Quantum® Cabo® PT™ Spinning Reels
Best overall in its class !
Let me save you some time... I completely compared this to every reel in its class for line capacity, drag, number of bearings, gear ratio, and retrieve rate. It topped them all- especially in drag. Some of the reels I have and like can't match the line capacity (Stradic FJs, Spinfishers). I got the PT60 and put it to the test. It's almost no fun catching something under 100 lbs ! The drag is so unbelievable smooth- and sensitive ! I use this for tarpon and snook, and I just stand back and let them wear themselves out- then horse 'em in for a quick release. I got 400 yds. of 30lb braid, 40lb flouro leader, and matched up to a Star Stellar lite 15-30lb heavy. Whatta combo ! This is an excellent real.

Can't buy a better reel at close to this price. I'm a diehard Shimano man and generally spend more for a quality saltwater spinning reel but love this reel.

I love the way my new Cabo reel feels. i haven't used it much out in the water, but I was a little dissapointed that for the price it didn't include any lub oil for the gears and other parts.

Well built, Great Drag 80
I purchased this reel for pitching baits while trolling for Mahi Mahi, catching big Tarpon and the best bottom spinning reel you could own. Caught a 27lb gag locked the drag and pulled up the fish right off the bottom.Put this on a shimano terez 50-100lb rod and no fish will get away. Best all around set up I have.
