Could not resist the Launcher

Recommended Posts

Man I went into BPS in FT lauderdale tonight and was walking the isles found the 7 10 launcher and then the energy power model. Tried to walk away tried to even drag my self out of the store. I then bought it turned around almost returned it but I kept it. Spooled it all up with some XPS floro and may try some casts tonight just to see how it goes.

Could not help myself either from getting a couple of red eyes and series 4s cranks. Man i can not wait to get this out on the boat

My first impression with the Quantum reels was that they felt 'tighter', or had tighter tolerances than their predecessor.  They seem to be a significant improvement over the blue Tour Edition PT that I ordered two of when they went on sale for $129 (I sold them soon after).  The KVD cranking rods should do their job well...it is the light/fast/sensitive blanks that are more competitive in the rod market.  I definitely dig my PT Superlite rods; the original Quantum Tour Edition rods were my first 'high end' rods back in '91.  That was the birth of the HSX blank that Lamiglas rolled for them.  Sorry...had a bit of nastagia.  Anyway...give us a review of the rods; China can be crappy or great....it varies quite a bit.

You didn't like the Blue Quatum Tour PT reel?  As in last years model.

Quantum rods are among the most underrated rods on this forum IMO.

I've got a 6' Tour spinning rod I use for skipping docks and love it.  I've also sold a few PT edition baitcasting rods over the past few years.  The rods have a really nice feel to them and are very light.

Yes this is the kvd rod. I put the new energy pt power model on it.  Igot out with it in the dark last night at my parents pond its long I can throw clearly 30 yards past my other cranking set up. The reel is very smooth and balances well on the rod. I managed to catch two fish on it it has plenty of power to move a fish. The length of the rod took some time to adjust to you can clearly move a lot of line. I will post a more detailed review when I can use it for a bit
