Quantum Smoke PT Spinning Reels
Light weight but strong.
So far this has been an excellent reel. Not as much line overrun with braid as the heavy bail reels I have been using. The action is smooth and power is good on larger fish.

Smooth and light
Reel is used primarily for drop shot. Reel is light weight and smooth. Only thing keepin me from giving 5 stars is the reel is a little tight to wind.

I have used this reel in salt water using braid for 6 weeks and it is a great reel. No wind knots and casts like a dream. Trout redfish and whatever, the drag handles all of them. Very light so you can cast all day.

I have used this reel in salt water for one month and caught trout, reds and others. Great drag and smooth as silk. Had problem with wind knots with other reel but none with this reel. Works great with braid. Will buy another.

Good Reel, but not great
Love - the drag; silky smooth, strong and percise adjustment - design - light wieght Like - overall smoothness - matte black finish - handle design Dislikes - lack of anti reverse switch - no spare spool - cost ( as good or better reels are available from other manuf. at same or cheaper price) Additional Received the reel shipped from online purchase. After filling with braid found the bail broken. Returned the reel at a local Dick's who replaced it. Excellent customer service. Have used the reel for about 3 weeks; caught 4 bass to date with no issues. I am overall happy and satisfyed with this purchase.

Purchased a Shimano Sahara 2500FD and after only a handful of uses, the line (8lb mono) began wearing a deep, pronounced groove into the bail arm. Needless to say I returned it immediately. Decided to step it up a notch and purchase a reel that was a bit more expensive. Enter the Quantum Smoke PT 25. This reel is extremely solid, yet super light. No shoddy plastic materials on this sucker. It has performed flawlessly under rough, demanding conditions. I have it spooled with 20lb power pro braid on a 6'6" Medium fast Tec-Spec rod (great deal) and it is my go-to setup. If you're thinking of buying one of these - do it now. You won't be disappointed. Not to mention the FREE Quantum Tournament Jersey with purchase.

Great product and great price
Quantum nailed it with the smoke spinning reel. Its as smooth as my Shimano yet less the cost. Super light, super sensitive and super smooth.
