“Metal where it matters”. That’s the thinking behind Quantum’s new exoskeletal hybrid construction used in the EXO range of spin and baitcast reels. It combines a special, ultra-rigid aluminium alloy in load-bearing areas with a lightweight composite that reduces weight in non-critical locations by 50 percent. This allows the construction of the lightest possible frame with absolutely no sacrifice in strength. In fact, it’s 38 percent stronger than magnesium and six times stronger than a graphite composite frame.
EXO Spin are the ultimate in lightweight high-performance casting spin reels, with the EX25PTI weighing in at a mere 195g—and it still provides more than 7kg of drag power, thanks to a clever ceramic-stainless-carbon-fibre drag system.
The 10 polymer-stainless hybrid bearings are another clever idea: high-grade stainless bearings fitted in a special polymer cage for added sensitivity and corrosion protection. Other performance-enhancing features include the Quantum line management system, to keep your line packed neat and tight; extra-hard PT gears for perfect meshing and durability; a tough-yet-lightweight machined aluminium crank handle; and continuous anti-reverse, for solid hook-sets and lure manipulation.
The combination of lightweight, high power and advanced reel technology in EXO Spin reels will appeal to all anglers, from bream and bass tournament specialists, to snapper-on-plastics fans, to anglers using light tackle on big tropical favourites like barra, jacks and queenies.
