Pflueger President Spinning Reel

The Pflueger President Spinning Reel has been updated and re-engineered to provide enhanced performance and components with the same long-lasting durability and functioning Pflueger reels have always been known for. Offering improved styling, the reel's graphite body provides a sturdy base of operations, while remaining lightweight, and nine stainless steel ball bearings furnish consistently fluid casts and retrieves.

Extremely corrosion-resistant, the President also features a durable, stainless steel main shaft and stainless steel components. The anodized aluminum spool includes a distinctive hole pattern, which in addition to improving aesthetics also helps reduce weight. The spool lip is titanium-coated for added durability and line protection, and a larger diameter titanium-coated line roller helps further improve casting and line management. The front drag system with stainless steel and oiled felt washers also puts the pressure on fish, and stays smooth throughout its range. New and improved, the Pflueger President Spinning Reel is also ready and able to handle today's braided lines.

Additional Features:

-Instant Anti-Reverse One-Way Clutch Bearing
-Sure-Click Bail
-Backed by Pflueger's Limited One Year Warranty

Customer Reviews

Comments: Why would anyone put 15lb fluoro on this spinning reel?  Own two and fish them hard.  Great value for the $$.

From: Unknown 2/14/17

Comments: I absolutely hate this reel. I saw some very good reviews on so I went ahead and got it. I have fished with it for about a week and it just tangled up every time. Finally today it tangled so bad that it ruined my 15 Lb fluorocarbon I had on it. This is the worst reel I've ever owned next to a quantum I have. I will not buy pflueger again. 

From: Unknown 1/13/17

Comments: This is hands down the best reel for your money no doubt. I have been using them for years now & only downside I have seen is the fact that the plating on the handle wears off after a couple years but still ends up the smoothest reel that i have used for 60 bucks.

From: Brent: MI 8/10/16

Comments: Best reel I've ever used. I've used lots of reels in my fishing career and none compare to this one. I have the size 20 for my pangushing setup with a Shimano sellus with some 10lb pp and it handles everything no problem, Ive had a 5 pounder on the end of my rod and this reel handled it no problem. Super smooth but I wish the handle was a little stiffer but no biggee. It looks really good too. Nothing bad to say about this reel, even though it is 60 bucks you still get a lot of bang for your buck.

From: Gino: OH 7/21/16

Comments: 4 years of hard abuse & NEVER cleaning it, it still performs flawlessly. This "entry level" reel is worth every penny. I run primarily P-Line TCB 8 braid in 20, 30 or 40lb in vegetation; P-Line Flouro Clear in 10, or 12lb for deeper, snag-free applications; or Sunline Super Natural in 8, 10, or 12lb for topwaters. Yes, the reel can tame even the notorious Sunline Super Natural, not 100% tangle-free, but very close, only 2 tangles in 2 years, this is a tough line due to memory issues, but it's so slick it launches Heddon Spooks & Megabass Pop Max's a country mile.

From: Scrubs Bear: Bloomingdale, IL 7/16/16

Comments: I purchased a Pflueger President 6 years ago & up until this past year it worked perfectly! The only issue is with its reverse switch. Definitely can't complain about 5 years of perfectly smooth use & big fish handling ability for only $55

From: Nick: WI 7/7/16

Comments: Amazing reel. Best spinning reel I have ever owned. Smooth retrieve and A+ drag. 2 years since I bought me first one. I now have 5. Never have had a single issue with any of them. They have performed well above I expected

From: CJ: IL 5/27/16

Comments: Excellent reel for the price you pay. I'm on my third year fishing with it & it still performs great.


Comments: The best spinning reel possible. Super smooth, it feels like a dream. The drag system is amazing. It is comfortable & very affordable. Highly recommend!

From: Noah: QC, Canada 3/24/16

Comments: Love these reels. I have 2 of them, the 6930 for drop shot & shakes head & the 6935. I have absolutely beat up the 6935 & it has handled it so well. The 6930 I've also been pretty harsh on & I've had it for a year & there's barley any scratches. Very smooth reel, great drag & without a doubt the best reel for the price on the market. I plan on buying more in the future

From: Dannt: New Hartford, CT 1/5/16

Comments: This is one of the best reels I've ever used, and the price is amazing. On a recent fishing trip I switched with my fishing partner who uses a 100 dollar shimano, after a couple of fish, I wanted my pfluger back. I now own 2 of these reels one for bass and one for walleye. The overall performance of the reel is great, and the drag is smooth. All in all it is arguably the best spinning reel for the price.

From: Wyatt: Princeton, MN 5/11/15

Comments: This is one of the best spinning reels on the market. I had it for about two years before the drag clicker broke. It still works but it always nice to hear that drag scream, will be sending it into the shop to get it fixed.

From: Dylan: Palo Alto, CA 3/30/15

Comments: I spooled my new President with line, and it loaded heavy at the bottom, so I had to take out the metal spool shim in order for it to load evenly. Other than that, it is a great reel. Smooth as a dream. I have a couple of Trions I upgraded from, which I also enjoy for the price. Weird that I had to take off that much shim height on a new reel.

From: River: Phoenix, AZ 2/20/15

Comments: This is the absolute best reel you can buy. I've tried a lot of spinning reels for my shakey heads senkos and dropshots and this reel is excellent for every application. I own three. If you are a finnese fisherman you won't go wrong these reels.

From: Brent: NC 11/27/14

Comments: Great reel. It outperforms all other spinning reels for under 100. I have had one for 4 years and just last month finally decided it was time for a new one. the new ones are super smooth and sturdy as ever. Caught a nice 6 pounder with no issues whatsoever. Purchase one, you wont regret it.

