- 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 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.
- CNC Machined Aluminum Frame, Side Cover and Front Support.
Quantum PT baitcast reels feature a solid, one-piece aluminum frame, along with aluminum side covers and front support, designed to provide a solid foundation for the PT drive train. The one-piece design also means less wear and tear on the moving components for less maintenance.
- ACSII Externally Adjustable Centrifugal Braking.
Quantum's exlusive ACS system is now the cast control standard because it's the most accurate braking system ever designed for baitcast reels. The external dial allows you to adjust the centrifugal brakes to perfect match your fishing situation, without having to disassemble the reel.
- Ceramic Drag System.
Quantum PT baitcast reels feature ceramic drag systems. The special ceramic coatings give Quantum drags more consistency and also dissipate heat much more quickly than traditional drag systems. This reduction in heat translates to better wear and less maintenance.
- Dual PT-bearing Continuous Anti-Reverse.
Quantum PT baitcast reels feature a solid continuous anti-reverse supported by two PT bearings. The PT Continuous Anti-Reverse provides a fail-proof, rock-solid hookset with absolutely zero backplay.
- Super Free Spool Pinion Design.
Quantum PT baitcast reels feature Super Free Spool pinion design that allows the spool to ''float'' on the drive train. This design creates less friction and also contributes to the ultimate smoothness of the reel's performance.
- Easy-Access Lube Port.
Quantum PT baitcast reels feature Quantum's exclusive lubrication port offering easy access to the gearing for the purpose of maintaining proper lubrication to insure smooth performance.
- Light-Weight Aluminum Handle.
