Greg Hackney's Gear


  • Now featuring Quantum's advanced EX5 graphite blanks, the Quantum EXO Tour PT Casting Rods are lighter and more sensitive than ever - with the durability tournament anglers demand.

  • Weighing in between 3.1oz and 3.3oz, the Quantum EXO Tour PT Spinning Rods just keep getting lighter and lighter thanks to their new EX5 graphite blanks and updated components.

  • Kevin VanDam is one of the best in the business when it comes to fishing a crankbait, and the new and improved Quantum Tour KVD Cranking Rods have all the features and attributes he needs when he is on tour.


  • The Quantum Tour MG Casting Reel is Quantum's first-ever magnesium baitcast reel. Weighing in at just 5.4oz, it's incredibly lightweight and packed with Quantum's latest Performance Tuned features.

  • The Quantum EXO 200 PT Casting Reels are bigger and better than ever with increased line capacity and the same award-winning, ultra lightweight, lightning fast performance.

  • The biggest EXO of them all - the Quantum EXO 300 PT Casting Reel delivers maximum spool capacity, torque and speed for targeting the biggest bass you can find.

  • Featuring Quantum's revolutionary EXO-skeletal hybrid construction, the Quantum EXO PT Spinning reels are incredibly lightweight and powerful. They shoot conventional reel design full of holes.

  • One of the lightest and best performing spinning reels that Quantum has ever created, the revolution continues with the new Quantum Smoke PT Spinning Reel.
