Gentlemen, start your crank baits. The Quantum Q-Lab in Tulsa, USA has delivered yet another impressive innovation with the new Quantum Throttle spinning reel.
The Throttle is the first reel to feature "Reel Engine Design" (R.E.D.), a uni-body construction that delivers an ultra-stable platform for the drive gear and shaft in a single rear-accessible compartment. This unique design results in tighter tolerances and an ultra-smooth cranking action.
Featuring a graphite rotor, stainless steel main shaft and a heavy-duty anodised-aluminium bail arm, the Quantum Throttle is remarkably durable. The front-adjustable, multi-disc drag system also packs plenty of fish-stopping power to subdue the toughest Aussie fish. The reel is available in three sizes (30, 40 and 50) and all include 11 stainless steel bearings (10+1 clutch), a Continuous Anti-Reverse clutch, a braid-ready spool band and a double-anodised MaxCast II spool design.
The Quantum Throttle 30 has a line capacity of 150yd/10lb, a gear ratio of 5.2:1 and a maximum drag capacity of 8lb. The Throttle 40 features a line capacity of 230yd/10lb, a gear ratio of 5.3:1 and a maximum drag capacity of 13lb, while the Throttle 50 has a line capacity of 225yd/12lb, a gear ratio of 5.3:1 and a maximum drag of 14lb.
For the complete Quantum package, the Throttle reels also combine seamlessly with the new Quantum Throttle graphite composite rods to deliver high-performance, yet affordable fishing combos. The two-piece rod designs allow for easy transportation and storage and all Throttle rods incorporate quality guides and comfortable cork grips for smooth and precise casting.
