Strength in numbers
Advanced computer analysis helps us eliminate excess weight in a reel’s frame (like the Exo PT shown here) without sacrificing strength or responsiveness.
Right from the start
3D computer-aided design (CAD) allows us to engineer components to precise tolerances from the beginning of the process for smoother, more durable reels.
Gear endurance test
In the Quantum test lab, we can simulate years’ worth of wear on a reel in a few weeks. This test makes sure our super hard proprietary PT gears provide smooth cranking power fish after fish.
Bail trip test
Think about how many times you open and close the bail on a spinning reel. To make sure our titanium bail systems provide unbreakable performance, the bail on every new reel design gets tripped thousands of times by robots. Very uncompromising robots.
Drag system test
When a big fish makes a break for it, you need to be confident in your drag system. That’s why we simulate literally thousands of fish fights on our PT drag systems to ensure they stay smooth under pressure.
Rod strength test
Every new rod design gets put in this little torture chamber to flex it to the point of breaking. This exposes any weak spots in the graphite blank but also helps us dial in the perfect taper for different techniques.
We dunk our reels in saltwater for weeks on end and spray them with a briny mist until they’re caked with salt. All to make sure our SaltGuard® anti-corrosion finish can weather what the ocean dishes out.
When you’re enduring freezing temps for the chance to land a trophy, the last thing you need is your anti-reverse to seize up. So we place our reels in this environmental chamber to make sure our components and lubricants can perform well in any condition.
