PENN® Fathom® Lever Drag 2 Speed is rated out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dand from This reel punishes fish. I bought this reel on the advice of the salesman at half hitch. I couldn't be more pleased. Got into some decent fish and this reel performed. The low speed setting crushes big grouper. I also like the low profile matte finish. A true "sleeper".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rum dumb from Great 2 speed!! This reel is an outstanding value for the performance you get out of it. I use the 30 on my halibut set up with 80lb test braid. Nice balance when winching up the barn doors off the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by swflshark from powerful awesome reel I boughy this reel for shark fishing and i have to admit i was very impressed. I do wish i had gotten the 60 for the line capacity since i am lbsf however this smaller reel has performed phenomenally. I have landed quite a few 6 ft bulls on it and the drag is silky smooth. I loaded mine with 80lb braid and a 30 ft of 130lb shock leader and put it on a star standup. cant say enough of how impressed i am with this reel. Small, light,smooth,and powerful. Love thinking about getting the 60ld2 for the additional line capacity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fishforfun from Great drag but what makes it a winner - the handle Bought for the 2015 Yellowtail season in April. Horsed in well over 20 yellowtail, and 1 white seabass, all in the 20-30lb range. One of the smoothest drags around, 2 speed helps in bringing the fish in quickly. The handle is a dream, compared to others, fits the hand beautifully. Returned back this season to Penn this because of this reel. This will be my go to reel for the next couple of years. Gave one to my son and a friend for our next buddy trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Capt Vern from Penn Fathom Reel This is a great reel that my wife uses for our offshore snapper trips. It handles so well and is small enough to fit her hands. Penn always makes such a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CongaJones from A Top-Notch Line Of Reels At Great Prices! I have bought a number of these reels, and in my mind they can't be beat in their price range. Penn has a real winner on their hands in these Fathom 2-speeds! I purchased these models, all for very specific purposes: FTH25NLD2 (2) - For lighter-weight jigging FTH30LD2 (4) - For live-bait and light trolling FTH40NLD2 (4) - 2 for heavy-duty jigging, 2 for 'grouper-grabbers' (w/100 lb braid) FTH60LD2 (3) - For heavier-duty trolling I checked the specs over carefully and compared them to their very similar Torque Series 'cousins', and they are virtually identical except for the fact that the Torque's are 100% machined, rather than cold-forged and machine trimmed, the Torque's have more BB's (one of them for the infinite anti-reverse, I believe) and --of course-- the Torque's are gold anodized rather than black. But for the price difference (the Fathoms are ~60% of the cost of the Torque's) I can definitely live with all of that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by brookst45 from best reel for the money out there Purchased a fathom 2 speed for this years crazy offshore action in Southern California and it was awesome. Will be purchasing more here soon for all my offshore and nearshore needs. A smaller star drag fathom is first on my list for throwing live bait and small jigs.
