Pflueger® Patriarch Spinning Reel is rated 3.6364 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from very noisey and grindey Bought 4 of these 9540x reels. Salt water salmon fishing. After 1 yr. ALL these reels became noisy & started grinding. I have 2 Diawa KIX and 2 Stradics 5 years old, no problems. All my reels get the same treatment. Water bottled pray rinsed and oiled after each fishing session. Had them serviced the bearings it seems are kaput. Will try and get new non Pflueger bearings. Unfortunately cant find schematics on this site. Reels looks and feels great,excellent casting and very braid friendly. Lift your game Pflueger. Better bearings and you have the best reel on the market for the price .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought two of these reels, a 9525X and a 9530X. Both are great reels! I am comparing them in smoothness of operation and smmothness of the drag systems to reels costing 3 times as much and I am impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than happy with the Patriarch! I bought the Patriarch in May of 2013.  During the summer I go bass fishing exclusively on the famous Menominee River and this reel performed flawlessly.  Ultra-smooth operation, lightweight without feeling cheap, and the design is fantastic.  The only problem with the Patriarch is that it makes my old reel feel like a rusty meat-grinder in comparison!  Worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding customer service Great reel.  I had an issue with mine and I was personally lax on sending in the warranty card. The issue was resolved in my favor without question. This surpassed my expectations. The reel itself is the best out there - just look at the weight the materials, the specs. Then, use the reel. In use it will confirm that there is nothing better regardless of price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth, Stout but noisy I have several Pflueger reels but only one Patriarch (the 35 size). The reel is smooth and very stout after several years of salt water use. The casting range is great with Suffix 832 20lb test line. My only issue is it is noisy. I sounds like the bail is loose and makes a loud click on every revolution when under a load. I have several Supreme XLT's and they are flawless. For the price difference I would think it would be the other way around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a gem My initial impression of this reel is that it is a gem.  The finish appears to be perfect, which is important in salt water; the weight is unbelievably light; and the retrieve and drag are smooth as silk.  I haven't been able to put this reel to a test, but I anticipate nothing will change, but if it does, there will be a follow-up review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I purchased 1 in spinning, 3 in casting. No issues with any of them. Work flawlessly and will be purchasing more spinning patriarchs in the near future to replace all my other spinning reels. I would highly recommend. Very consistent drag and a easy flip on the bail not to mention super light
