The low profile Quantum EXO PT Baitcast Reels get their name from their exoskeletal hybrid construction. This technology combines a special, ultra-rigid aluminum alloy in load bearing areas with a lightweight composite that reduces weight in non-critical locations by half. The result is the lightest possible frame with absolutely no sacrifice in strength. Or to put it another way, Quantum EXO PT Baitcast Reels are 38% stronger than magnesium and six times stronger than a graphite composite frame.
Customized bearings are fitted in a special polymer cage for added sensitivity and corrosion protection. PT drag systems feature ceramic washers to dissipate heat in long runs. Single-piece aluminum frames are machined with computer precision to hold all critical components in perfect alignment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Basshunter0714 Great looks but poor quality
I purchased this reel in January 2014 preparing for spring fishing. I would occasionally flip and pitch the reel and now the cast puttin does not always come up and the gears just sit and grind. Or the button wi not fully push down. I own all quantum reels and I'm very disappointed with this one. This is the first one I've had problems with. I do love how it looks and it is very lightweight and smooth when it did work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dumbluck Problem solved - great reel - super light
The problem with the side plate coming off has now been fixed by Quantum. To remove the side plate, there's a small button that must be pushed to release the slide lock.
I sent my exo 100 in to Quantum after losing the side plate and they sent me a new version replacement reel. If you are buying a exo, be sure that it has the little button!
Can't wait to try the new version!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Meshuggah Great reel but has drawbacks
3 stars simply because the cons are:
Handle is not comfortable compared to a Shimano.
It is about $50 too much.
Shakes and has some movement in it.
Many pros compared to cons but I think compared to Shimano's Ci4, there is a noticeable difference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tank66 EXO reels
I bought the EX100SPT last year for flippin' and pitchin'. Reel has performed very well; light weight, plenty of drag, casts well. I have since bought 5 other EXO's. I have not experienced any of the issues others have written about. A little pricy....YES. On a side note, one of the EXO's I purchased was the 200 size. It is larger and I don't like it as well as I like the 100 size.
