent drag to help play fish. Another addition in the Fathom II is Penn's Fast Gear Access Sideplate which with the removal of just four screws allows anglers access to the entire gear box without worrying about losing springs or other small parts making home maintenance a much easier task.
The FTHII15LW has a narrow spool and makes a really nice reel for drifting over the wrecks or general inshore bottom fishing. The double paddle handle is particularly nice for the constant winding involved in fishing lures but if preferred a traditional power handle is also supplied
