Did Bass Pro/ stop selling Pflueger baitcasters?

Recommended Posts

I have been looking for  a Pflueger Supreme Xt baitcaster to buy with Bass Pro gift cards. Not available online and when I called the Michigan store and Portage IN store they told me that stopped selling Pflueger baitcasters in the stores. I checked Cabelas and ships from manufacture only, not available in store in Michigan.

Huh. Actually, that's really interesting to know. I was just in the Portage store a week ago. It didn't dawn on me at the time, and I didn't look closely, but I don't think I saw any Pflueger.  That sucks -- folks who have used the Supreme XT caster tend to really like it (I have it in spinning -- great reel).  Meanwhile, I'm waiting for the new President Caster to come out in a lefty model.

They don't list the Supreme XT on their website, just the President XT and Patriarch. I doubt they carry them if they don't list them on their website.

Simple answer. Money!!!  The Cabelas stores still sell the majority of the Pflueger brand reels, so why duplicate inventory.

The Pflueger Supreme XT low profile baitcaster for $149.99 and their website says they are in stock. 

 

I believe, as time goes on, their best option to keep Cabelas and Bass Pro stores open and both profitable they will have to sell different inventory.  For example, if you live near Bristol VA./TN. there is a Bass Pro on one side and there is a Cabelas on the other side of the state line.  No more than 5 miles apart and both are relatively new stores.  Johnny can use his huge buying power and split the stock between the two competing stores. However if he stocks the same reels in both brand stores he will deplete sales in both.  Therefore if he splits the inventory by brand he gives the buyer a reason to shop both stores. He does not care which store you go shop at, he still profits. I am certain you will see more of this as time goes by.  For several years there were no Daiwa reels sold in BP.  

Go order your reel online at Cabelas.
