I own 2 Patriarch Reels and bought the President LP Reel for flipping and pitching. Hands down the finest reel I ever owned.

the pfluger president is an outstanding reel, very smooth, I have always been a pfluger fan. I fish alot or tournaments and can always count on the president for multiple uses. this is my 4th pres. and the oldest is still a great reel after many yrs of burning a blade.

Not that great

This is the most expensive reel I've ever bought, and I was disappointed. Sure, you never have a backlash, but that's because of the centrifugal brake system. Instead of the reel backlashing, some of the weights pop out in the brake (but you don't know it). You gradually find your casting distance getting shorter and shorter, and you have to take the side of the reel off and pop the weights back in. Casting distance is then restored. I personally find this a pain in the neck. You'll note that Pflueger doesn't use this system on their newer reels. I've gone back to magnetic brake reels that are cheaper and perform better. Maybe it's just the way I cast, or perhaps the particular copy of the reel I received that's the problem.

This is my first Pflueger baitcasting reel and I'm impressed. I'm generally a Shimano fan but decided to try something different this time.
I probably own 25 baitcasting reels currently and use them for largemouth fishing as well as snook, reds, trout etc. This reel will be used in freshwater for bass and it reels smoothly, has good cast control, and the drag is also smooth. I've used it twice now and caught several bass using crankbaits and spinnerbaits. The reel couldn't have preformed better and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it highly to others considering a reel in this price range. Actually after using this reel I would have guessed a considerably higher price.
Hope and expect the reel's durability to be as good as the numerous Pflueger sinning reels I've used for years.

very nice reels

I bought one of these last season.
I'm very pleased with it's smoothness, and easy too adjust. Can't find anything to say bad, so far it's been a great reel. I have used braid, and mono line with a number of different lures without any problems.
If i need another reel, the only reason i would not get another one would be i want to try something different.
