Using Reel Engine Design 2.0™ – Quantum’s new Smoke S3 series is the product of a whole new way to build a spinning reel in an all aluminum uni-body construction, which keeps all the gears and key components in precise alignment for a smoother more durable reel, versus more typical 2-part reels.
Speaking of gears, Smoke S3 reels feature an all-new asymmetric gear that is forged and machined from high-strength aluminum to allow the gears to mesh better for incredible durability and smoothness.
Tough, smooth gears are critical, but drag systems can make or break a spinning reel too, so by partnering with a university research team, Quantum CSC3™ drag is breaking new ground with the development of really tough plasma arc ceramic washers that serve as space-age defenders against heat.
Complimented by carbon fiber washers, the CSC3 drag system offers the perfect combination of smoothness with high lockdown.
Packed with Performance Tuned designs, Smoke S3’s light and tough corrosion proof C4LF™ rotor is made from a composite that is 2.6 times stronger than lesser components used to build the rotors of many inferior spinning reels so it won’t flex under a heavy fight.
Toughness continues with Quantum patented nickel titanium “memory metal” bail wire, which means it doesn’t bend like inferior bail wires do, and it’s backed by an impressive lifetime warranty.
Smoke S3 Inshore is saltwater version of Smoke S3, and features an awesome 11 bearings that are all anti-corrosion proof. Available in sizes 25, 30, 40 and 50, Smoke S3 Inshore retails for around $179, while the all purpose freshwater version is available in sizes 15, 25, 30 and 40 at a very fair $159. And all come with a 3-year warranty when you register your reel within 60 days of purchase. SEE SERIES > SEE INSHORE SERIES >
