Featuring all-new styling and a new design, the Quantum Catalyst Casting Reel still delivers exceptional angler value. A dual cast control system, consisting of an internal ACS system and external magnetic system, provides six internal centrifugal control settings and ten external magnetic control settings - for the ultimate in casting precision. Its solid, lightweight Aluminum frame and gear sidecover also keep all moving parts in perfect alignment, and a 10 bearing system ensures fluid functioning. Quantum's unique Flippin Switch even allows anglers to engage the reel by simply lifting their thumb off the thumb bar, instead of using the other hand to crank the handle and engage the reel. Perfect for a host of bass fishing applications from flippin to tossing rattle traps, and everything in between, the all-new Quantum Catalyst Casting Reel does it all for a reasonable price.
The Catalyst’s 10 Polymer-stainless hybrid PT bearings system (9+1) furnishes consistently fluid casts and retrieves, and its extra-hard PT Gearing generates the torque necessary to wind in hard fighting fish. The exclusive Long Stroke aluminum spool design also facilitates longer casts and the Timag II Bail features a magnetic bail spring which unlike traditional bail springs never wears out and is guaranteed for life. A quality reel for a great price, the new Quantum Catalyst Spinning Reel is a true performer.
The Catalyst PT frame and gear-side cover are made from custom-machined aluminum to provide a solid foundation for the gears, drive shaft and bearings. The Quantum Catalyst PT drag washers are ceramic to improve performance and quickly dissipate the extreme heat from a hard-running fish. The reel features a bail wire made from flexible, yet durable nickel-titanium, with a lifetime guarantee. The new Quantum Catalyst spinning reels feature the hybrid Razor Rotor that reduces weight, but not performance.
Impressions: When you pick up the QuantumCatalyst PTi reel you will be amazed on how well this spinning reel wasdesigned. That's how I felt when I first received and analyzed theCatalyst PTi.
