The Quantum Centex Reel is a low profile casting reel designed for freshwater fishing applications; more specifically bass fishing. The Centex Casting Reel, from Quantum Fishing, is an excellent choice for the novice angler or someone just learning to cast a baitcaster. Although priced as an entry level reel, the Centex is absolutely packed full of features. First and foremost, the Centex is extremely light weight and easily palmable enabling anglers to enjoy a full day of fishing with the onset of fatigue. Additionally, the Centex possesses the coveted 7.0:1 high speed gear ratio which has, in recent years, become the most demanded feature for many bass fishermen. The high speed gear ratio affords anglers to make many more casts during a day as no time is wasted slowly reeling in an unproductive presentation; the Centex retrieves 29" of line per turn of the handle. The reel's handle exhibits upgraded pro-grade EVA foam grips for added comfort and reduced slippage when wet. Finally, the reel just flat out looks awesome. The black/grey tones of the reel are contrasted by bright orange accents. The Quantum Centex Casting Reel is certainly a great value at only $79.99. The Centex is available in a right-hand only 100 size model. For more detailed information please consult the technical specs tab.
