    I have heard alot of good things about these reels. I tried for a while to get a couple to try out but, no luck.
    Some of us only wish we had a few of them, they quit making them a few years ago.

    When I started fishing the catfish trails, a friend worked out a deal for me with Quantum/Zepco and they furnished me Quantum Irons. Most of them were 420's and some were 410's. They are as smooth casting as anything around. They hold 110 yards of 30 pound fishing line. I was also given six heavy duty cat rods, which I replaced within a year for something with a little more flex. Just had the reels reconditioned and they are as good today as when I received them from the factory. If anyone is interested I will take a photo and post so you can see what they look like.

    I bought a pair of them a couple years ago at Bass Pro on Clarance.
    Only regret was I should have bought more. They are a little higher speed then I liked at first but they have been bullet proof tough so far.
    I will have to look and see what model mine are, They do not have the Level wind but I haven't missed it. I think I gave 49.00 dollars a peace for them and they have been worth every penny. Super smooth Reel!
