New Quantum Smoke HD Heavy Duty Baitcaster Reels
The concept behind the Quantum Smoke HD Heavy Duty Baitcaster Reel for sale now, is that you get all the low profile, light weigh features but a whole lot more biff to tackle larger, more aggressive fish. The spool is now larger and the cranking handle is 5mm longer and this provides you with a few significant benefits.
Firstly, the spool capacity allows you to up the lure size and cast much further while retaining plenty of line on the spool. This is important, as the fish you will be chasing with your Quantum Smoke HD will be of a much bigger size. They are ideally suited to big Barramundi and big Murray Cod. You might fish the rivers for these predators but it is more likely you’ll be hitting the dams and impoundments.
Secondly, the extra-long cranking handle in the paddle configuration with EVA knobs, gives you plenty of leverage as you fight the more belligerent, uncooperative species, wrestling them to turn their heads. While only 5mm above standard, that actually equates to a whole lot more cranking power.
The Quantum Smoke HD Heavy Duty Baitcaster Reel can be deployed in any number of places. Sports anglers looking to go ultra-light on the blue water for species such as Queenfish and Trevally will have a ball with the new Quantum. Yes it is small for such demanding work as this, but if you had any doubts, the 25 pound of drag will make it clear, this Quantum, despite its diminutive size, is built for tackling large, aggressive fish, from both the salt and fresh. Quantum reels are taking a very strong foothold in Australia. The reason is simple, Quantum are doing it better and for a whole lot less outlay. This is a brilliant reel for the baitcaster enthusiast looking for a reel that is light and low yet strong enough to handle much bigger species.
