So what’s in a name? Don’t let the “inshore” in Quantum inshore smoke reels fool you, the capacity of these splendid spin reels will seem them fit perfectly in the hands of the offshore angler that likes to tackle pelagic species on light gear. Trevally, and small Tuna are certainly not out of the question. Of course, reel sizes 30, 40 and 50 are designed for dominating all inshore applications. The 50 will suit the beach and rock angler looking to cast metal slices at Tailor and Mackerel. Lock the drag off and you’ll have the ideal weapon for sticking it to the brute force of the ever so stubborn Drummer. The Beach Angler will enjoy either the 40 or 50 tackling everything from Aussie Salmon on gang hooks to elbow Slapping Whiting on live worms or pipis for bait.
The 40 will also work beautifully for chasing big Flathead with Big lures. Whether land based or from your favourite vessel, record size Lizards are a likely target. For the traditionalist, live poddies drifted over a drop over will also suit the Quantum Smoke inshore fishing reels perfectly. Should you hit a wondering Jew, the 9kg of drag in the 40 will see you well armed to take the sting out of the famous Mulloway first run. If you have used braid, you will also have plenty of line on your spool, should the run prove difficult to halt.
Of course those that wish to flick lighter lures into racks and weed beds will be well served with the 30. Get all the feel of a finesse reel with the capacity to handle pretty weighty species should they take a liking to you plastic, crank or vibe. Bream, Whiting and Flathead are the target here but if the seas are slight, you might enjoy working a shore line gutter on the beach where Dart and Whiting hunt in numbers. They’re for sale no and priced to move.

Good all-rounder for heavier inshore and lighter offshore applications. Great for snapper and other reef fish, mackerel, small tuna, barramundi and mulloway. So therefore will suit a 6-7ft rod with a line rating anywhere between 6-10kg for the 40 size in particular should marry up well, for the 30 size you could scale it back a little and use a rod with a line rating of around 4-5kg. For the 50 Size you may choose to go a little heavier and choose a graphite rod with a rating of say between 8-15kg in a boat or barra style rod. When we steer away from the boat and estuaries and move into rock and beach territory a 40 or 50 size smoke inshore reel is the best choice married up to a 9ft shore spin graphite rod or a light 10-11ft beach rod preferably graphite with a rating anywhere from 4-10kgs. This is a guide only providing you some of the most common applications so feel welcome to use a rod that you see fit.
