    Has any one tried the Quantum Cabo CLW30 pts, I would like to know if it is good at casting and if it has a good drag. Would also like to know what would be a good rod choice if I get one. Thanks

    I have seen alot of customers with Cabo's...they all seem happy.. I have an Accurist PTS for saltwater wade fishing, and it has by far been my favorite... The drag on the reel you are thinking about getting is along the lines of a Penn 320, but more advanced. The drag systems are Magnum ceramic, impervious to heat, meaning you can tackle really big fish without worrying about the drag failing, and also meaning they should stay strong and smooth for a really long time, compared to other reels. The saltguard finish isn';t a gimmick either. I find it a must considering how often my reel get's dunked.. good reels..

    The Cabos are awesome reels. I don't own one but I have a fishing bud that uses them and he swears by them. I have used them while fishing with him and they are very tough. The price scares me off though. The cheapest one I've seen on Ebay was still $120! Thats way more than I can afford. I guess thats why they say you get what you pay for!
