New Pflueger Patriarch XT.

Recommended Posts

Looks like a Killer reel. They dropped the screw on handle for a bolt on carbon fiber handle.

A few other changes. I NEED to get one of these.

So does Tackle Warehouse but honestly I don't see the big deal with it.  I hate the color, the handle is the best feature and it looks like Pflueger has gotten rid of the screw on handle, at least on the new LH model and I think on the RH? as well.  The handle is the biggest downfall of the reel but not a deal breaker.

I think it looks great. I like the dual brake setup. I wonder if it is the same as on the BPS reels?

Only thing I don't like about it is the lack of a 7.1

yeah, same here with the gear ratio. i find it interesting that it has a swept drag star but a straight handle  :-?

While I haven't seen the reel, I'm sure the dual brake is the same as on a regular Patriarch.

I've seen them on Ebay selling for $225.

I agree on the handle. It makes a nicer looking package, and should be completely bomb proof.

But I also can't help but think should you ever need to replace it, a few years down the road, you will be SOL.

The only thing I don't like about those style handles is that you can never make the back play completely disappear.  I have two Patriarchs and a Quantum with that style of handle and they each have a tiny about of back play.

Maybe pull them apart and re-assemble. The handle needs to be really tight. I pulled my Pro Finesse apart and had the same problem. Once the handle is REALLY tight then you can let go of the drag star.

There won't be any back play.

I have never lost a fish.  Its just enough back play to irritate me really.  Its my only complaint about the reel.
