If you’re looking for a heavy-duty spinning reel that’s ideal for big fish, like tarpon, you’re going to love this review.

We’ve got Mark unboxing the Quantum Cabo 60 here and breaking down everything you need to know about it.

He’s been using the Quantum Cabo 80 for tarpon down in Boca Grande recently, so, in addition to the technical knowledge, he also has experience with how it works out on the water.

You’ll learn:

  • What’s unique about this reel
  • What style of fishing this reel is best for (and what style it’s not good for)
  • How Quantum has recently upgraded their reels
  • And much more

Also, keep in mind that we’re not sponsored or affiliated with Quantum or any other reel company, so this is a totally unbiased review.

If you’re looking for a powerful reel for tossing live or cut bait for big fish, like tarpon, and don’t mind paying a lot for reels, this reel is for you.

Outstanding review. Thank you. Any chance you could review Shimano Saragosa 8000/10000 models. I need a few new tarpon reels and this was a contender but with the weight issue, I think I want something lighter.
