Another neat (not so) new reel from Pflueger

Recommended Posts

Haven't heard much about the new President baitcaster. I played with one at BPS. Man, it's a solid feeling reel. Great ergonomics (ie palmability), just like the Patriarch. Pflueger has dispensed with the magnetic portion of the brake system, and now its only centrifugal. And they are alot easier to adjust than on any other centrifugal brake I've tried. The pins are metal, unlike on the Revo S. According to the Pflueger website, it has brass gearing - an upgrade over the old President which was aluminum (I think). And the spool holds a reasonable amount of line (100 yards of 12lb), less than the Revo and Curado.

This is one sweet reel.

i have the president XT (the purple version)its pose to be the lighter version of the the regular president. not sure sure how much better giving both are ten ball bearings. but i love mine i bought the combo from bps. it came with the pflueger president xt rod. it must have been a father day product cause i cant find the combo no where else stores and online. only the cabela rod ive found as a combo online. i thought it was a steal too for i paid 79.99 for the combo when the reel alone is that price. so far both is holding up. i wasnt sure of rod when first bought it but i think it has good strength to it.will love to put it to the test on a fish instead of snagging underwater branches or those snapping turtles. pulled one of those out that had to be three feet from head to tail.

I think the president xt sells for 79.95, so you got a free rod.......nice deal.

tell me about it. i jumped on it fast that day. i was weary of it cause the pole being like free. but its a im8 6'6 one piece. so me and dude at counter talk me into it. its prob the same pole as for the president combo just it was painted the color of reel and name the xt rod. cause like i said it was only there during the father day sale. and no where else sells and in the catalog the combo comes with the bps rod.

but anyways i was only in there for the bps microlight that sells for 49.99. so now i have two my so call bass poles other is the gander mountain tournament combo and no micro light............................yet.

I'm starting to worry about you micro.

First, the statement about the Patriarch besting the STX in your hands, then the interest in the new XT Patriarch and now you're picking up a President and admiring.

Are you sure you're prepared to cross over to the mook side of the force?

Either that, or I'm thinking about making my first JDM acquisition.  I'm holding off on a new reel until I see what's coming out at ICAST.
