The Cabo PTsE Spinning Reels represent the absolute pinnacle of Quantum saltwater tackle, and is built to take on whatever tries to take you on! Cabo PT reels feature our legendary TiMAG II titanium fail-proof bail with magnetic trip, as well as 8 PT bearings and our exclusive SaltGuard II multi-layered corrosion protection finish. The new Quantum Cabo PTsE Spinning Reels have the ultra smooth drag that Cabo’s have always been known for plus can achieve up to 65 pounds of drag power. With a triple supported shaft and the only forged and machined stainless steel drive gear in the industry, you can trust it will handle more than the guy holding it can.
  • 8 PT bearings (7 + clutch)
  • Sealed Magnum CSC ceramic, stainless steel and carbon fiber drag system
  • Sealed Magnum clutch
  • TiMag II titanium fail-proof bail wire with magnetic trip
  • SaltGuard II multi-layer corrosion protection finish
  • SCR aluminum body and side cover
  • Designed specifically for saltwater use
  • Withstanding The Salt Assault: Working with corrosion experts, we developed our own multi-layer SaltGuard finish to keep PT saltwater reels looking and performing their best.
  • 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.
  • Pour On The Sauce: Quantum Hot sauce contains a special, proprietary blend of synthetic and organic additives to provide the ultimate balance in performance, protection, durability, and smoothness in both grease and oil for all fishing equipment.
  • Timag II Bail: The only spinning reels with a Nickel-Titanium bail wire that never gets bent out of shape. And unlike traditional bail springs, our magnetic bail trip will never wear out — and it's guaranteed for life.
  • Customized Bearings: Most reels use stock bearings made for other applications. Not ours. We designed our own high-grade stainless bearings to exact specs to minimize vibration and friction. Then we fit them in a special polymer cage for added sensitivity and corrosion protection.
  • Ceramics Take The Heat: PT drag systems feature ceramic washers to dissipate heat during long runs. We also use ceramics to reduce wear in our baitcast levelwind systems.
  • Unyielding Metal Construction: All PT reels begin with single-piece aluminum frames, each machined with computer-guided precision, to hold all critical components in perfect alignment. We use special high-strength grades of aluminum to yield lightweight reels that will not flex even during heavy cranking.

Powerhouse with Smooth Drag
August 19, 2019
I purchased a Cabo PTS60 for tarpon and heavy structure pier/dock fishing and it worked so well that I decided to give the PTS 120 a try for offshore bottom fishing. It has become my favorite offshore reel and I own a much more expensive conventional Accurate Daughntless 600 as well, but the stopping power and speed of retrieve with the Cabo 120 is unmatched. I highly recommend this reel.
ProsPowerful drag and fast retrieve
ConsIt's heavy

y buddy has three of them, and seeing as how i do most of my fishing from off a boat, and how if i buy another reel my girlfriend might disown me, i use his every once in a while. I have a couple of Penn spinners, but it disappoints me to say the Penns take a lot of maintenance. I have used both his cheaper model from a different store more tuned to freshwater and they have worked great.

Good reel
September 29, 2017
The Cabo is a good reel with a crazy amount of drag . The reel is relatively smooth and can hold a ton of line and the handle is really ergonomic.
ProsA lot of drag, good line capacity, relatively smooth
ConsNo place on the spool to wrap your line around. The anti reverse isn't the best.

feels good

line capacity and drag, Great! Only gripe and its a big one for me is that the bail wire radius is so big that the bail whacks my knuckles as I retrieve. It goes du du du du du du du du du du across my fingers. I have never had a reel do this. it sucks I have to grip the rod further back behind the handle. very unnatural feeling

Great real except for weak drag springs
April 6, 2017
I have had 2 of these reels and both have snapped the drag springs ( the part that makes the clicking noise). I purchased 3 springs from quantum and have already used 2. Besides that the reel is very smooth and easy to handle
ProsLight weight smooth Looks sharp
Consbad drag springs and components

Solid quality

Only a 4 star because I haven't tested it yet. As smooth as all the others in Cabo series I am sure it will work out as well. It is heavy and so far it doesn't balance as well on the rods I planned on using but it wasn't bought for all day casting so it should be fine. If you can find a nicer reel for the money or the job, buy it but I thiink you'll be searching for a long time.
ProsGreat value. Solid reel
ConsWish they made a surf series in this size

What rod size, would I match this reel up to for offshore jigging for grouper, amberjack, etc. I'll be using 80 lb braid with 100 lb fluoro leader.
1 Answers
I would recommend one of these rods... They are very strong rods that have the power to handle and control big fish. Sound great for the species you are targeting.
