Quantum Smoke

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, Im new round here but have been reading and lurking so I decided to sign up. My question is Im looking to throwing a couple new baitcasters into the line-up, I've fished the big 2 and currently still do, Just wonder what your thoughts are on the new Smokes?

Thanks in advance.

Its a nice reel with a decent feature set. I thought about adding one to my collection but opted for the Lew's Tournament Speed Spool as it was a bit cheaper and had similar features. There are so many great reels in this price range that its tough to go wrong.

I'm a big fan of Shimano but have (2) Revos and the Lew's that see duty almost every time out. I'm a leftie so I have limited options.

As far as $200 reels, the Curado 50E and the Revo STX or Winch are top shelf.

The Smoke is light and looks cool so if that's a factor... I would say its a good choice.

I've only handled one in the stores and read the reviews but being how light it is I'll be adding one to my collection very very soon.

I just got a new Quantum Smoke 5.3:1 last month. I paired it with a Duckett Micro Magic rod, making for the most lightweight combo I have ever seen. I gotta say, I absolutely love the reel. All of my reels are Curados and Revos, and I forced myself to live a little and try a Quantum. I'm glad I did. The Smoke is powerful, smooth and its distance rivals the curados. I've fished it about half a dozen times without a complaint. Oh...and it looks bad a** too!!!!

I also was torn between it and the Lew's Tourney Pro Speed Spool, but I was looking for a lower ratio, and at the time Lew's only offered a 6.4:1. I was able to get a new Smoke in factory sealed box for only $164.99 on ebay with free shipping, so that made my decision even easier.

Lew's will be releasing a new 5.4:1 Tourney Speed Spool model on June 20th. I ordered mine last week biggrin.gif

Good luck!
