Fishing Reels - New Quantum" Baitcast Reels Offer Aluminum Value
Fishing Reels - Adapt. That's exactly what the new low profile Mantra " and Tempo ", baitcasters allow you to do. Featuring the unique and externally adjustable DynaMagŪ magnetic cast control, all it takes is a click of the dial to regulate for any casting condition.
The Mantra has 5 stainless steel bearings and a 6.2:1 gear ratio. The Tempo comes with 4 stainless steel bearings and has 5.1:1 gear ratio. Both models hold 165 yards of 12 Ib. test line.
Both series feature a solid, yet lightweight, one-piece precision-machined aluminum frame to house internal mechanics. This is a rarity in baitcast reels selling for under $100, and in the case of Mantra and Tempo, we're talking less than $80.
An aluminum frame is a big deal because it forbids flexing of any kind, even under the most severe conditions, and offers steadfast protection to keep machined brass gears and stainless steel bearings precisely where they are supposed to be. Gears and bearings work together just like they are designed to do to deliver a smooth, consistent performance over the life of the reel.
A lightweight aluminum spool provides smooth sailing during casting and retrieving. Both the Mantra and Tempo have Quantum's exclusive Continuous Anti-Reverse"' system. A system that ensures no back-slop and rock-solid hook sets.
The Mantra sells for about $79.95; the Tempo retails for around $69.95. Both series come in right and left-hand models.
