The Smoke S3 PT Spinning Reel From Quantum Rises Above

Learn more about why the new Smoke S3 reel reigns supreme, and why it deserves your attention. 

Twenty years ago, Quantum introduced its line of Performance Tuned (PT) reels. Since then, it's been an ongoing process of engineering innovation leading to new technologies and improved product performance year after year.

Take the new Smoke PT S3 spinning reel for example. Completely redesigned for 2018, the S3 utilizes Reel Engine Design, a revolutionary way to manufacture a spinning reel. This design keeps all the gears and key components in precise alignment for a smoother, more durable reel.

The Smoke S3 is also loaded with other PT features, like ceramic drag systems and an unbreakable titanium bail, and there's a saltwater resistant In-Shore model if you want to take it to the beach, bay, or out to big water.

It also helps that the S3 reels have an all-new asymmetric gear that is forged and machined from high-strength aluminum. The gears mesh better and provide incredible durability and smoothness.

Quantum also matches high modulus graphite Smoke rods to all their reels, so you can find an easy choice in the rod department as well.

The 3-year PT extended warranty it comes with is the icing on the cake; when you're ready to find out more, check out
