Nope, not describing a refreshing beer but rather the TH50 reel from Quantum. Everything looks good, is tight, and looks ready to fish. Though not technically marked as a saltwater reel, it doesn't appear any less durable than a Penn Fierce or Penn Pursuit. So, my plan is to keep it coated with WD40 and will mist it after using in saltwater. This reel is smooth, cannot feel any resistance when reeling. I am pleased, it's my first venture into the Zebco/Quantum family of reels. Holds a bunch of line, and if you're running braid, the band on the reel eliminates the need for a backer. The handle grip is not oversized like you would see on traditional saltwater reels, but if that's the only thing I need to overlook then I'm ok. The price is hard to beat also, at $19.95 if the thing craps out, it's not a huge investment. I think freshwater catfishing, inshore for drum, striper and sheepshead, to light surf that this reel will be find in all the various applications. With 14 lbs of drag, you may be fighting bigger fish longer, but the oiled felt drag should do the job. Get one before they're doesn't appear that the Throttle II has a 5-series. So this may be a good chance to purchase $60 quality at a discount with advanced features, capable line capacity, and light weight for this class of reel. This is not a Stella or a Torque, but if you're on a budget and you need to sneak an extra reel without the wife noticing, this is an excellent choice.
ProsLight weight, line capacity, smoothness
ConsHandle grip is small for salt applications

I've not used this reel so far. But I am looking forward to using this reel soon. The new design and materials used will allow me to use this reel for many years. I have an extensive background in mechanical devices and this far exceeds what I have purchased in the past. I will most likely recommend and I'll also be adding another one to my arsenal.

Nothing Better on the Market for the Price!
June 23, 2019
If you can find any reel as capable and well built as this on the Market, Buy It, because I should have bought 3 or 4 at this price!

There are only a few good fishing products made in China, This One of Them!

I was looking for a new reel to pair with a 7ft medium rod.  I came across the throttle on your website but was initially looking at the Penn Pursuit III.  Would you recommend this reel over the Penn Pursuit III?

1 Answer
The pursuit 3 would be a better overall reel.

April 12, 2019
can this reel be paired with 9' medium acction surf rod for stripers and blues from beach?
1 Answer
That would make a good light setup, the reel isn't overly large so it is lacking line capacity.
