Redesigned for 2019, the Quantum Energy S3 PT Spinning Reels utilize an array of Quantum's Performance Tuned technologies to achieve a level of performance that crushes other reels in its class. Boasting Quantum's new Reel Engine Design 2.0 technology, the Energy's body and frame are precision machined to provide a more solid foundation for the gears and drive shaft. Precision machining results in a frame that aligns gears, bearings, and shafts perfectly, enabling effortlessly smooth cranking due to more consistent and tighter tolerances. Built with a redesigned Dura-Lok Clutch, these spinning reels won't fail under heavy stress the way that other spinning reels have been known to do. Durability is further enhanced with a patented nickel-titanium "memory metal" bail wire that will never bend or break, retaining optimal rotor balance throughout the life of the reel. Quantum's PT Bearings and PT Gear Design lubricated with their signature Hot Sauce reel oil provide exceptional smoothness for an enjoyable fishing experience. With a multi-disc drag system of both carbon and ceramic drag washers, the Energy S3 PT is capable of producing heavy drag pressures that remain smooth and consistent.
