Quantum Kinetic Pt 6:3:1 Or Skeet Reese Victory Baitcaster

Recommended Posts

Neither. Some better reels in that price range are the BPS Pro Qualifier, Shimano Citica ($100 at Gander Mtn), and Lew's Speed Spool.

Quantum! I'd even take the accurist, I have one and I love it. it throws everything from weightless plastics to heavy spinnerbaits really well and I use the flippin switch all the time. It's really nice with a right handed reel to be able to engage the reel as soon as the bait hits the water.

It's kinda funny why there is so much hate on quantum. My accurist PT is by far my favorite reel. Different strokes for different folks I guess :)

I have both the Kinetic and Accurist 501PT and both are great reels going on 3 yrs of use with no problems. I can't speak on the others but as someone said the Accurist is a great reel with a write up on TT on the regular version of the reel. They can still be had on ebay new for around $40-50 and are a better deal in my opinion at that price than some of the other reels mentioned.

If yo uhave an opportunity to try out one of the W&M Skeet Reese reels, it'll be obvious why everybody in this post tried to steer you towards something else. The ones I've handled felt worse than $35 Pinnacles, and one of them was defective right out of the box. In my opinion, they're absolute crap.

I often say don't knock the Kinetic until you tried it. I have the original first Kinetic casting reel, it was originally 120 bucks but Cabelas has the older model for 79.99, anyway it is very omparable to the Shimano Citica and I got it over the Citica because it has an aluminum handle side cover with an aluminum frame, the Citica has an aluminum frame with graphite side covers so the Kinetic is built better. I have fished both the Kinetic and the Citica and on a performance level they are almost identical, my wife had to stop me from buy 5 more of them when they went on sale, as for the W&M, I never tried one and while it may be good to beat up on because it is a value priced item I learned not to do that, you'd be surprised at the way some reels perform. Most value reels are made cheap but the Kinetic was originally a mid tier reel at over 100 dollars, that and the Citica fished side by side with a more expensive Revo S would make you wonder since the Citica and Kinetic both outperformed the S. Looking at the specs of the new kinetic it appears the only thing that changed is the color but I have mine for 3 years and it goes on every trip and performs like day 1 and if you aren't into taking your reel apart to lube, it has an external lube port so you can give it a shot of oil at the end of the season, it is a good reel and at the current price is a steal.

I was looking at the abu Garcia Revo s and the abu Garcia Orra sx. What do you think about those two. Which one do y'all think is good. If the orra is a good reel im not trying to spend the extra money for the Revo.

BPS Pro Qualifier is the best reel you can get for less than $100, IMO.

Maybe a cabelas prodigy then? I have 0 experience but some members here say they are quality reels. Maybe they could chime in.

I have a couple of the prodigy reels also which at the time I purchased mine they were made by Daiwa for cabelas and they have held up very well with no issues at all. Caught them both on sale for $70 and they can be had on ebay for about that as well.
