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.

Christened on the first outing.

I picked up one of these to pair with a 9' Pfleuger Trion to target Aust Salmon and Tailor off the beach using spinners and poppers.

Firstly the 50 was a good match for size and gear ratio. Retrieve was smooth and I wasn't cranking my arm off to get the retrieve rate I needed. I have put on 20lb braid. I hooked my first Salmon, which promptly headed for the horizon. Line peeled off smoothly but I was able gradually crank up the pressure until I had enough control to turn the fish back.

In terms of bringing the fish to the beach I found my only minor criticism with the reel; the size if the handle. With a little rain, salt spray and/or fish slime the handle is a little small and potentially slippery, but it wasn't too much of a problem.

Next, having landed the fish, the reel copped a dose of fine south west sand while I was unhooking. A quick splash of salt water and all was well. No later signs of sand or water ingress.

Following Salmon 1, several more followed in quick succession. The reel continued to please.

I've only given the reel that one good workout, but for the price point I am very happy with the performance.
