Penn Fathom

My first saltwater casting reel was a Penn reel, it was the Penn Squidder 140L. The Squidder has been and continues to be my favorite! This reel is a no bells and whistles true workhorse that when serviced annually has lasted me for years! I’m still using Squidders that my father used to use. However, Penn discontinued making this reel a few years back which upset many a angler that used them. Many can be found on eBay, but there is no other reel like it. That is when Penn started to make a reel that was comparable yet modern by today’s standards.

 

Penn Fathom star drag is lightweight, quick on the retrieve, and extremely castable due to its revolutionary Live Spindle design. The revolutionary Live Spindle design 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 will stay smooth from start to finish.
