PENN Adds Squall and Fathom Low-Profile Models to its Legacy of Saltwater-Conquering Reels

COLUMBIA, S.C. — PENN® makes a major introduction with two new lines of low-profile reels, Squall® and Fathom®. The new low-profile models continue PENN’s long legacy of reels that are durable and dependable enough to handle the rigors of saltwater fishing but with the features of low-profile reels many anglers prefer for small-vessel inshore fishing.

“Adding low-profile reels to the battle-tested PENN lineup gives anglers greater casting accuracy for inshore and near-shore species,” said Mike Rice, Category Director for PENN. “Both lines also offer the option of high-speed gear ratios, which are available on all sizes of both the Squall and Fathom low-profile reels.”

The new PENN Fathom low-profile reels offer all the features needed to tackle the toughest inshore species with their full metal frame and crank side plate matched with a brass main gear and bearing-supported pinion, which give the reels a drivetrain with unparalleled power. The Titanium Nitride (TiN) Coated Level Wind System and the HT-100™ Carbon Fiber Drag System give the reel extra durability and ensure the Fathom delivers a smooth drag even under the heaviest loads. The 400 size models also boast a synchronized drag and level wind system.

Fathom low-profile reels are available in three sizes (200, 300 and 400) with both standard and high-speed options. Left-handed models are available in the standard gear ratio in all three sizes. The reel series has an MSRP of $249.95 to $299.95.

The new PENN Squall low-profile reels feature a machined and anodized aluminum frame, 5+1 stainless-steel ball bearing system, and machined brass gears for reliable durability throughout all parts of the reel. Squall low-profile reels also come equipped with the HT-100 Carbon Fiber Drag System, and line capacity rings on the spool for easy reference while fishing and spooling.

Squall low-profile reels are available in three sizes (200, 300 and 400) with both standard and high-speed options. Left-handed models are available with the standard gear ratio in all three sizes. The reel line has an MSRP of $149.95 to $199.95.
