almost a cabbo
February 21, 2022
this is almost as smooth as my cabbo. i tested both heavily side by side and eventually bought the cabbo. the extra bearing really made a big difference. but had i neve tried the cabbo, i would have been happy with the bocca. almost everything else is the same.
  • good drag
  • light
  • not really a con, but the cabbo is more comfortable and smoother.

Beast of a reel
June 20, 2021
I absolutely love this reel.

Last year I was in one of our local bait shops and stumbled across a custom built spinning rod that was on sale so I bought it. Now having a rod with no companion reel, I started looking for reels to complete the set. I came across this Quantum on sale and bought it. Now this combination is my "go to" when I am fishing offshore (or nearshore). It is usually the first one I deploy when we get setup offshore, either on a flat line with big live bait or on a "sow" or "knocker" rig with big live bait. It has been responsible for catching the biggest fish on the boat. Red Snapper 25lbs, Smoker King Mackerel 40lbs, and Cobia 30lbs.
  • line capacity
  • smooth drag

Broke early

Great big reel with lots of drag but rivet holding handle on broke in half while just retrieving a jig, and gears were grinding loudly. Sent it back to Quantum and they said they would send me a new reel. Sent me a Cabo 80 instead. Not even close to the same size. Shoulda bought a Penn Spinfisher. Oh well.
  • Good looking, hold lots of line, lots of drag.
  • Broke quickly, poor customer service.

Powerful Spinning Reel

Reel holds the crown in build quality under 200. Brass bearing spool so no need to worry for those high priced spool bearings when you get splashed. Sealed and shielded rotor bearings to prevent contamination on those days the fish are keeping your hands wet.
  • Braid Capacity, Max Drag, Metal Body, Ball Bearings, Sealed Anti-Reverse Rotor, Easy Bail Action.
  • If at all negligent, the bail wire is unnecessarily troublesome on the roller side of the rotor when using 30 lb braid on the 40.

Top Value for universal reel

Reel light enough for Stripers and heavy enough for light saltwater use. Well balanced and feels well made. Purchased for my son so I have not used it.

Pleased with the result

I always wanted to have a reel loaded with mono and a small pencil popper on the front rack. This is the reel I wanted to try, TD made it possible.
  • Drag, line lay, metal body.
  • Don?t care for the lack of a ball bearing supported drag but, what can you expect for the money.
  • The bail wire makes me nervous because of how thin it is.

Hello, looking to pair this with a Tsunami TSTBS-J761XH Trophy Jigging Rod for boat, pier and catfishing.

Between the Quantum Boca 80, Fin-nor LT100, Daiwa BG6500 and Penn Battle II 8000 which one is the best?

1 Answer
All are good options, The BG would probably have the best durability for pier fishing and longevity to use for multiple species

Does this 80 size Boca also have the triple supported shaft (looks like it does) and forged, machined stainless steel drive gear like it's bigger brothers?

On Quantum's website they state the max drag as 30lbs, is it 45 or 30?

1 Answer

The 40 and the 50 has 40lb pounds of drag and the 80 has 45 pounds of drag 

both come with sealed drag and carbon fiber bail.

Besides the price wich is the difference between this reel and Quantum CSP80PTsE Cabo PTsE Spinning Reel? Regards, Miguel.
1 Answer
The Cabo has a stronger drag than the Boca, the Cabo's drag is 55lb where the Boca's is 45lb. Also the Cabo's bearing count is higher, 7+1 opposed to Boca's 6+1 which makes the Cabo slightly more durable and "free spinning" than the Boca.
