    I have the Quantum Cabo PT and love it.
    Quantum reels are great reels from my limited experience thus far and I have no complaints.

    i have 2 of the quantum cabos just like yours and they are built for inshore saltwater use. they are great reels with plenty of line capacity and the smoothest drag i've ever used. my biggest fish so far is a 54lb blue cat and the reel operated flawlessly landing the critter. i'd recommend this reel to anyone.
