Multiplier reels are seen by a lot of anglers as the reel to use for big distance. Technology has advanced to make multipliers a lot easier to use and most of the higher end reels now come with a magnetic breaking system of some type which makes the chance of the dreaded birdsnest a lot less. Level wind models are still available but these tend to have a big impact on reducing distance as the the level wind can dramatically slow the reel down during the cast.
The latest addition to the ever popular Penn Mag range, the 515 Mag 4, promises to tick even more boxes in 2021 and ensure that this is the easiest to use Penn Mag reel to date. The 515 is a narrower spooled version of the classic 525 and this makes it a great reel choice for using with finer lines. The lighter and narrower spool also allows even longer casting making the 515 a perfect reel for targeting larger hard fighting fish at maximum range on clean to mixed beaches as well as uptide and light-medium down tide boat fishing applications.
Penn Fathom II FTHII12SD Mag Brake is a non levelwind high speed (6.1:1) multiplier. This model now features an adjustable magnetic braking system which allows you to quickly dial in the braking needed to suit conditions on the day. The FTHII12SD is a narrow spooled version of the popular FTH15 and has the same spool size and capacity as the Penn 515 series. This makes it a very good casting reel for all round beach use and the narrow spool lends itself to use with braid from the boat. The magnetic braking and free floating spool means that the FTHII12SD is a well-controlled distance casting reel. The one piece metal frame, metal side plates, alloy spool, strong gears and HT100 drag help give the Fathom II FTHII12SD that solid and dependable feel which you demand in a hard-working multiplier reel. The combination of strong gearing and large power handle make retrieving fish and gear a doddle. From the boat they will cover general bottom fishing, lure work, jigging and uptiding.
Penn Fathom II FTHII 15 SD Mag Brake is a non levelwind high speed (6.1:1) multiplier. This model now features an adjustable magnetic braking system which allows you to quickly dial in the braking needed to suit conditions on the day. The FTHII15SD has the same spool size and capacity as the Penn 525 series which makes it just the right size for shore fishing with lines of 15lb to 25lb The magnetic braking and free floating spool means that the FTHII15SD is a well-controlled distance casting reel. The one piece metal frame, metal side plates, alloy spool, strong gears and HT100 drag help give the Fathom II FTHII15SD that solid and dependable feel which you demand in a hard-working multiplier reel. The combination of strong gearing and large power handle make retrieving fish and gear a doddle. From the boat they will cover general bottom fishing, lure work, jigging and uptiding.
Penn Fathom II Casting Special is a high performance reel for the shore angler who is looking for a reel to cast the maximum distance whilst still having the power to handle big fish and tough conditions. The reel is based on the Fathom's proven Full Metal construction with tough 6.1:1 precision cut gearing and Penn's powerful HT100 star drag system to give you the guts and power needed to pull fish and tackle back to shore. The addition of a factory fitted 'knobby' magnetic braking system gives total cast control allowing you to obtain the perfect setting to match bait and conditions. The live spindle free floating spool houses a pair of high performance spool bearings to help tune the reel to perfection. Just set the end float to give a hint of play, dial in the magnetic braking you need and the result is long trouble free casting no matter what the weather throws at you. The compact frame and forward slanted gearbox keep the reel seated low on the rod allowing you to get a good grip on the spool when casting. When it comes to retrieving your catch the large power handle and easy to adjust star drag make short work of landing even large specimens. Penn have opted for their 'blackout' cosmetics which help to give the reel a mean and purposeful look which matches its performance.
Magnetism like you will never have seen before is at the heart of the new 7HT Mag. By creating a magnetic control system that is able to adjust itself during the cast gives you the ultimate form of brake control any angler could wish for. It is called Magnofuge.Allowing the spool to hit maximum speed at the beginning of the cast Magnofuge kicks in almost instantly. As the reel detects the centrifugal force of the spool reducing it activates minute and gradual adjustment to the magnetic resistance, but in perfect synchronicity with the speed of the spool.Straight from the box again the latest 7HT is 'cast ready' and thanks to the wide range of magnetic settings available through easy grip, CNC machined dial you can tailor the range to suit any condition.On the winding front the Mag offers a swift ratio of 5.8:1, six ball bearings of which five are CRBBs and an improved handle size and grip.
The intelligent Magnofuge system has proven itself in the hands of thousands of anglers... literally. But now, it has been refined and improved even further. Working to new tolerances of engineering pushing standards to the extreme, taking individual microns into account! The designers have even challenged the direction in which the spool is machined in order to improve its balance. Within the magnetic control selection we have dared to make the lower end more free; somewhere that only the bravest will go! Key parts of the Magnofuge system have also been changed too refining the magnetic effect on the spools deceleration. And smoothness of all the reels operation hits a new level thanks to 9BB (8CRBB). What we have achieved may only be a few split seconds of improved efficiency and smoothness but it results in a dramatic difference of the conversion of casting power into distance. Quite simply it has been Super Tuned!
