4 Stars mines broke, 2006-04-25
Reviewer: mike

the reel i purchased worked good in the box. i bought it last year and lost the recipt. the first time i used it, the clutch that keeps it from goin backwards broke. i took it apart and found that the nut that it is pressed into had cracked allowing it to slip backwards. wasnt real happy about that. ive bought at least 8 quantum reels over the years and and they are all worn out. im disapointed with the quality. but anyways, id like to fix this one. if anyone knows how i can get parts e mail me at mikeeatsbugs@verizon.net thank you

4 Stars Great reel, not just for beginers, 2006-03-03
Reviewer: Jeff G.

The reel is very sturdy & a breeze to use. It takes some getting used to with the whole trigger thing, but after a few casts you get the hang of it. I purchased one for my fiance, because she does not like holding the line & she loves it, not to mention I "borrow" it from her more than she uses it. I would recommend this real for any beginner transitioning from a standard casting reel to a spincast reel. Also, it is a good addition for any fishing arsenal.

Reviewer: Fishnut

I did some research on reels over the last few weeks, and the hypercast jumped out at me as the most innovative design in spinning reels to date. So i went down to the local fishing store and had a look at one, the trigger casting design is flawless. Almost like using a baitcaster, but having the reliability of a spinning reel. It does weigh in a little hefty compared to my other reels, so I picked up a shiny new Berkley Cherrywood Graphite rod to balance out the package. The only beef I have is that it is a plastic body, I would have liked to see a graphite or titanium body, but at the price point I'm not complaining. It's a solid reel, but if you have a heavier main rod, like I did, pick up a lighter rod, your wrists will thank me on those long days of casting. And the continuous anti-reverse is unblieveable, I compared it to my Shimano ix2000, and it's like a breath of fresh air, the bail stops dead and locks in any position. Where the snapshot and other thumb activated casting systems have to reset to the centre, and you lose a little line when trying to set the hook in that monster, this baby will set on a dime, and bring in the big boys.
