A graphite-composite-aluminum frame makes for a toughest-in-class exterior to assure drive and pinion gears stayed amply aligned, while 10 total stainless bearings provide long-term ultra smooth internal operations. Amazingly, you get that sort of bulletproof hardware in a 9.2-ounce package that makes it among the best equipped, yet one of the lightest in its class. The Accurist PT also features exclusive Quantum performance tuned components like an indestructible, bend resistant, nickel titanium bail wire that has a lifetime warranty. The reel’s drag system is composed of layered ceramic washers that resist heat. They won’t warp, and in turn, give you smooth operating peace of mind that won’t leave you with a busted fishing line – and a broken heart – when big fish make a long run. Combined with carbon fiber and stainless steel, Quantum PT drag systems are designed to take extreme punishment.
