    Penn Fathom 40 H Star Drag

    This new reel from Penn features a smooth drag, and lightning fast retrieve. The click through star drag is easy to adjust. The ergonomic design of  this reel makes it easy to cast. In addition, the non-fixed spindle design of the Penn Fathom 40 H Star Drag lacks the erratic drag characteristics of traditional reels where the spindle is fixed. The unique spindle pinion gear design allows for longer casting distances.

    The Penn Fathom 40 H Star Drag has the necessary line capacities needed for both dead bait, and live bait kite fishing applications.

    20 LB Test Monofilament - 520 YDS

    Penn Fathom 40 H Star Drag

    Penn's new Fathom Series conventional star drag reels are absolutely fantastic. I had the opportunity to fish the 40 FTH recently and I was very impressed with the reels performance, smooth drag, and lightning fast retrieve.

    This reel is really easy to cast. The free spool is very smooth, and casting distance is excellent. I pitched some nice sized goggle eyes while setting up flat lines, and was very impressed with the smoothness of the casting, and the distances achieved. We all know how gogs like to "gather" once deployed. The casting distances achieved facilitates the separation of the baits during the deployment process. In addition, this reel's high speed retrieve allows quick pick up of slack when fishing the kites, allowing the angler to come tight quickly and facilitates the setting of the hook. 

    The star drag is a click through drag, which is easy to adjust. The ergonomic design allows for easy  adjustment of the drag while fighting the fish. The drag engagement lever is perfectly positioned for easy adjustment, and the reel has a very strong loud clicker.

    Overall this is a very sharp looking reel, that is big on performance and features. The line capacities are ideal for all types of live or dead bait applications. I highly recommend this reel to my customers who prefer a light weight, high speed, star drag reel.This reel goes very well with our Sceptre Stealth 7 FT Live Bait Kingfish and Sailfish Tournament Series Fishing Rods.
