Quantum Leap Into the EXO Generation (continued)

EXO PT Rods: With the introduction of the EXO PT reels comes the EXO PT rods. These rods feature EX4 blank construction, which combines lightweight carbon fibers and resin in a custom graphite matrix that produces lighter, thinner blanks with enhanced sensitivity and durability.

These rods also sport Fuji components. Stainless steel micro guides are used with Alconite inserts and the new Fuji SK2 split reel seats are part of the EXO PT rods.

A little bling all around


There are seven casting rods which range from medium all the way to heavy, sporting fast to x-fast tapers. The casting models will have a weight range as low as 3.24 ounces up to 4.84 ounces depending on the model. The EXO PT spinning rods come in six models from medium-light to medium-heavy weighing from 3.17 to 3.89 ounces, again depending on which model you choose. The rods will retail for $179 and will be available October 2011.

Conclusion: There you have it folks. The new Quantum EXO PT series of reels and rods are really impressive with much talk about them on the ICAST show floor, similar to what happened in 2010 when Quantum quietly introduced the Smoke casting reels. This time they went all out with their booth design, pro-staff on hand to give their impressions, and their interactive website that’s a must visit for those who want to learn more about the products before purchasing them.


Thanks Bob Bagby for showing us the exciting and innovative EXO generation of products


The skeletal design is awesome, putting “Metal Where it Matters” and reducing much of the unnecessary weight. Include those additional features to complement their already stellar construction and you have a truly innovative, lightweight, and high performing reel for anglers. Come the end of this year anglers will be able to experience the Generation EXO products and we know you’ll be as impressed as we are.
