Excellent reel catch anything
February 5, 2016
This is a fantastic reel, really top of it's class. I've used shimano, penn ssv, and now PT Smoke 30. Shimano was nice, afraid to get it exposed, but a fish catcher. Penn SSV love it, tough, but heavy as an anchor.ThebQuantum PT smoke 30 like an extension of my arm and hand. I can fish this with a Star Stella Lite all day, yes all day. I fish in-shore and beach with the Quantum PT30 Smoke, super great feel and awesome drag. I feel everything with this reel rod 8' set up. The lightest tap echos or resonates to my wrist ,then "snap" fish on. Great reel. I've caught some large drum, pogies, Crevils and shark on this reel with no problem. Way lighter then the Penn SSV,.. Seems tougher then the Shimano I did use. QUANTUM hit a home run with the PT Smoke.
ProsQuality Build. Fantastic weight distribution. Tough as an SSV. Can be used all day and not feel you need to be adjusted at the Chiropractor. The drag is as smooth as a baby's butt. Holds off the salty water very well. It looks great for when I not catching fish, I look like I know what I'm doing.
ConsHandle set screw backed off, lost it. Quantum/ Zebco was fast at sending me the part and a note instructing me to place a drop of blue Lock Time on the threads. Great Customer Service.

This reel is light yet strong enough to handle upper class fish.

This reel was great at first and had no problems until about a month later. I had 10lb super slick on the reel and got a couple wind knots which is expected but to a certain number. After the fourth wind knot I started to get concerned and a littl low on line. Then I got a fifth which brought me down to my backing and I had to respool with what I had left of the braid. The wind knots still continued until that spool was empty. Then I bought regular braid and it helped a little but the knots continued. Then after a while the reel started to squeak when using it. I am very meticulous about rinsing my reels after using them and I greased everything and put synthetic oil in every crease. Then I reeled it for 10 minutes but it never got worked out. I have several other penn reels that I've had for years and they remain in perfect condition and have never had that many wind knots. I plan on returning this and going for the daiwa ballistic who has a reputation for saltwater unlike quantum. The one star is being generous and I would never recommend this reel to anyone

tough little reel

excellent option for the budget conscious, it's more than capable of handling most inshore applications, and certainly more than equal to some of the offshore needs

from sacramento, ca asked:

can the pinion gear from a cabo replace the pinion gear in this model of the smoke reel
The pinions gears are not interchangeable. Because they are different models they are built a little differently so the gears are slightly different from each other and will not fit in different model reels. If you need a new pinion gear for a Smoke series reel you can call Quantum at 800-588-9030 and talk to their parts and service department.
