Early last year I began configuring some rods with Quantum Reliance PT reels. These reels have truly held up to the rigors of charter fishing. To date not one reel has failed. The saltwater is very hard on equipment and for a low cost reel these hold up. They actually hold up better than more expensive reels. I am not sponsored by this company and pay full price for them. I am going to continue to purchase these reels and will place them on my favorite “Toadfish” rods . They work in unison as a great combo. Clients on my charters have landed redfish, snook, trout, grouper, permit, pompano, black drum and snapper on these reels. I prefer the 3000 or 4000 reels. these reels retail for approximately $90.00. If you are looking for a long lasting quality reel that is guide tested try one. You won’t be disappointed.
