- Technology & Features
One-piece Aluminum Frame
A rigid, lightweight one-piece aluminum frame resists any torque from big fish. CNC machining of critical mounting locations for gears and bearings keep the gear train in perfect alignment throughout the life of the reel.
A precision stainless steel clutch bearing is designed to withstand bone jarring hooksets without any backward spool movement.
Bayonet Side Cover
A convenient button located under the reel allows you to rotate and remove the side cover for spool access and maintenance.
Hot Sauce Lubrication
Every PT reel comes from the factory with our proprietary PT Hot Sauce lubricants. Its formulated specifically for fishing reel applications to lower friction and increase the longevity of each reel.
Micro-Adjust ACS 3.0
Quantum’s patented Adjustable Centrifugal System allows you to dial in the exact amount of braking force without removing the side cover that’s required on other reels. This allows you to make fine adjustments quickly as conditions change.
PT Gear Design
PT Gears are designed by our proprietary CAD program and manufactured to precise tolerances to yield world class smoothness. Durable high strength materials are used so your reel will handle heavy use for years to come without compromise.
PT Speed Bearings
PT Bearings are built to our exact design standards of performance specifications. We’ve tested hundreds of bearings in our Q Lab to determine the exact bearing specifications that can stand up to the abuse and stress from the most demanding anglers.
Multiple anodize, primer, and finish coatings create a sealed barrier of saltwater protection to ward off the effects of Mother Ocean.
Zero Friction Design
The pinion gear is held exactly in place by two ball bearings so there is no contact with the spool shaft during casting, thus eliminating any friction. With a properly adjusted ACS system, casts are freakishly long.
PT Anti-Corrosion Bearings
We tested dozens of different bearing combinations in our Q Lab saltwater torture chamber before we found the perfect combination of materials and lubrication to withstand the harsh effects of Mother Ocean. Our PT AC bearings will resist rust and salt buildup to keep your reel running smooth even in the harshest saltwater conditions.
Ceramic Carbon Drag System
Our patented multi drag disk design combines carbon and ceramic washers to perfectly balance smoothness with power. The carbon washers have the job of providing stopping power and good drag lockdown while the ceramic washers provide drag consistency and smoothness.

Continuous Anti-Reverse™ clutch
Our anti-reverse systems are designed and tested in the Q-lab to deliver a lifetime of instant hook sets.
