It seems impossible to make a reel more durable with new features to add to the toughness and function, yet reduce the reel’s weight by as much as ten percent depending on the model. But the new Pflueger® President® does just that. A great reel, perhaps the most popular spinning reel in its class, just got better. More reel and less weight, a great combination. The graphite body and rotor is still the foundation of this lightweight reel. And the reel still touts the very best features of any spinning reel in its class. Start with nine stainless steel bearings (six on the model 6920) plus the instant anti-reverse one-way clutch bearing. And don’t forget the large diameter titanium coated line roller. The multi-disk drag system with stainless steel and oiled felt washers is smooth and cool. The gear ratio remains the very versatile 5.2:1.
Now the President® offers a larger solid aluminum bail wire with the Sure-Click™ system. The new solid aluminum bail is stronger and more dependable than ever before. The machined, ported and double anodized aluminum spool has been upgraded to be braid line ready. Five models are available including the 5.9-ounce 6920, rated for 100 yards of 4-pound test mono/125 yards of 6-pound braid; the 7.2-ounce 6925, rated for 110 yards of 4-pound test mono/140 yards of 6-pound braid; the 8.3-ounce 6930, rated for 145 yards of 6-pound mono/190 yards of 8-pound braid; the 9.9-ounce 6935, rated for 185 yards of 8-pound test mono/220 yards of 10-pound braid and the 10.9-ounce 6940, rated for 230 yards of 10-pound mono/280 yards of 14-pound braid.
The Pflueger® President® spinning reel can be configured for right- or left-hand retrieve. The MSRP is $49.95 and $59.95, depending on model. The President® spinning reel is matched with 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 4’8” ultralight to the 7’0” medium action version.
