Extremely popular since its creation, the Pflueger President Casting Reel is a true performer on the water and a solid all-around bass reel. Just as adept at casting weightless rigged plastics as it is throwing heavier lures, it features a sleek elegant look and a low profile design that provides maximum ergonomic comfort. Nine (9) double-shielded stainless steel ball bearings and a one-way clutch instant anti-reverse bearing contribute to the reel's smooth functioning and worry-free performance. The rugged one-piece solid aluminum frame along with the aluminum handle side plate are precision engineered to ensure all moving parts are in line and functioning smoothly. This causes less wear and tear on the internal components and is one of the reasons for Pflueger's reputation of durability and longevity.
In addition, the main gear applied star drag system with carbon fiber washers provides hefty stopping power and easy adjustments. Mirroring the drags strength, the President Casting Reel is equipped with a Titanium line guide up to the task of handling today's braided super lines. The machined, anodized aluminum spool is ported for weight reduction and Pflueger added a lightweight aluminum handle with soft-touch knobs for additional weight curtailment. The Pflueger President Casting Reel also employs a patented six-pin adjustable centrifugal brake system for precision cast control, as well as, a soft-touch thumb bar spool release for added comfort and convenience. Rest assured, the Pflueger President Baitcasting Reel is built to last and has the features and ergonomics angler's need in a hiqh quality baitcasting reel.

Comments: nice palmable reel. i have the smaller size and i love it. the 6.3:1 gear ratio in mine makes it a versitable reel
From: Alec: Illinois, USA
Comments: Nice small profile for easy palming. IMO the previous President cast 2x better and smoother. Also, maybe its just me, but this new President and also the Patriarch (incl. XT) makes this funny grinding noise when slow cranking... still a nice solid reel for the price.
From: Ker: Florence, KY
Comments:Just used this reel at KY Lake, very smooth and powerful reel! Casting lightweight lipless baits was a breeze, performs like a reel that cost twice as much. I will buy more Pflueger baitcasting reels, worth every penny!
