Rückblick Quantum Smoke Spin


As long as price is not an issue, the Quantum smoke Spin is one of the best rods for zander fishing available today. The design of the rod is rather unobtrusive and in grey. Nevertheless, the rod looks as if it is all of a piece. The rod has been recommended in many tests, and those who have devoted themselves to pike-perch fishing with a rubber fish and lead head should take a look at the rod. The rod is not only ideal for rubber fish, but also for plugs and other artificial lures, which can be easily guided and cast without having to compromise. So if you don’t only want to cast and guide rubber fish, but also want to unpack your plugs in the evening, this rod is a good choice.

The Design

As already mentioned, the blank is kept in plain grey and is very fast, thus offering the best possible feedback when fishing with rubber fish. You can feel a strong dryness in the blank when the lure reaches the bottom, so the feedback is very good. The reel seat is made of full metal and comes from the noble manufacturer Alps. It also allows you to put your index finger on the blank, similar to a Berkley skeletor so you can feel every bite and you can tell exactly what the bottom of the water is like. This gives you a decisive advantage. High quality SIC rings are a matter of course with such a rod.

Everything in Balance

I especially like the fact that the rod comes with counterweights. The end cap can be unscrewed and black weights can be attached between the handle and the end cap. So you can balance the rod well even with lighter reels. Goodbye to top-heaviness!

The rod is available in 3 variants as a spinning rod with something for everyone. The light version is ideal for lakes and light bait weights. The middle one can be used very well as an allround spinning rod. The heavy version is ideal for zander hunting in rivers like the Elbe, Rhine or Danube.


If you are looking for the perfect zander rod, you can only recommend the Quantum smoke Spin. Quantum’s flagship rod also comes with an elegant rod transport tube so that the expensive rod is always well protected. Note: The light smoke is more for normal spin fishing with plugs and the like, while the medium and heavy version are the taut pike-perch rods!
