Quantum Energy E20PTi Spinning Reel Fishing Reels

Fishing Reels Manufacturer: Quantum
Quantum Model: Energy E20PTi Spinning Reel
Review Category: Fishing Reels

Purchase: After 20 years of favoring the same rod and reel (out of my collection of other rod and reels that I have aquired over the years), I felt it was time for me to retire my trusty Shimano combo that had given me so much joy in landing thousands of fish from around the country. I would still be using it today had I not seen the Quantum E20PTi spinning reel at Bass Pro Shops just outside of Baltimore. A quick swipe of $129.99 on my credit card and I was out the door in a flash. I couldn't get to my favorite fishing spot fast enough to try this amazing fishing reel. It seemed like a perfect fit for some 6lb. FireLine and my St. Croix AS60MF rod.

Things I like about the Quantum Energy E20PTi Spinning Reel: In one word...EVERYTHING! This reel is simply amazing all the way around. Just on looks alone, nothing else even comes close to the Quantum E20PTi. The only way I can describe it would be to say that it is a Quantum Catalyst PTi reel that was sent to West Coast Choppers or Monster Garage, loaded up with performance upgrades and then given a killer paint job! The titanium vacuum deposition finish on the reel is breathtaking! It changes diferent colors from every angle you look. No two reels are exactly the same and the color variations are diferent with every reel. With these stunning looks, the reel seems like it should be kept in showcase or given to someone as a trophy. You can't help but stare at the colors changing while you fish. Everywhere I go, people stop and ask about it. It is a great conversation piece and attracts a lot of attention at the fishing dock. This reel has the smoothest lines on the market. The flawless one piece aluminum body resembles that of fine Italian sports car. But don't sleep on the performance of this beauty. It can land big bass with ease and keep asking for more. The multiple color finish looks like it would delicate but its actaully tough as nails and scratch resistant. I have had this one for a while and put it through the wringer and it still looks like came out of the box. The 10 stainless steel bearings (yes, that is correct...10 bearings!) keep the reel running SUPER SMOOTH and ultra quiet on returning the lure. The anti-reverse simply can not be beat! The TiMag bail system is super! It never fails and works like a dream. The longcast spool makes casting very easy and will add distance and accuracy to your fishing game. I have yet to have any problems with the line getting twisted and tangled. The ceramic drag system can tame the wildest of fish time after time without fear. Quantum also uses their "Hot Sauce" lubrication throughout the reel to keep everything running smoothly. You also get a free spare aluminum spool to hold your favorite line as backup.

What I don't like about the Quantum Energy E20PTi Spinning Reel: The only thing I didn't like about the reel was the availability of finding one! It seems I could find the E10 and E30 but never the E20. I searched all over the internet and local shops for weeks for the E20PTi and finally found one (the last one in stock which an employee just happended to find while looking for something else for me) at Bass Pro Shops in Baltimore. They told me that this reel is so hard to keep in stock because it has become so popular. They only got a few in and they sold almost immediately. Other than this minor problem, there is not one thing that I don't like about this reel!

Energy E20PTi Spinning Reel quality: Quantum has set the bar for making the finest spinning reels on the market with the Energy PTi line. This is the reel that will have all of the other manufacturers trying to play catch-up!

Energy E20PTi Spinning Reel summary: It's the best fishing reel I have ever seen or used! It might seem a bit expensive at first but it is worth every penny once you put it on your favorite rod and throw out your first cast. You will not be disappointed! You would be crazy to buy another reel other than this one!
