Quantum Hc2 Trigger

Recommended Posts

I bought one of these today, but the trigger does not open the bailer. Is this the way it should work? When I open the bailer by hand the trigger will act as a brake. Relatively new to spinning reels. Thanks for any help.

I hate saying this but they were junk, is this a reintroduced reel or is it an older one you bought used? If you bought this used it is broke, the trigger opens the bail and holds the line, sort of like a combination spinning reel and a spin cast reel.

Thanks for confirming what I suspected. I believe it is an older one. Got a Quantum Lite rod and the reel at a thrift store for $10. What threw me off is that some users on youtube do not even have a trigger on their spinner type...all manual. The trigger on this one will depress when the bailer is opened manually. When the bailer is closed the trigger acts like it is hitting something inside and the bailer of course doesn't flip open. Guess I will have to open it up and see.

 

Error in my initial post: When I open the bailer manually and press/pull the trigger it does NOT act like a brake.

That reel came out in the 90s and it didn't last long, but to be honest you aren't going to get anything remotely new for $10, at least anything that is worth using.

I did catch two fish on it, so spending a lot on a reel is not completely necessary. I am not familiar with spinner type so I simply wasn't sure what was proper operation for this model. I believe it was 1994. I would take it over a newer Zebco equivalent. They get cheaper and cheaper every day!
