To create a reel that was strong yet light weight and smooth, our engineers developed the Hybrid Body System. The Hybrid Body System incorporates aluminum in critical strength areas like the stem to maximize strength. Graphite is used in less stressed areas to cutout unnecessary weight.
- 9 stainless steel ball bearings
- On/Off instant anti-reverse bearing
- Lightweight Hybrid construction provides the strength of an aluminum body without the weight
- Machined ported and double anodized aluminum spool
- Smoothed sealed carbon fiber drag system
- Solid aluminum bail wire
- Sure-click bail provides an audible signal when bail is fully opened and ready to cast
- Anti-twist titanium line roller
- Convertible Left and Right hand retrieve
Pflueger® Purist® Spinning Reel is rated out of 5 by 9.
Rated 1 out of 5 by YY66 from The reels are not worth the money I have two of those reels 35 and 30. After 2 months of not heavy use the bigger one works like real cheap reel. It is way too far from smooth action. Smallest one is holding okay so far. There is no comparison with president reels. I have 2 presidents also. Price is way too high for Purist. I wouldn't pay even half price for that low quality reel. Was expecting too much, because of sharp look. That was such a waste of money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by j528 from Great reel !! bought this reel last year late in the fall ( closer to winter actually) first chance to fish with it was around Feb. went after some steel head up at cold creek and this reel did not disappoint !!! hooked into a very nice steel head and the reel performed very well, drag was smooth, and the reel felt very balanced I could not have been happier . I used the reel the rest of the 2013 season and caught tons of small mouth , lg.mouth bass, and walleye . This reel cast long and smooth and i have not had problem one with mine.(1335 #) so the low star rating took me by surprise ..... as far as my experience all i can say is do your self a favor and pick one up. oh yeah my local tackle shop sells these for 58 bucks !! out the door ! which makes me even happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dan1 from Very Pleased I had been using Presidents and was very happy with them. Then I picked up a Purist on sale. It's a great reel. I have a 25 and two 30's. I fish in Canada twice each year and the Purist has held up very well against some nice pike, bass and walleyes. The drag is very smooth. This is a very good reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crankb8 from Very Nice Reel! I own Presidents that I've replaced with Supremes which are 5 stars. I had to try this reel just to see if it lived up to my expectations of the Pflueger brand. I truly enjoyed it, smooth like the Supremes and feels just as balanced. Drag worked as expected. So far, so good! Great reel for the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Track from Great Reel I have four of the 25 and I use them for crappie fishing I have no issues and have bought all of them on sell. I also have 7 president and 2 patriarch and they are also great reels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Volfan from Great reel Not sure why the poor reviews. I have a President in the 25 size which I love, but my family kept using it so I had to buy one of these. One of my first times out, I hooked a 10lb catfish on 6lb test (was using a small spinner for crappie, large mouth and blue gill so thought I hooked a log or something at first). Drag worked perfectly and landed the cat. I have both reels mounted to Fenwick rods and the combo feels super balanced and I can feel every strike. I've used for over a year without issue and would definitely recommend.!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Smallie from Short lived Not worth the $$ for a mid price range reel worked great for a couple months, and now it's not as smooth as the supremes anymore. Thought it would have lasted more then a year..

Rated 1 out of 5 by anglerpete from Junk, Look elsewhere I purchased this reel for the opening of the Pennsylvania Trout season. When I got out to the stream I noticed that the reel did not and will not lock. There is no way to prevent the reel from back spinning. I only wish I would have saw this before I was at the stream.
