Quantum spinning reels


Recommended Posts

Is anyone using the Quantum Energy spinning reels? How do you like them? I have 11 days, 10 hours, 0 min's, and 34 sec's to make up my mind. Thank you.......

I got an Energy E5 6 or 7 years ago and I love it. No problems whatsoever.

I've had one for many years. Only problem I've had is that the bail no longer closes when you start to reel in, you have to manually close it before you start reeling. This happened after about 3 years of use though. Very smooth reel.

A new little bail spring would make that reel just like new. I have two Quantum PTi reels that are just super to use.

I bought a Quantum PTi E20 last year that is the smoothest spinning reel I have ever fished. The drag system is flawless. grin.gif

I had a quantum energy a few years back and I hated it. I think it was one one the lower end models though. I'm sure if its one of the better models it will work just fine. I just wasn't very satisfied with the particular one I had. It seemed to put a lot of twist in the line.

I also was not pleased with my Quantum Energy. Mine froze up after a year and a half of regular use. Personally I would not buy it. I have friends that have had them go to crap after a year or two also. It was a nice reel until it went out. I would go with a Shimano or Pfluger. Maybe a Sahara or President. All or my Shimano's have been bulletproof. Hope this helps!

And another thumbs up...I have a Catylist now and used an E5 for years. Quantum is the first brand I look to when I need a new reel. You know, I think you could pick just about any decent reel manufacturer and ask about thier reels and get a pretty similar response, most good, a few bad. Except almighty Shimano, of course:) Nothng personal fishlakeman, everbody has shimano and most love em', I just haven't had any better luck with them than other brands, and thier weird names drive me nuts!

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.
