Quantum created the Throttle as a one-piece reel rather than a traditional two-piece spinner. The company says this design leads to more precise alignment of gears for smoother, more durable performance. The reel also features a MaxCast II spool, which reduces casting friction by eliminating line contact with the front spool edge. Throttles come in sizes 20 and 30, employ 11 bearings, and offer a 5.2-to-1 gear ratio. Price is $59.99.
