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.

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
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

This is a very powerful and smooth reel. I did have a problem with anti reverse but quantum was very good about repairs. I do like this reel a lot and I highly recommend it!

Hello I'm looking to pair a 12 ft. surf rod for casting for sharks off the beach. The eyes need to not be small because I need to be able to cast a 80lb mono top shot through them. I have around 200 to spend. I have a cabo 120 spinning reel to pair with it. You got any recommendations on a rod that people use for this application. It needs to throw a minimal 8oz. Thank you.
Casting an 80 lb topshot will be difficult given the size of the knot at your leader connection. I would recommend downsizing the weight of the topshot if you would be comfortable doing so. Twelve foot rods in that price range that have larger guides are the Tsunami Airwave and Trophy series as well as the Tica TC2.

what is the physical difference in size between the 60 and 80 size reels, are they the same apart from the spool? thanks
The body of the reels is the same size. The different part is the spool, and the rotor are both bigger with the 80 size.

Whats the difference between the Cabo 60 series PTSD's and the PTSE's
Hello John. The PTSE model is the newer replacement for the older PTSD which is no longer made. The only difference is in the newer models, there has been slight improvements made to the gearing for better reliability. The only other differences are purely cosmetic.
