1) Developing a brand new design
2) Re-introducing an older proven existing design.
Following some considerations and consultations with the original manufacturer we decided to re-introduce Penn’s legendary Fathom-Master design.
Fathom-Master is the best and most respected manual downrigger in the world. It has earned its respect for its durability, heavy duty construction and ease of operation. Troll-Master has also committed to support and service older Penn Downriggers that are being used by thousands of anglers today.
We estimate that the new downriggers will be available in late 2015.