From: Zach: FL 11/23/14

Comments: love this reel best reel ever i caught a 35 lb blue a few bass including a 5Lber this reel has a very good drag system I use it for senkos, dropshots and flukes buy it u wont regret it

From: Daniel: USA 11/16/14

Comments: The anti-reverse clutch stopped working after two months.  Bail design is poor; it cuases line to wrap around the arm often wich chews up the arm and this chews up the line.  Other than that it was very smooth with it worked properly. 

From: Cardo: NM 10/29/14

Comments:  These are the best spinning reels on the market IMO, performing better than other brands of reels that cost twice as much. Smooth as silk, light, awesome drags, and easy to take apart and clean. Pflueger is the best, hands down. Buy these for 60 bucks and save the rest of your money for lures. I own five of them, and when the rest of my spinning reels bite the dust, they will be replaced by presidents.

From: Tyler: Grand Junction, Co 10/22/14

Comments: best reel in the price range, using the middleweight for a bass, striper reel. caught a lot of bass already and lost what would have been my pb due to my error, let the fish jump. outstanding reel for all presentations.

From: Stan: USA 7/10/14

Comments: Completely outstanding reel for the money! I'm telling you don't be fooled by the price. Its just as well as 100 dollar reels. Pflueger makes the best spinning reels available drag is superb and very smooth reeling... with 10 stainless steel ball bearings and titanium bail wire you cant beat it for this price!

From: Nick: NY

Comments: best reel for the money. super smooth reel and super smooth drag!

From: Dylan

Comments: As said numerous times, best reel for the money - hands down ! I own 3 of these and its hard to even consider paying more for more expensive one. Love these reels. Never any issues.

From: Mike: Cumming, GA USA

Comments: There's a small gap between the bail wire and the tapered teardrop shaped piece it attaches to that braided line gets caught on. My older presidents didn't have this problem. Time to start looking for another brand of spinning reels again.

From: Nick: USA

Comments: My President 30 arrived  yesterday. Quite impressed so far .Used the reel today ,drag seemed real smooth.I have mine on a Wright and McGill 7ft medium light pole...Be on the lake tomorrow to test in a variety of situations.

From: Matt: Armonk,ny

Comments: Its a great reel, one of the most smoothest reels ever!!! I love it.

From: Grant: Lebanon, PA USA

Comments: not bad for a 60 dollar reel traded my quantum smoke pt15 in for one of these 25 series and the only thing its not on par with is the weight and drag. but it aint no 160 dollar reel so im not complaining. paired it with a 6,9 medium light pole for drop shot outfit.

From: Bigsby: chengmai, thailand

Comments: Awesome spinning reel! I needed to order a second one because I found myself wanting to throw everything with it! For $60.00 this is an unbeleivable buy, it has quality components that will not let you down. I've had mine for two seasons and have fished a total of 226 days with mine, landing nearly 1,000 bass and everything to 15lb salmon this reel is great! You can throw anything from weightless wacky rigs to giant swimbaits. Whatever your need - this reel will perform. Look no more.

From: Cobi: MI

Comments: I own several of these and have used them for years and they fish great. The drags are smooth and very reliable. Like many fishermen I have spent thousands on higher end fishing gear and in most cases you get what you pay for. Having said that for $60 you would be hard pressed to find a better spinning reel. The president fishes just as nice as a $200 reel without breaking the bank.         

From:  Richard: Frederick, MD

Comments: I have had mine for 6 years and it feels like it just came out of the box. I have landed plenty on pike and bass on this reel and it just keeps on ticking. Very smooth drag and has been put to work with no problems. It's been dunked more then a dozen times in a sandy river and still gives me the confidence I need. 

From: Devin: Estes Park, CO

Comments: Buy this reel! I have the other higher end Pflueger reels and this one performs just as well. The drags great. Deffiently dont over look the price this should be at least a $100 reel. Dont use in saltwater. I used one of these reels in satlwater and it ruined it.

From: Tyler: Timonium, MD

Comments: Beware! Pflueger must have terrible quality control. I bought the 30 size and was suprised at the performance. I then bought the 25 and it was like reeling gravel after just a few trips. I have seen this in the entire lineup from this company since the were purchased by pure fishing. imo anything produced by pure fishing is pure junk!

From: Rick: OH

Comments: I originally bought this reel for my 6 year old little brother because he wanted to go fishing and i didnt want him to have to use my high end gear. but when i took it out of the box it was so smooth and decided to try it on our trip. it works just as well as my shimano stradic ci4. and for only 60 dollars. every bass fisherman needs one of these on there boats for dropshotting. i love this reel.

From: Bryce, CA

Comments: I bought my first Pflueger reel about 5 years ago and it was a President. It is still my go too when I use spinning gear, even over my far more expensive Shimanos. It is still super smooth and free after all this time, and abuse. I use it for Northern pike mostly and the drag is great. It has landed me a 5lb Smallmouth, a 12lb Walleye and 2 pike that weighed 19 and 20 lbs. I think this reel is the best value in its price range and honestly, probably as good on better than anything costing twice as much. Don't let the price fool you, this real is a beautiful beast, looks great and fishes even better.

From: Brandon: Moosomin, Sask, Canada

Comments: Purchased the President model 6935 reel for bass & pike fishing. Will purchase the 6940 model for salmon, steelhead & large pike.  This reel is smooth & value priced but I hate the way reel manufacturers reduce weight by thinning & narrowing the reel stems! This can compromise strength & durability!!!! More & smaller holes (perforations) on the spool skirt should be used, as larger holes leave the reel vulnerable to water & debris.  Plenty of line capacity for this reel size & the 6940 model.
