The 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.
PENN® Fathom® Star Drag is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value out there. I have the FT 40 and love it. From 60 pound amberjack to 8 foot sharks to big mangroves, this reel handles it all. The drag preforms great at both cranked down and light if you are using a light leader. Super smooth casting. Very fast retrieve (nice if you are fishing very deep water and or jigging). While it's built light, it's super solid and doesn't flex. I've beat the heck out of it and it still acts like it did when it was brand new. I love that it retrieves 40 inches of line per crank when I'm in 200 feet of water. Looking forward to trying out the new two speed fathom for digging big grouper off the wrecks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good reel but has its limits Bought a 40LW, and 2 - 15LW models. Great reals. I have caught 6ft sharks to some slammer reef donkeys on the 15's. Decided to take the two 15's down for some heavier fishing using 5 Oz weight and cut bait. First reel on first cast lost free line mid cast. Thought it was a fluke but put the reel up. Second reel also lost free line on third cast. Both are 3 months old only used a couple times and never been in water or sand. First reel back from repair. Reel was replaced and when I called to see what happened they said it was just replaced. I wanted to wait to send the second one in. Not the same service I have for the torques I own. But none the less they have been great reels when not used for casting heavy weight. Great looks, heavy construction, and great heavy drag. Smooth reel for the money. But it has its limits, first conventional to ever fail me on casting, even against the old garcia 6500. Should have kept them for surf fishing.
