    the fathom is the only star drag under $300 that has more than just a single dog and ARB. The first gen had 2 dogs and the ARB, the 2nd gen (current model) has 3 dogs and an ARB. Also have the live spindle and a cast control. Lots of value.

    I went with the 25nsd
    I've always been a Shimano guy but I'm impressed with the Fathom lineup and heard nothing but good reviews now it's time to sling a jig and hook up for the true test 😎

    I liked everything I read about the Fathom 25 and just put one on my 10 Ulua that had a 2 speed Avet on it. I hated the fathom for casting and put the Avet back on it. I turned my fathom into my 40 baitstick reel instead. The Avet had the MC and when going back and forth from surface iron to stick bait and snipers I just got to used to the mag control that the fathom doesn't offer.

    the fathoms mag control is your thumb.
