- 5 or 7 Polymer Stainless Hybrid PT Bearings.
Quantum PT engineers have developed the highest performing bearings in the industry using technologies originally developed for large turbine aircraft engines. In order to create the smoothest reels found anywhere, Quantum's engineers designed a hybrid bearing utilizing nitrogen-injected stainless steel, combined with special polymers that shield the bearings to reduce friction and noise, and provide a carrier which protects each bearing from the elements.
- Saltgard 6-Layer Corrosion Protection Finish.
Working with marine experts, Quantum exclusive Saltgard 6-layer finish protects with a dense molecular barrier on the aluminum, followed by two separate corrosion inhibiors, primer paint, a base coat and finished with a clear coat for the ultimate protection from the harsh saltwater environment. Saltgard is available on all Quantum PT saltwater products.
- TiMAG Salt Titanium Bail with Magnetic Trip.
Quantum's exclusive TiMAG system features a flexible nickel-titanium bail wire that bends, but won't break, and a magnetic bail trip that replaces traditional springs with strong magnets that will never fail.
- MAGLOK Continuous Anti-Reverse.
Quantum's exclusive MAGLOK is the industry's only magnetic roller clutch. A strong magnetic ring replaces traditional springs for quicker engagement and better corrosion resistance. The integral design, combined with the industry's largest rollers, can withstand 2 times the load without deflection, and provide better cold weather performance than standard roller bearings.
- Stacked Ceramic Front-Adjustable Drag System.
Quantum PT spinning reels feature a stacked ceramic drag system designed to perform extremely well under pressure. These ceramic materials reduce drag fatigue by virtually eliminating the heat build-up from long fish runs.
- Improved LMS Line Management System.
Quantum's exclusive LMS Line Management System, available on every Quantum PT spinning reel, is re-designed for 2009 to allow your line to be directed to the line roller even more smoothly upon retrieve.
- Long Stroke Designed Aluminum Spool.
Quantum PT Long Stroke spools give you the ability to cast greater distances, with greater accuracy. Their lightweight construction and special spool lip design means line will flow freer from the spool.
- Solid one-piece aluminum body and side plate.
- Light-Weight Machined Aluminum Collapsible Crank Handle.
- Extra-Hard PT Gears.
