Penn Fathom Star Drag Reel
This is the Star Drag version of the popular Fathom series from Penn. If you’re a big game or sea fishing angler then you’ll be more than aware of the Penn brand name. In fact, chances are you’ll revere it – along with the 1,400 (and counting) IGFA titles it has contributed towards. This Fathom Star Drag continues Penn’s legacy and is the ideal reel when you want high powered versatile performance and extreme casting ability.
Constructed from a fully diecast aluminium frame and side plates, this reel is extremely rigid. This is essential when you’re tackling the kind of hard fighting opponents that you’ll be targeting with the Penn Fathom Star Drag, as it virtually eliminates the risk of gear torsion and twisting under extreme pressure. This not only preserves the life of your gears but it also ensures that you can access the full torque building power this reel can offer. Machine cut and marine grade, the bronze main gear precisely meshes with the stainless steel pinion gear to provide you with the kinds of tough power that you require from your reel under extreme circumstances.
Five stainless steel bearings, as well as an additional roller bearing, help preserve the life of this reel against premature wear and tear. When you’re sea fishing the main source of this wear and tear comes from corrosion caused by dried saltwater. Though rinsing your reels goes a large way to ensuring your tackle is properly maintained, these bearings offer further protection and give an increased lifespan. Not only this but these bearings ensure you experience a silk-like performance, too, for ultimate fish fighting comfort. The spool on the reel is uniquely free floating, thanks to the employment of a live spindle, which further adds to the smooth rotational performance on both the cast and the retrieve. Line capacity rings ensure you never find yourself unexpectedly out of line mid-battle and the powerful HT-100 Versa Drag system offers you versatile high performance drag when you need it the most.
