Quantam Accurist

Recommended Posts

I just picked up the 6:1 model (AC500pt)  at Cabelas half price for $60.  The salesman said it was a great reel (of course).

Cabelas reviews mostly got 5 stars except for those who got defective models.

What do you think?

I will be using it for cranks, jerks and texas rigged stuff

The accurist is a great reel.  I have the 7.0:1 burner version, and i've tested it out on the lake a few times, and it's been treating me well.  not sure yet about its durability, but seeing how it's a quantum (i've been using quantums for a while) it should be of high quality.

Biased (shimano) opinions will now appear after me...  ::)

It sounded like a great reel in the review on TackleTour also but they didn't have any lefty AC501PT's left so had to pass on the deal.

I purchased an Accurist when they first came out about eight or nine years ago I guess.  It held up well for me considering all the junk I put that thing through as a teenager, but it still works today.  The only complaint I have with them is they are not very smooth with casting or reeling, but they will launch a bait a long ways.  For $60 :), you cant really complain, I would have bought it too!! ;D

I also have one from that time, the CX 401, paint is damaged but functionally a 10/10

AC400's, (1) AC401, AC500's, (1) 501 and a 500PT from that era! All still running good! Yeah, the paint is chipped here and there but looks aren't as important to me as functionality is!
