From its stylish oversized 90mm carbon fiber handle featuring large and comfortable cork rubber handles, to its mirror finish side covers and metallic finish aluminum frame, Vapor projects rich sportiness.

PT Technology

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.

A precision stainless steel clutch bearing is designed to withstand bone jarring hooksets without any backward handle movement.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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 convenient button located under the reel allows you to rotate and remove the side cover for spool access and maintenance.

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.

A 90mm power handle is constructed of multiple layers of carbon fiber for an incredibly stiff and strong handle to whip the biggest fish in the lake, and it looks pretty cool too.

Reviews
Vapor™ PT is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vapor Review after 10 months of heavy use I've had my vapor baitcasters for 10 months now. I use them 3-4 times per week and put them through absolute heck. The reel is light but has plenty of power to horse the big girls around. The cork handles are durable and are very comfortable in day to day use. I use braid on most of them and lock the drag all the way down. I've yet to have the drag slip and the spool releases line with very little effort. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for a durable and high performing reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth This reel has exceeded what I thought I purchased. It is extremely smooth, casts great and handles a lot of line. I have used this reel weekly and the handles look the same as they did when I purchased it. Awesome product for the small price tag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quantum Vapor I just received 2 of the Vapors. 1 in 6:3:1 and one in 7:1. These are a very smooth reel! The big cork handles are nice. I have them spooled up with 14 lb FC and I get a lot of distance on my casts! I will have to get a couple more of these for sure!

What rod should i pair this up with? Im more of a pond fisherman and im looking for more of an all around usage for some days when i hit the lake on the boah and if i want to fish the ponds

Asked by: Evankvd16
We would recommend a 7’ M rod to match with the Vapor reel. The Prism series is a great choice.
