The all-new Quantum Smoke Speed Freak baitcast reel features an 8.1:1 gear ratio—which retrieves 35 inches (89cm) of line for every turn of the handle. It also features Quantum’s new ‘PTX’ frame, designed to add rigidity while reducing overall weight to 6.4oz (181g).
The new Micro Infinite ACS external centrifugal cast control has a 250-degree rotation, adding 13 new settings for an even wider range of control for precise adjustments. Plus, when casting, the new Smoke Speed Freak design disengages from the pinion gear completely, allowing the spool shaft to ‘float’ freely for zero friction to help add more distance to your casts.
The Speed Freak baitcast reel includes the improved new CSC2 drag—a system that uses a stack of carbon fibre, stainless steel and ceramic washers to deliver a smooth 25lb (11.3kg) of drag power. The reel design features 10 bearings and one anti-reverse bearing, plus a lightweight aluminium frame and gear-side cover, which removes quickly for simple maintenance.
