Event Article: 2006 Fred Hall Show - San Francisco

The New Year brings new and exciting events and tackle to the 2006 Fred Hall San Francisco Show  (continued)

Quantum: Manning the exact same booth as last year, Quantum made a major impact at this year’s show with a display case full of new and exciting 2006 products. Following through on promises and prototypes shown at ICAST, Quantum has delivered with a broad array of new and redesigned fishing reels. We spoke to Quantum representatives Victor Romano, Jr. and Tom LeoGrande who explained to us, in detail, the differences between the 2005 and 2006 models in the PTi spinning series ranging from the entry level Kinetic Pti to the premium Energy PTi.

Victor Romano, Jr. and Tom LeoGrande explains to Cal the actions of the new Swimbait Tour Edition PT rod


In addition to the exciting new reels there were also new rods from Quantum in both fresh and saltwater. The Tour Edition PT series added a few more rods most notable of which were the new Swimbait models. The Tour Edition PT models PTC797XF and PTC7117XF are baitcasting rods that were specially designed to fish small to hefty swimbaits respectively. These models feature heavy action, extra-fast taper blanks for solid hooksets. For the saltwater side we checked out the Boca PTs line of inshore and offshore rods. The Boca series are right below the Cabo rods and sport quality Fuji components but lack the detailing of its pricier sibling.
