Introducing the brand new
high-performance feature packed Fin-Nor AHAB
Fin-Nor AHAB®: Have you visited Fin-Nor's website lately? If you haven't
you'll notice that the website is in the process of a major makeover, getting ready
to introduce new items like this stunning reel you see before you. The Fin-Nor
AHAB® is one of the two spinning reels that
will be introduced this year at ICAST. The AHAB® will be their top of the line
spinning reel sporting all the brand's advanced features including the MegaDrag™, a forged aluminum spool, a machined stainless steel drive gear, a pinion gear
and center shaft, all-aluminum body and rotor, magnetic Continuous Anti-R reverse,
and 5 bearings. The series will feature four different IGFA line
class reels from 8 to 20 pound class.

The second spinning reel that will be introduced is the OFFSHORE®.
This reel comes in 4 different sizes that has good line capacity for those big
game hunts during offshore adventures. As you can see from the pictures below
this reel is just as attractive as the AHAB®
and features an aluminum body, rotor and side plate, machined stainless steel drive
gear, pinion gear and center shaft, 4 double-shielded stainless steel bearings,
and an oversized multi-stack offshore drag system.
The Fin-Nor OFFSHORE big game
The OFFSHORE OFS 95 has the largest line
capacity spinning reel on the market. Mono capacity: 600/20, 400/25, 375/30
Fin-Nor couldn't release new big game spinning reels without complimenting rods.
So they have also developed a series of inshore and offshore models. The
AHAB® (Inshore) is specified for the IGFA 8 lb.
class, and comes with a high-modulus graphite blank, Fuji DPS reel seat, and AA Flora cork
handle. The larger of the two AHAB®'s, AHAB® (Offshore) is of IGFA 12, 16, and
20 lb. class. These rods use heavy-duty E-Glass composite blank, Fin-Nor's
aluminum reel seat, Fuji Hardloy guides, and soft EVA handle complete with gimble.

Not much is going on with the freshwater PT reels this coming season, but
Quantum did replace their top end non-PT spinning reels. The Incyte™
is now their top of the line spinning reel that is not in the Performance Tuned
series. The Quantum Incyte™
is designed with an ultra-thin graphite body, aluminum side cover and spool,
3-piece spool with Titanium lip, front drag system, machined aluminum handle,
and 10 stainless steel bearings plus 1 Continuous Anti-Reverse clutch bearing.

is another new spinning reel being introduced for 2007. This reel features
everything on the Incyte™
but has only 8 stainless steel bearings instead of 11. Like the Incyte™,
the Array™ also
comes in 4 popular freshwater sizes; 10, 20, 30, and 40.

The Array is similar to the Incyte but with
PTs: Since the introduction of the Performance Tuned Saltwater reels, the
public has been utilizing these reels from coast to coast targeting different
species in many regions. But there was a missing piece of the puzzle. Quantum
lacked an offshore big game trolling reel. For 2007 they have answered with the
PTs. This reel is for serious anglers who are out targeting big fish in the deep
blue ocean around the world. Built to battle big game it is a 2-speed reel
armed with gear ratios of 3.2:1 and 1.7:1 for serious torque when power is
PTs make use 5 of Quantum's new Nitrogen-Alloy PT bearings, their exclusive
dual-carbon drag system with oversized carbon drag washers, and the very popular
high-performance Hot Sauce lubrication. The offshore reel is constructed from CNC machined billet aluminum, stainless steel PT gears, 3-bearing supported
spool (5 bearings total in the reel), and double-anodized with a protective finish.
Also what's nice about the Aruba™
PTs is that they do not require any tools to take the reel apart when it's time to
perform maintenance and cleaning. This reel comes in three different sizes with
line capacities of 750/20, 750/30, and 600/50 for the largest in its class.
Big game anglers will have three sizes to

Quantum Cabo and Boca PTs: The Cabo
and Boca PTs saltwater spinning reels have taken anglers by storm. For 2007
Quantum will introduce three new sizes, two at the large end for big game hunters
and the other in the 20 size for light inshore species. Now each family will
have a total of 7 different sizes to match each angler's specific needs.
From size 20 to 80, the Cabo and Boca PTs
reels will have 7 models each
Quantum Energy PTs: Last year we saw
the introduction of the Accurist PT Saltwater baitcast reel. This year Quantum
continues to up their saltwater specific reels by releasing the Energy PTs. This
reel might appear to be similar to its freshwater counterpart but the
Performance Tuned Saltwater baitcaster is a beast of its own. The Energy PTs has
a CNC machined aluminum frame, sidecovers and front support, and is completely
protected by Quantum's proprietary Saltgard 6-layer corrosion coating. Other
features include a ceramic drag system, 7 PT bearing system which includes 2
nitrogen-alloy bearings, Infinite ACS external cast control, dual PT bearing
Continuous Anti-Reserve, Ceramic Zirconia level-wind design, cold-forged 1-piece
capless & screwless handle, and Quantum's extra-durable PT gears. Like the freshwater
models, the Energy PTs will have a Burner model that sports a blazing fast 7.0:1 gear
