  • (1888PressRelease) November 01, 2011 - Freeport, New York - The new Penn Fathom Star Drag Reel Series has been introduced by Penn Fishing Tackle for the 2012 model year and builds on the impressive Penn Fathom Level Wind Reel Series introduced last year. 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 plus 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 Star Drag also features the HT100 Versa-Drag System that allows you to rearrange the drag washers for a wide range of drag settings without any additional parts. Arrange the Versa-Drag in the maximum drag setting which is an amazing 25lbs and you are ready to fish heavy braided lines for big game fish. Arrange the Versa-Drag in the minimum drag arrangement and you can fish light line knowing that the drag will only increase slightly as you turn the star drag on the Fathom. Now take the powerful drag system on the Penn Fathom Star Drag along with its Live Spindle System and add a fast but powerful 6.0:1 gear ratio - Speed, Power, Smoothness and Cast ability in a lightweight package. The Penn Fathom Star Drag also features an Aluminum Frame and Sideplates so everything stays in perfect alignment during the most strenuous battles plus is finished in a semi-gloss black anodizing for beauty and added protection from corrosion. The Penn Fathom Star Drag is also designed to stay in top fighting performance for many years with its 5 Stainless Steel Ball Bearings, Stainless Steel Pinion Gear and Bronze Main Gear plus has a tough Instant Anti-Reverse with silent ratchet backups. If you are looking for a reel that can do a little of everything, whether it is casting, jigging or bait fishing, the Penn Fathom Star Drag will perform perfectly.

    The Penn Fathom Star Drag is available in five sizes from the FTH12 with a 260 yard capacity of 12lb monofilament to the FTH40 which can hold over 500 yards of 80lb braided line.
