Penn Fathom 25LW (Available n left hand version also which I purchased)
All Metal Frame and spool
Star Drag (No lever drags for togging)
Gear Ratio: 4:3:1 (Perfect for Black fishing)
Star Drag (Perfect for Black fishing)
30Lb Drag
20 oz
4 Bearing
This reel is a beast and will beat the toughest Tog out there. At $156, Penn Fathom 25LW is a great price for a quality reel.

Thanks Phil,
I'm looking for a good togging reel to match my custom Wreckfish rod. I noticed some Togging sharpies using them this season,

The Fathoms had a little more drag Squall 30 and all aluminum vs graphite side plates (I think. Both about the same weight. Both nice reels Skip

Been fishing a Fathom 20 LWLH and I love it. My Squall 40 LH developed cracks in the composite frame after the warranty expired. I'll be getting a Fathom 25 LWLH for a take down travel rod that I need a winch for.Great reel for the price.

Fill, would it be easy to remove the level wind on it? I tend the "thumb" the line and have reeled it into the corner before

Its better to sit in a boat and think about God, than to sit in a church and think about fishing.
