The PENN Fathom lever drag 2-speed series of reels are compact but loaded with big features. Featuring a full metal body, stainless steel main and pinion gear, Dura-Drag washers, and a double dog ratchet anti- reverse, you will find there is no better reel in this price range.
The Fathom LD2 comes in five sizes from the 15LD2 to the 60LD2, so no matter what you’re chasing, there is a Penn Fathom LD2 for you.
These two-speed models feature the Quick ShiftTM system for quick and easy changes with gear ratios ranging from 6.1-to-1 (retrieving 31 inches per crank) on the high setting to 2.5-to-1 (retrieving 21 inches) in the low setting.
This versatility allows the angler to muscle strong-willed tuna when needed or pick up slack when the speedy sailfish heads towards the boat. Anglers using kites will appreciate the high speed retrieve when picking up slack line after a strike.
Each lightweight reel includes a die-cast aluminum frame and sideplates plus a forged/machined aluminum spool with weights ranging from 15.1 ounces for the size 15LD to 27.3 ounces for the size 60LD2. Strong, stainless-steel main and pinion gears are corrosion resistant as are the five shielded stainless-steel bearings. The stainless-steel gear train is machined and drilled for optimum toughness as well as weight reduction.
The braid-ready spool has line capacity rings to let the angler know how much line remains on the spool during the heat of battle. Lugs keep the reel securely fastened to the angler or boat with switchable lugs available on the size 60LD2.
Spool capacities of the Fathom LD and LD2 range from 355 yards of 12-pound test monofilament or 550 yards of 20-pound test braid on the size 15, to 480 yards of 40-pound test monofilament or 995 yards of 65-pound test braid on the size 60.
