Pfluger president vs president xt spinning...

Recommended Posts

Is there any advantage to getting the xt over the standard president?

 

I have some experience with the standard president but none with the xt.

The XT is a little lighter due to use of Aluminum for the gears...other than that, they're pretty much the same reel.

President, size 30:

Mono Capacity: 255/4 145/6 130/8

Max Drag: 10lb
Gear Ratio: 5.2:1
Weight: 8.80
Retrieve Rate: 25.3" per turn
 
Mono Capacity yd/lb:255/4 145/6 130/8
Max Drag: 10lb
Gear Ratio 6.2:1
Weight: 7.60
Retrieve Rate: 31"
 
So with the XT you get a 1.2oz lighter reel with a faster retrieve rate of 6 more inches per turn, at size 30.  The difference is slightly greater for the size 35, and slightly less for the 25.

Actually the lower ratio reel might be better if you’re throwing smaller size crankbaits.

I think I'd prefer old school heavier brass gears over aluminium.
