The Penn Fathom 2-speed reel is the equivalent of the Shimano Talica II reel and both of these reels are great for large and small tuna…from Blackfin to Yellowfin and up to the mighty Bluefin.
Penn makes fantastic fishing tackle and the Fathom is no exception. It’s line capacity for the largest model (FTH60LDHS) is 735 yards of 100 lb braid. The Maximum drag force is 40 lbs which works very well with large tuna. 40 lbs of drag will wear out a large tuna (300+ lbs) in 20-30 minutes. The Fathom is available in both Star Drag and Lever Drag models. I prefer the lever drag. It’s easier to adjust when stressed with a large tuna on the line.
