Quantum Smoke PT-A baitcast reels

QUANTUM has updated its Smoke baitcast reels with the launch of the PT-A series, featuring the new PTX frame, designed to add rigidity while reducing overall weight.

The new Micro Infinite ACS external centrifugal cast control is another impressive addition, with a 250-degree rotation that adds 13 new settings for an even wider range of precise adjustment controls. And when casting, the new PT-A has a zero-friction pinion design that disengages completely, allowing the spool shaft to “float” freely, adding even more distance to your casts.

The Smoke PT-A design also includes Quantum’s improved CSC2 drag—an advanced system that uses a stack of carbon fibre, stainless steel and ceramic washers to deliver a silky smooth and impressive 25lb (11.3kg) of drag power. The internals run eight PT bearings and one anti-reverse bearing. The worm gear is ceramic and combines with a zirconia pawl for added durability.

The aluminium spool holds 170yd (155m) of 30lb braid—aluminium PT main gear and drive shaft, aluminium handle, titanium-nitride coated line guide, plus an aluminium frame and gear-side cover, which removes quickly for simple maintenance. There is also an oil port for lubrication.

Smoke PT-A baitcasters offer the choice of either a 6.1:1 or 7.3:1 gear ratio, with the latter also available in a left-hand-wind version.
