Quantum Smoke PT reel

Kevin VanDam's pro tour reel

The Quantum® Smoke® Heavy Duty PT Baitcast Reel is the lockdown, knockdown reel made to handle high-impact techniques in both fresh- and saltwater. Whether you're throwing 5-arm Alabama Rigs, dredging long-billed cranks way down deep, or launching big plugs for inshore trophies, the Smoke Heavy Duty gives you a compact, easy-handling reel with the speed, strength, and extra line capacity to take care of business. Its rigid SCR aluminum frame and sidecover incorporate a multilayer Saltgard 2.0 finish to ensure top performance in all conditions. Inside, the 7-bearing system includes a pair of Performance Tuned PT Speed Bearings plus clutch, supported by Quantum's external Infinite ACS Cast Control system, for long, accurate casts and quick, butter-smooth retrieves under load. The advanced CSC™ drag combines ceramic, stainless steel, and carbon disks for ultimate stopping power and smooth fighting ability.
