Intro

Quantum SL40 PTS is one of the Smoke PT series. If you have tried these reels, you are already aware of the high-performance advantage that they brought to the fishing industry.

Fitted with 10 bearings, you know that you have an efficient power horse in your hands wherever you are angling from. The main point of discussion and the reason why you may want to consider this reel is the fact that your new Quantum SL40 PTS is fitted with the dynamic quantum C4L4 rotor.

Main Usage

Quantum SL40 PTS is fitted with a versatile line capacity feature that makes a great reel for different fishing circumstances. No one is very sure how the sea will behave while in deep sea or fast-river angling locations.

Because of its decisive gear ratio advantage, the reel can be used to tackle the large fish too. You will be impressed at the way the body and frame are built to offer long lasting service without easily breaking down. So you can pack up and venture for several weeks without having to call for support, or even disassembling the reel.

Product Features

Body and Frame

The reel comes with a reduced body size compared to its predecessors. It has been pimped up with an ergonomic design that makes it efficient and easy to handle. Every angle and surface have been designed to provide the best mechanical advantage, and room for the most appropriate positioning of the handle and function knobs.

The body is a strong and durable aspect of the reel. It is built out of stainless steel and forged aluminum. It is noncorrosive. Guarded with the multilayered salt Guard II, anglers have nothing to worry about even in the saltiest of fishing locations. It is beautifully presented with a smooth multilayered finish for the best resilience.

Drag System

This is yet another reel that unpacks a new drag system which is a product of ingenious technology. It is a break from the traditional star drag.

The CSC drag system offers a lot more than just strength. It is a carbon fiber and ceramic system with the capacity to carry well over 20lbs. The drag is strong, steady and non-wobbling. It is fitted with a stacked ceramic front for that smooth feel and effect. The settings can be easily adjusted to suit the angling experience of the moment.

I was impressed with the size of the handle too. It has a great soft grip. You cannot easily slip your hands off this handle. It offers a tough drag that comfortably delivers when experiencing the long runners.

Casting Controls

I guess the casting has been aided by the great gear ratio. I could cast the lines to a great distance with such precision and power. I was impressed by the continuous hard retrieve experience the reel offers.

I could also retrieve smoothly; thanks to the gear ratio advantage. The reel is fitted with an anti-reverse feature that prevents backlash when you experience the hard tackles. The precise distant casting feature is undoubtedly something to highlight. 

The casting controls are easily accessible and do not require much fumbling to achieve the desired effect. With a line capacity of 250/10, anglers have the freedom to go for the great clients anywhere.

Gear Ratio

It is the gear ratio that provides angling advantage and that fluid operational experience. The reel has a gear ratio of 5.3:1. It is living testimony that more bearings can provide a significant effect in casting, retrievals and general reel operations. If you have ever tackled a large bass or pike, you know what a great gear ratio can do to help you reign in these stubborn clients.

The reel has been fitted with the best spinning bearings that have been reinforced for the maximum durability. I was impressed by the polymer stainless hybrid PT technology that makes the components of the reel non-corrosive and strong.

Conclusion

Quantum SL40 PTS comes with good old Smoke PT technology and has Polymer for efficiency.

The continuous anti-reverse feature makes sure that you have your prey held tight and secured. The body and frame are made out of durable material that guarantees long service. The reel can also be used in harsh saltwater environment safely because it is non-corrosive. It is a tough but still smooth and good looking
