Ok so I was prowling through Gander Mt. today and saw a Quantum Tour rod on the sale rack. It was marked at 19.99 Of course i bought it. I cant figure out what the heck it is though. It says “Quantum Tour Pro IM7” and a tag that says PT on one of the eyes. I tried searching for it and cant figure out what it is. I tried searching the model # on it and got nothing. The model number is GMB701MC. Anyone know what this is and how much it retails for?
I believe that rod was a part of a combo package and was made for Gander Mountain. The Gander Mountain in Novi, Mi has this rod but like I said only packaged with a Quantum Reel. I want to say the package sold for around $80 but not sure on that didn’t pay much attention. You wont find anything about this rod or combo on the Quantum wed site you will have to find the specs on Gander Mountians.
Its not the same rod and the Quantum tour editon Pt that Quantum has on their site really I wouldn’t even put it in the same catagory as the old tour edition from a few years ago. Not saying its a bad rod but really not the same quality to me.
Quantum puts out rods for a few different retailers the KVD signature stuff is only at bass pro and you can only get info for them from bass pro, dicks has something similar with a Shaw Grigsby line of products so I would imagine that the first two letters of your model number say it all GM= Gander Mountain not that any of it is bad just not mainstream
Definately not a Quantum Pt rod then. The rods label just reads Quantum TOUR E.D.I.T.I.O.N. PT. No metion of IM7 HSX65 Blank. The blank material is HSX62 high strain modulus graphite. Still a very good rod just a package deal like I said before.
