2008 Fishing-Gear Premiere - Reels

2008 Fishing-Gear Premiere - Reels

Quantum Aruba PTs
The Aruba PTs offshore two-speed lever-drag reel now comes in two high-speed versions - for 20- or 30-pound line. Anglers can choose to set the reels for a 4.2:1 or a 2.7:1 retrieve versus the 3.2:1 and 1.7:1 selections available on the three original models, which debuted last year.
 
Arubas feature Quantum's exclusive nitrogen-alloy PT bearings, which the company says last longer, crank smoother and provide greater corrosion protection. The reels also feature a dual-carbon-drag system with two oversized carbon washers.
 
The smaller of the two machined aluminum Arubas holds about 750 yards of 20-pound-test; the larger holds 750 of 30. The reels sell retail for $499.95 and $519.95.
