Pflueger President spinning reel ???

I’m thinking about getting a Pfueger President spinning reel. I would like for you to compare it to these brands. If you could, compare it to a reel thats in the same price range, which is $60. How is it compared to Shimano? ABU Garcia? Mitchell? Quantum? And if you can name a reel that you think is better than a Pflueger President and in the same price range feel to free to comment. Any reviews/ comments on the President would be great too. Thanks!

The Pflueger President is an excellent reel for freshwater applications. I own 2 of them , (along with a Pflueger Supreme), and they have held up well for bass fishing/general freshwater.

There is no comparable reel in it’s class (for the money) other than the Shimano Sahara & Daiwa Exceler, (and they don’t even come close!). I’ve ALWAYS used Shimano/Daiwa gear and got a President as a fathers day gift.

Since that time I’ve purchased another one AND a Supreme, ($99). The Supreme is a dream to fish!

Anywho, get the President if your fishing freshwater, it’s a “keeper”. If you want a FANTASTIC reel (in the hundred dollar class) get the Supreme.

Go to for reviews of reels from people who actually own them.

PS- I just checked- Cabelas has Pflueger Medalist reels on sale from $79.99 to $59.99. You may want to get a Medalist…………
