Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 76 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth, strong and light This reel is great. I own 20+ Quantum reels dating back 15 years. This is the best. My first trip with it was to Lake Amistad, TX in the sping. Lots of 4 to 6 lb bass. This reel performed flawlessly. It is lighter than others and the 100 series has a smaller line capacity but plenty for most bass fishing situations. I used 17 lb florocarbon line for this particular situation but will not hesitate to change to any line necessary. May 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super smooth Great fishing reel. I have had this for a number of months and have been so happy with it I felt compelled to write a review. Super light, extremely smooth, awesome drag. One of the best reels I have ever owned. May 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Reel The reel is very lightweight, very smooth also. You will wanna put the breaks on 3 on the side of the reel to prevent backlash, even with the breaks on it still casts much farther and smoother than nay other reel. I very rarely backlash. I have this paired up with a Duckett Micro Magic and it is the best combo I have ever had. April 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by braided line I have found that when using braid during a cast quite a bit if time the line gets between the frame and spool but otherwise the reel works well January 18, 2014

Smoke or Exo

Details: 
Narrowed my choices down to the smoke and exo for a new finesse reel. Just gotta choose which one, any suggestions?

Answers

A: 
I personally would choose the smoke. Its is super light weight, and if I remember correctly its cheaper than the exo.

They are both good reels. If you don't want to spend the extra money, buy the Smoke, you should not be disappointed. I have both and like them equally well.

Q:

Very Loose drag problem

Details: 
I bought two of the Quantume Smoke PT Baitcast reels (100 & 150 Series). I noticed that both have very loose drag settings compared to my Pro Qualifiers. I can either have loose or very loose (free spooling essentially), I can't stop the drag at all. I am afraid this would affect my ability to reel in larger bass since they could just strip off line without me having to thumb the spool to stop them.

I currently have on 30lbs braid.

Is this part of the reel design or did I have bad luck and get two lemons?

My guess would be lemons. I have many of these reels on my boys and my rods and do not had any issue with loose drags. Have pulled in 6 1/2lb carp, 8 lb pike, several cats and many hogs this summer with no problems. Drag performed flawlessly.

A: 
I have one of the 100's and i can tighten the drag to where i almost cant pull it out... so im guessing that you have a lemon.. i had to return mine and get another because the drag setting for casting was way to tight, even on free spool.. i think they have a quality issue. one of my other quantums has the opposite problem and is in free spool all of the time.

A: 
I use this reel with a 7' medium action G. Loomis GL-2. It is not the best choice for baits under 1/4 ounce. I often use Senkos and lighter spinner baits, and I get frequent overruns, even after adjusting the brake and spool tension.

My Abu Garcia Revo SX and Orra handle the lighter baits better.

A: 
My Smoke is paired with a G. Loomis GL-2, and it casts medium and heavy baits far, once you properly adjust the centrifical brake and spool tension. It does not handle baits 1/4 ounce or lighter very well, leaving you with overruns if you cast with too much force.

A: 
You must need lessons with Curado reels I have 2 and use them for 1/16 - 1/4 light lures and can sling them a country mile they are not quite a smooth as the Core but the Curado is a nice user friendly reel if matched with the right rod.

A: 
it really depends on your casting ability with this reel, the longer i use it and better i get with it, the farther i can cast. I can cast over 30yds and the drag setting is not even on free spool. So you should be able to cast extremely far if you can cast with the reel on free spool.

A: 
I can cast basically any bait that's an 1/8oz or higher (depending on your rod action it will be easier/harder). The ACS works great. Good rule of thumb, backlash starting in the beginning of your cast, you need to turn up or down the cast control. Backlash at the end of your cast, you need to adjust your brake (usually slightly tighten)

for the most part, it weighs next to nothing, but IMHO I think you lose the anchoring piece in a rod and reel setup when you lose that much weight in the reel. I would want a lighter rod before I would get a lighter reel.
