Quantum Tour Edition Pt

Recommended Posts

So I got a tour edition for christmas and finally got to use it for the first time yesterday. I'm at school at Penn State but the winter has been so mild the ponds at a local golf course haven't froze over. Me and a couple other kids from the bass team ran out for an hour and a half after class just to shake the dust off.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this reel! It is so smooth and easy to cast I can't say enough about it. I was casting and pitching a jig from the bank and I was getting great distance. Then I put on a weightless havoc wide load to fish in the thick algae. The reel had no problem casting that light lure accurately and without backlash, even when the wind picked up significantly. I can't comment on the drag yet because unfortunately I didn't get a single bite. The only fish any of us caught was about a 6 incher.

I love this reel and I wish i would have bought more of them when I had the chance because apparently quantum isn't making it anymore now that they have the exo at that price point.

Can't wait to get back with a more in depth review whenever I finally get out on big water.

That reel was actually more expensive than the EXO, it was $259 retail. Once they were discontinued Cableas was blowing them out on a black Friday sale for $99, I tried to get one but they were gone pretty quick but places that still have them are starting to discount them. That reel will serve you well for a long time to come, give us your review after you get to use it.

I was actually one of those people who got in line at 4 am specifically to buy the tour edition on black friday. I wish I would have bought more of them, I saw guys just putting their arms out and sweeping 7 or 8 of them into their basket!

went out to the local golf course pond yesterday and the TE shined again! I can't get over how accurately and how far I can cast light baits with this reel! I was fishing weightless flukes and had no problem putting it right where it needed to be and when they bit the reel performed great, no big ones so still can't comment on the drag but reeled smooth the whole time.
