Significant weight reduction was the driving force in the creation of the Quantum Smoke PT Micro Guide Casting Rods. Featuring lightweight Micro Guide technology, the Smoke Rods are also available at a much lighter price point than comparable rod models. Almost six times lighter than traditional aluminum oxide guides - a total set of Micro Guides weighs next to nothing at only 0.025-ounces. Along with greatly reducing weight, the Micro Guides also help increase rod sensitivity by positioning the line closer to the blank, while at the same time improving casting distance by eliminating line-slap.

Super-sensitive HSX70 high-strain, million modulus graphite blanks keep the weight down as well, delivering the ultimate blend of quality, reduced weight, and strength, while Split EVA high-performance Grips balance out the rod perfectly and provide ergonomic, all-day comfort. Lightweight, sensitive and affordably priced - with the latest Micro Guide technology - what more could you want from a rod series? The sleek and stylish Quantum Smoke PT Micro Guide Casting Rods also pair up perfectly with the Quantum Smoke 100 & 150 Casting Reels - for a combo that weighs in at only 8-9 ounces.

Comments: well update to the last one I did and I had 2 of these rods, well I now have 3. I added the 7'6 heavy, WOW these rods are hands down unbeatable. My Shimano Crucials are nice (I have 8 of also )but are not as lite or have the feel that these do in hand. Match it with a  Shimano Curado or a lews and you can cast to the moon. I fish 3 to 5 days a week and they get used, so I can speak from time on the water. I highly recommend these for crankbait rods and top water popers (7' Med/Mod Fast -- 6'6" Medium). Buzzbaits, Jig and small swimbaits (7'6" Heavy) Love em.

Comments: I own three of these rods: 2 - 7'MH and 1- 7'4H), with that said I like the sensitivity and the light weight these rods offer. I pair all of them with EXO 100 reels. The one complaint I have is the micro guides bend easily and the glue cracks easily as well. But overall, I am very happy with them, especially the 7'4 H. I use it as a football jig rod and it has improved my presentations and hook up ratios. It says Heavy but it is a tad on the MH side in my opinion with the softer tip. Just wish Quantum would use the same type of micro guides that the Dobyns Savvy Series uses.

Comments: I recently bought a 7'6"H and I've paired it up with the new KVD reel spooled with 65# PowerPro braid and absolutely love it! I use this rod for frogs and it has plenty of back bone to get fish out of thick grass! Will definitely purchase another one soon!

From: Patrick: Natchitoches, LA 5/4/14

Comments: Just got done fishing the 7'4"H all day, casting and pitching jigs in gnarly cover. The thing is a broomstick, not in a good way. No, I dont have weak arms. Wanna wrastle? Even with the micro guides, it's still heavy!. 

From: Jay6: USA 4/10/14

Comments: Got the rod in 6'9" MH for 100$ and its my first "real" rod paired with a Lews Tournament Pro. From what I've gathered so far the action is supposed to be XF but feels more like F. However I don't believe it takes away at all as the rod just feels so solid and is unbelievably light. Would certainly recommend this exact rod to anyone looking for an all purpose beast.

From: Ryan: Doylestown, PA, USA

Comments: These things are just sick. They are light and have a great tip I have 3 casting modles and 1spinning and they all are great, and match with a Energy PT lures they are flawless

From: Turner: SC

Comments: 7' MH is an awesome spinnerbait rod.  Throws a 1/2oz on 12# flouro like a dream excellent bite sensativity and backbone for setting the hook and getting them to the boat.

From: Eric: Naperville IL

Comments: My favorite!  Absolutely love this set-up and my smoke reel, got the MGX and Revo Winch but this set-up has caught me so many hawgs!  I use it strictly for senkos which may be why I catch so many fish but this thing is indestructible!  It's all graphite and very durable.
