Manufacturer: Zebco/Quantum
Reviewer: JIP

Introduction: Being one of the largest and most popular tackle manufactures, the W.C. Bradley family continues to produce new and improved fishing rods and reels for anglers to use in their entire line of brands from Zebco to Quantum. The company has made huge advances in the diversity of their lineup, brand awareness, and general popularity in the last few seasons, and TackleTour is excited to be the first to give you a sneak peek of what's to come in 2006.


A new breed of saltwater spincast reels with saltwater proven components

Zebco Saltwater Spincast Reels: The Zebco series of spincast reels has gone a long ways from the very first reel over 50 years ago to today's all new and improved designs. Though we found out Zebco will be introducing about 10 new products for 2006, there was one new series that really caught our attention....something we never thought we would ever see, a quality spincast reel designed just for saltwater applications! The all new saltwater specific spincast reels are built with saltwater worthy components and thoroughly tested in their saltwater test chamber for long term durability. The new series contain three models, 33SW, 733SW, and 808SW, that ranges from medium to medium-heavy saltwater fishing applications.


Brand new baitcast reel, the Tour Edition PT has two models, one with a 6.3:1 gear ratio and another with an incredibly fast 7.1:1 ratio as well

Next Generation PT Baitcast Reels: For 2006 Quantum has upped the ante by introducing the all new next generation Performance Tuned reels. We are thrilled to see these new products sport some of the latest Quantum designs and technologies for enhanced performance. For the next season we see an all new Tour Edition PT reel in both right and left-handed models. The Tour Edition PT will have a regular 6.3:1 ratio and a super-fast "Burner" gears to produce a 7.1:1 ratio for those power fishers. These will be some of the fastest reels available on the market!


The Energy PT gets a complete redesign and incorporates all the latest technologies


In addition to the new Tour Edition PT reel, Quantum has completely redesigned a few of their most popular baitcast reels. The Energy PT gets a complete face lift and will take on the latest and greatest technologies. Like the Tour Edition PT reel, the Energy PT baitcaster will also use the new capless, screw-on handle which provides a more positive lock between the handle and crankshaft. The reel boasts improved quality and performance in an all frame that promises to be much more ergonomic.


Redesigned for 2006, the Energy PTi and Catalyst PTi makes use of enhanced systems
