Pros:strong, big line capacity, low profile, large thumbing area, anti-corrosion

Cons:coating nicks easily, sharp edges of frame cuts slack line. brake adjustment needs cover removed

The Bottom Line: If you want a reel for medium to medium/heavy inshore saltwater fishing, this is a good alternative to the expensive round reel baitcasters.


I was a bit ambitious and decided to learn to baitcast with this higher end casting reel. It has served me well as I was able to catch big stripers and salmon on it in brackish and saltwater in the SF Bay area.

I figured out how to cast as well with this. I've learned that it is a strong reel with a strong drag. Its low profile and non bulky. Yet it can have almost 300 yards of line at 12#. The reel works best at #14 test line and above. I've used between 14 and 20. Lures are best at 3/4oz and up. The spool open area is large so that picking birdsnests is easy, as well as thumbing the spool. In fact, to apply even more drag, I can double thumb the spool with this large opening. The 5 ball bearings is good enough.

It has only centrifugal brakes so you really have to know how to adjust your casting methods to the wind speed, the weight of your lure, your throwing motion and etc plus adjust the tension knob.

I paired it up to a Lamiglas G200 7ft medium bass rod, which is probably light for this reel but it works for my shore, inshore style. I've read of others using bigger rods for fishing off boats and kayaks for sturgeon!

The anti-rust, corrosion finish is a good feature but it seems to nick and dent easily the graphite part of the reel. The metal part is solid.

My drag seems to have gone out of whack from lots of use. It is still strong but not smooth. This probably needs to be serviced. Oh, and there doesn't seem to be alot of official Quantum local service in my area. I'd have to ship the reel if I want to get if fixed by Quantum. The removeable cover for the brake adjustment doesn't come on and off easily if not oiled or when you are out there on on the field.
