The Penn Fathom Star Drag reels are tough conventional Fishing Reels
that were designed for casting baits and lures. The revolutionary Live Spindle design allows the spool to spin independently of the main shaft and pinion gear. The Live Spindle design on the Penn Fathom Star Drag also improves the retrieve of the reel because the spindle and pinion do not need to turn relative to each other during heavy loads. The Penn Fathom also features HT100 Versa-Drag and a Aluminum Frame and Sideplates making it a great reel for many different fishing situations.
