Product Reviews

Fathom II Star Drag Reel is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Penn Fathom 2 CS review Its an amazing reel. Probably my favorite. The mag knob does rub my wrist the wrong way when Im laying line back to the spool while reeling in but I easily adjust the way I lay the line. The reel foot and clamp are a problem. They wont fit an Okuma Longitude surf rod. Planning to buy an Ocean Master surf rod to pair it with this reel as I hear itll fit the reel clamp. All in all a beast if a little reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this real to do live bait fishing for tuna off a boat in San Diego. It was awesome,smooth and i was able to cast with no backlash at all, right into the chum line. caught 7 tuna first time out. 15 with mag was great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! only issue was the clicker it was to loose and would engage when casting sometimes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PENN Fathom II Star Drag Reel, Size 12 Handle seems a little "loosy-goosy". The screws supplied for the reel clamp are about ¼" too short (for a 1" diameter Fuji reel seat). Customer service person had just the correct length screws available and said he put them in the mail about a week ago (March the 16th) -said I'd have them by end of week. I have not seen them yet. The company could supply instructions for attaching the reel clamp. Without using the 2 small "innocuous" nuts given, this job'll have you pulling out your hair -about impossible! This process is tougher with a smaller reel. It would be good if this feature (the reel clamp) were redesigned. The rating I gave is strictly for this PENN product I purchased. I have an older '15' (not a "II") for the big (13') surf rod and it works great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Surf Casting Reel I got the fathom2 15 to use while surf fishing and so far like it a lot. Jaw breaking drag, big handle knob, clicker sound, light weight and looks good Mag brake reduces the learning curve for those new to Casting conventional reels. Great reel for those who surf fish

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little monster I recently purchased a Fathom 2 size 15 reel. The reel is being used for striped bass fishing and the fishing dont have a chance.. This machine casts better then the acurrate tern and is smooth. Penn is making some really nice gear. highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid reel Solid built all around reel that can put any inshore fish in th eboat quickly
Date published: 2019-10-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice fit, looking for the 525 mag upgrade reel I hope this reel will replace my collection of 525 mag reels. so far it doesn't cast as far but some tuning and hybrid bearings I hope to get close. the only complaint is the width of the reel, its a bit harder to pull in heavy fish or a load of seaweed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Penn fathom II 15 Had used this a few times now. Excellent casting and distance will get better after some dailing it in.
