Re: What is wrong with Quantum

I gave them a shot but wont buy again. I just bought a new Tour S3 during 50% off sale glad I didnt pay more. I have an issue with it already it buzzes quite loudly on casts. The harder the cast the louder/longer the buzzing. It gets quite annoying after just a few casts. If setting the brake down ...

Re: What is wrong with Quantum

I'll add that my Quantum Smoke rods gen 1 7' M/F are my favorite rods I own. I would sell my Legend elites LTB NRX Kistlers Cumara all my other rods before Id let my Smokes go. So I dont hate on Quantum I just give my honest feedback on the products I use.

Re: Daiwa TWS And Braid, Opinions

The one link I was able to look at was from 2016. Come on guys if you don't like the T-wing that is fine but apparently the problems with it were fixed some time ago. I have seen no new posts of the thing grooving. For me the TWS deal is a non issue I neither love or hate it. I have used braid to l...

Re: Rod Weights

how does the balance feel? Using a 6.5oz reel not bad for a 7'5" sub 4oz rod. is it better then the H3 balance? Easily, NRX a tick lighter 2" longer yet better balanced. With a curado 70 on both the balance point is 1/2" closer to reel on the 893. Yea I also found the balance on that H3 model to be...

Re: Do You Have A Favorite Cheap Rod?

Quantum Smoke 7' M/F gen 1 casting. I got 2 and if they were still made Id buy more. Light at 3.4oz balances well even with Core 50mg7. Versatile range can throw 1/20 ned rigs up to 3/4oz KVD spinnerbaits or lipless cranks. Its impressed me more than any $200-$300-$400-$500 rod I own.

Re: Does the Curado K or DC have an aluminum gear options

Taking that weight off will throw the balance up the rod more negating the weight difference. :roll:
A heavier balanced combo is better than a lighter unbalanced rig.
