The Quantum Accurist S3 PT Inshore Spinning Reels are salt-ready and designed to conquer the flats and inshore waters. Featuring a wide lineup of Quantum's Performance Tuned features, the Accurist Inshore Spinning Reel provides a refined design that delivers smooth performance and class leading durability. 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. That out-of-the-box smoothness is preserved thanks to the use of Quantum's PT Anti-Corrosion Bearings designed to withstand constant exposure to unforgiving saltwater environments. Multiple anodize, primer, and finish coatings create a sealed barrier of saltwater protection to the reel body, giving the reel the opportunity to do battle with saltwater brutes for multiple season to come.
