It seems to be a President with Supreme XT handle.  Typical Pflueger smoothness. I bought a 25 & 30 size when they came out.  Worth the money.

ADD: errr, thanks to the membership for showing me I need to read more carefully... I'm speaking of the LE.  I see a President XT on Pflueger's website, 'coming soon'. Is that the one you're asking about?

The President Limited Edition spinning reel is available only in 2016 so get yours while you can. These reels take the President® to the next level of performance. They are lighter and faster with a high-speed gear ratio. Featuring a aluminum main shaft, aluminum pinion gear, sealed drag, carbon fiber handle and custom laser engraving.

Very smooth reel, one of the top reels in this price range IMO.

There's a President LE (Limited Edition), XT (upgraded president), but no SE that I'm aware of?

i was going to get a President LE recently but wasnt sure if it would hold up to the same reputation as the regular presidents. thats even after reading up on it here and a couple other places so i just went with the regular presidents...i didnt read much negative about the LE, i think someone here did mention something with the handle stripping out on them twice, but i also saved myself a little cash by going with the regular presidents.

My le is not as smooth as my regular president. Im waiting for the casting president xt

Have the money in Paypal ready to order as soon as they're available :) I don't like the pre-order game.

 

The LE looks and feels nice, but after watching @gardnerjigman struggle with the handle knob on his, I went with an Okuma STX instead. Love my Pflueger reels, but didn't want to risk having the same mess happening with my reel.

I have the LE and the XT, I have had no trouble out of the LE. It is very, very close to the XT in smoothness.

Yup, I had issues with the LE handle on 2 different sets. They finally got me a handle that seems to be holding together. It's not like it gets abused either as its strictly a ned rig combo.

I've got one that I've been using exclusively since May. It's been solid and smooth, granted I haven't put hundreds of hours on it, but I'm very happy with mine.
