We use these for pier fishing all the time.

My 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 them every once in a while.I have a couple of Penn spinners, but it disappoints me to say they 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.

great little inshore reel
November 19, 2017
Can fish it all day, no fail, no fatigue. Caught everything from snook, Spanish mackerel,
and some offshore dolphin... got into a school, it was the next rod up and performed admirably
live baiting 10 pounders, glad it has a reasonable braid capacity, comes in handy. Used it for
small tarpon in the keys as well and jacks off the seawall...it screams drag but does not quit. Did my best
to kill it but could not. Paired with a light weight Loomis IMX and it is like fishing with a toothpick.
Great for tossing soft plastics and spoons at reds too. Goes with me in the Hewes and the Contender
Prossmooth and strong, not always the first reel I use, but when the bite is on it has not failed, add it to the mix and it performs like the bigger ones (so far) both inshore and offshore as well.
ConsKids love it and it is hard to keep them away from it

An amazing buy for the price

This reel is about the best overall reel you can use for light inshore fishing when factoring things such as price, weight, etc. I can't emphasize on how impressed I am with Quantum for making a 10 oz reel with 25 pounds of drag. This reel is also consistently smooth with exposure to salt water. Also, for a reel with a spool size that's not too big, it sure seems to cast fairly well even when paired with smaller surf rods that fit into the ''lower quality end'' of the spectrum. Ounce for ounce, this is definitely one of higher drag to size ratio reels on the market. For nearly $200, this reel is a steal.
ProsLightweight, Powerful drag, Smooth
ConsMakes an unattractive noise when used to fish heavier baits. When trying to fish in a finesse style the high speed of the reel makes it difficult.

Flawless reel
June 26, 2016
One of my favorite reels out of my collection. Extremely smooth yet extremely tough. I have used it from false albacores to 30 pound striped bass along with the St,Croix tide master . This reel can handle it all and i recomend it.

nice reel,but not for the surf and jetties.
April 2, 2016
This reel is probably more suited towards the boat guys.
Prossmooth reel,great drag,nice line ratio
Consbail arm and bail wire is not robust enough for surf and jetty fishing. Probably fine for the boat.

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.

Smoothest drag I have ever had on a reel
July 23, 2015
This reel is light, has good line capacity for fish like False Albacore and the drag is silky smooth.

If you're looking for a good all akk around fishing reel then this is a solid option. It's light enough for fresh water but strong enough for inshore fish.

Appropriately named cause this reel smokes the fish
March 7, 2015
This reel is just plain awesome. I have used mine for a full season now and absolutely love it. It is lightweight but built as strong as they come. Plenty of stripers reeled in on this bad boy along with many other species. I have it mounted on a Shimano Terez rod with 40 lb. Power pro braid. For the price you cannot go wrong with this reel. Would love to have a fleet of these on my boat.
ProsVery smooth. casts great and looks great.
ConsNo complaints here!!

Very disappointed with this reel
January 10, 2015
My experience with this reel has not at all been a positive one. With less than 200 casts on this reel, an excessive amount of play had built up between the rotor and the bail arm assembly. I'm not talking about a small amount of play, either. It was so bad you could easily feel it when opening the bail. I sent the reel back to Quantum, and they replaced it under warranty. Unfortunately, the replacement reel had the exact same problem. While a bit frustrated with the reel itself, Quantum's customer service in the handling of this issue was top notch. I informed Quantum that I no longer had any interest in the Smoke line of reels, and they agreed to exchange the Smoke50 for a Cabo50, no questions asked. While the Quantum Smoke Reel only gets a 1 star rating from me, their customer service is certainly worthy of 5 stars.
ProsIt's light in weight, and that's about it.
ConsI believe this reel is in need of a re-design, particularly at the bail arm / rotor junction. I don't think the play that developed in my reel is a matter of random defect. I honestly believe it's a design flaw. I will not purchase another one of these reels, nor would I recommend them to another angler. If you're looking for a quality saltwater reel from Quantum, get a Cabo.

In Comparison to Shimano
December 5, 2014
Historically I have been a Shimano man. I have the Sustain, Stradic and Baitrunner. This is my first time going outside the Shimano brand. Overall I am very pleased. The first thing I noticed with the reel, which is my only complaint, is the smoothness. Frankly it doesn't touch Shimano in this category and is the area Quantum needs the most work in. The second thing I noticed was the build. The reel is incredible from a stout and sturdiness perspective. I have no doubts this reel is built to last. The reel, despite being built like a tank, is still very light weight. The finally thing is the reel actually holds the amount of line it claims too. Every Shimano reel I own never held the yards it claimed, the Quantum absolutely does.
ProsWell built, strong, durable Light weight Great line capacity
ConsNot as smooth as it should be

from sacramento, ca asked:
November 1, 2015
can the pinion gear from a cabo replace the pinion gear in this model of the smoke reel
1 Answers
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.

Summer in South Florida has been rolling on without a hitch. Heat, humidity and lots of bait. Our bait run started several weeks ago with huge schools of pilchards and sardines arriving on the rock piles offshore and the inshore waters alike. These baits can... Read More
