The Pflueger President spinning reel is one of the most popular spinning reels in its class — and it just got better. The company has found a way to make the reel more durable with added toughness and function, yet reduce the reel’s weight up to 10 percent. The end result gives the angler more reel with less weight. That means longer fishing with no fatigue.
The graphite body and rotor still represent the foundation of this reel. The President also comes with nine stainless steel bearings (six on the model 6920) plus the instant anti-reverse, one-way clutch bearing. It also utilizes a large-diameter, titanium-coated line roller. The multi-disk drag system with stainless steel and oiled felt washers keeps the fish fight smooth and cool. And the gear ratio remains the very versatile 5.2:1.
The President now offers a larger, solid aluminum bail wire featuring Pflueger’s Sure-Click system. The machined, ported and double-anodized aluminum spool is braid ready and all the reels can be fished with a right- or left-handed retrieve.
The reel comes in five models, including the 5.9-ounce 6920, rated for 100 yards of 4-pound test mono or 125 yards of 6-pound braid; the 7.2-ounce 6925, rated for 110 yards of 4-pound test mono or 140 yards of 6-pound braid; the 8.3-ounce 6930, rated for 145 yards of 6-pound mono or 190 yards of 8-pound braid; the 9.9-ounce 6935, rated for 185 yards of 8-pound test mono or 220 yards of 10-pound braid and the 10.9-ounce 6940, rated for 230 yards of 10-pound mono or 280 yards of 14-pound braid.
The Pflueger President spinning reel retails between $49.95 and $59.95, depending on the model. You can also pick up a combo featuring the President spinning reel and an IM-8 graphite rod for a lightweight combo that is high on performance and sensitivity. Each blank is built with stainless steel frame guides and inserts and top grade cork handles. Seven combos are offered, from the 4-foot, 8-inch ultralight to the 7-foot medium-action version. The combos retail for $69.95 to $79.95.
