Quantum’s extremely popular and unbelievably lightweight baitcaster has been beefed up to dominate the scrappiest inshore saltwater brutes! The 8 corrosion-resistant PT stainless/polymer hybrid bearings perform smoothly and powerfully even through long seasons of saltwater fishing. The lightweight SCR alloy aluminum frame and sidecovers are protected from the harsh inshore environment with exclusive SaltGuard 2.0 multilayer corrosion coatings, so your reel will not only perform well over the long term. ACS cast control helps you execute perfect casts, and the aircraft-grade aluminum main gear and drive shaft provide incredible strength and light weight.

The absolute lightest reel I've ever used for salt water, matched this to an GLoomis IMX 6'6" 782C rod, WOW. I can fish with this thing all day long without any fatigue. Whole combo with 12lb mono spooled on it weighs less than 10oz.
Super smooth drag, awesome casting distance (though I think my older Quantum Energy PTs casts a bit farther, may need to just get used to the smoke) super low profile so it's ungodly comfortable in your hands while palming the reel. Cannot say enough good things about this reel especially if you're used to slinging spoons all day.
I do wish it had a bit more ACS control but no issues yet and I really have to try to cast like a newbie to get this thing to backlash, darn near impossible once you've set the tension knob right.
