The Tour Edition TEC666F is representative of Quantum’s newly designed HSX42 Tour Edition medium-modulus graphite rods. Professional fishermen on the company’s advisory team designed this casting rod as well as all the other actions in this 18-model series, which includes ultralight to nearshore saltwater fishing actions. The overall perception of in-hand lightness by all testers encouraged one to suggest this model is more a medium than a medium-heavy rod. One reviewer picked this as his second top choice; another liked it for accurate pitching while another felt it gave average casting. ‘I’d use this rod with jigs,’ stated one of the team.
