$89.99 Are You Kidding Me? Check out this review of the Pinnacle Producer LTE baitcasting reel!


Pinnacle Producer LTE

If you are an angler looking for value, Pinnacle has answered the call with the Pinnacle Producer LTE.

I acquired this reel a few weeks ago and have it dialed in and ready to rumble. The color is a muted or flat black accented with gold trim. It is a beautiful, lightweight baitcasting reel with features that are simply amazing at this pricing point. For less than $100 you get all this:


  • 9 Bearing System (8BB+1RB)
  • X-Bone Carbon Frame and Side Covers
  • Duralumin Spool, Drive Gear, Worm Gear and Drive Shaft
  • Concave Aluminum Handle with EVA Grips
  • 6.2:1 Gear Ratio
  • Externally Adjustable Magnetic Cast Control


And the total package weighs in at just 5.75 ounces!


I spooled the reel with 30-pound Tuf-Line Tournament 8 and took it for a spin. The magnetic brakes are easy to adjust, mine is set at 3. Casting distance is good. The retrieve is smooth, quiet and effortless without any wobble.  Perhaps a better description here is the reel is tight.


The muti-stack drag system built into the Producer LTE has been designed to provide a smooth, even flow of line under constant pressure. The performance is on par with far more expensive equipment. I am impressed with how this component compliments the overall package.


Pinnacle has created a very competitive reel at an affordable price.
