Quantum spinning reels


deadeye

Question

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the new quantum catalyst PTi, and kinetic PTi spinning reels. I think that they are the ones with the hot sauce lube that I have heard so much about. I have a couple of the ACS baitcasters and I love them so I was wondering if anyone has anything to say about those spinning reels. I usally use Fin-Nor spinning reels but I want to expand my collection. wink.gif thanks for any info!

my son bought one this winter. we got out to play with it a week ago.( a little river fishing) he got the catalist. i have shamonos, and pinn. dead bolts. the pt is VERY smooth. it turns so easily that it almost feels unbalanced. ( trust me it isn't) he got the 30 and we put it on a 7 ft med Bass pro bionic blade rod. this made a very well balanced set up. i am interested to see how the bail stands up. so far i am very impressed with it. del

You use Fin-Nor spinning reels and you're looking for something BETTER?

Thanks for the feedback! I haven't got to play with one of the quantums yet because none of the stores I have been to have them. I am going to cabelas so I might end up getting one.
catfish, I am always looking for something new to try. Every year I get one nice combo and since I have three of the fin-nor setups now it is time for something different. Don't get me wrong, my fin-nor's have been better to me than anything else I have had but I jsut want to have a reason to get a new setup. you know how it is!

i have had a pt20 catalyst since last fall.
i do like the reel and 1 of the main feature's i like is the spool size...
the 20's take 140 yds of 6lb so you do not get the coils like some other reels... plus 2 aluminum spools... have 4lb /1lb dia. fireline on 1 and 8lb mono and the other for ice fishing right now... the fireline can get hung on the roller at times but very seldom... have had no problems down to -35 as of yet.... the drag is smooth and consistent and the bail spring can be bent right out of shape and snaps back...
the kinetic is a nice reel also with the 6 bearings and this will be my next reel but in the pt 10 size....
i also jig with a fin nor megalite 1000 that is a nice reel but it will now be my rigging reel.... try the pt's you will not be disappointed... no more symtyre's for me
here's a link to some tackle critics that have a report on the pt reels

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
