THE PERFORMANCE TUNED SERIES. TINKER. BUILD. FISH. REPEAT.

Radically designed. Obsessively engineered. Exhaustively tested. And continually modified to help you squeeze every ounce of performance out of your fishing gear. Every rod and reel in the PT Series is a souped-up, tricked-out testament of our never-ending mission to engineer the ultimate fishing experience.
 



 

tinker

The Quantum lab is loaded with the most advanced design and testing gear several million dollars can buy. Because you can’t make PT gear without breaking some conventions (and a few rods).

 

Strength in numbers

Advanced computer analysis helps us eliminate excess weight in a reel’s frame (like the Exo PT shown here) without sacrificing strength or responsiveness.

BUILD

“Good enough.” “Don’t overthink it.” “That’s the way we’ve always done it.” Those phrases just aren’t in our vocabulary. Anything is fair game, as long as it raises your game on the water.

 

PT BAITCAST TECHNOLOGY

Rock solid frames

Single-piece, precision-machined frames hold all components in perfect alignment. Ultra light, high-strength grades of aluminum (or magnesium for the Tour Mg) yield reels that won’t flex even during heavy cranking.

Precision cast control

Quantum’s exclusive ACS braking system is the most accurate ever designed for baitcast reels. The external dial lets you quickly fine-tune the amount of centrifugal braking to match any fishing situation.

 

PT SPINNING TECHNOLOGY

LMS keeps line in control

Every Quantum PT spinning reel features an exclusive LMS Line Management System that directs your line to the roller with smooth precision. So you can spend more time fighting fish instead of line tangles.

Sleek, rigid frames

Lesser spinning reels can flex at the stem, giving you a sloppy feel when you’re battling a big fish. Our ultra light, single-piece aluminum frames hold all components in perfect alignment with a rock solid feel.

 
 

PT ROD TECHNOLOGY

 

Performance Tuned blanks

Starting with ultra light, sensitive, high-modulus graphite blanks, we work with today’s top anglers to fine-tune the action of every PT rod. For whatever techniques you're into, we've got the perfect match.

 


FISH

Think it’s hard to fool a bass? Try fooling a bass pro. Bottom line: it’s not Performance Tuned until the guys who make a living with a rod and reel say it is.

REPEAT

The vicious cycle starts all over again. Let’s just say fish get more sleep than our engineers.
