Pflueger® Patriarch® XTLow Profile Reel is rated out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Old Salt 89 from Best Low Profile Reel Available I have owned my Patriarch XT for a year and could not be happier. From it's compact size and ease of setup for any fishing style to its exceptional line capacity, this is one of the best reels Pflueger has designed. The braking system allows for quick changes for different applications, and greatly reduces the chances of a backlash. The size and weight of the reel, when matched to the appropriate rod, allows you to fish all day without fatigue. The 6.4:1 gear ratio, makes this a great all around reel for everything from crankbaits to top water poppers and soft plastics. If you were a fan of the Pflueger President Low Profile, you will floored by the performance of the Pflueger Patriarch XT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buckner from LOVE these reels! I switched to Pflueger Patriarchs for my tournament fishing after buying one as a replacement for a Shimano Calais, and I cannot tell you enough the quality of this reel and the castability on everything from weightless worms to big crank baits. Would love to see a higher speed version, but all in all, these are awesome, especially for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jack44 from Incredible. Pflueger Patriarch XT, I ordered this reel after several months of research. I must say that I could not be happier with my purchase. I mated this reel with a Fenwick 7' one piece HMX and spooled 30# spiderwire on it. I practiced casting after carefully reading and re-reading the instructions on setting the breaks. The fit, finish and overall feel of the reel is second to none. The easy of cranking is glass smooth even with a 12" large mouth bass on the other end. The cast-ability is incredible. Long accurate and repeatable. After changing lures from spinners to crank baits, adjusting the mag break and spool tension is a breeze. I've found that using the pin (centrifugal) breaks are needed as designed when casting bait under 3/8 oz. I use three pins, every other one when doing so and take them all off when moving to 3/8 oz lures. I've had two back lashes that were minor and were 100% my novice mistake. This is how I learned to use the pin breaks. Overall I give this reel an A+ for looks, feel, fit & finish, mechanical function and design. The best part is the sound it makes when you cast, it's amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JH2676 from Great Reel!! Pflueger manufactures fantastic reels. Pflueger doesn’t seem to get the advertisement the other manufactures receive for some reason. Over all the reel has a solid feel and extremely smooth for both casting and retrieving. Don’t shy away from Plfuegers other models as well. All are low profile and extremely well built. Term “ you get what you pay for “ doesn’t pertain... Pflueger offers reels at all price ranges that excel in quality and rivals/exceeds all other well known manufactures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rodneylama from Best reel for the $$$ I’ve been fishing the Pflueger Patriarchs now for 5 years ... best reel for the $$$. I keep adding a few a year replacing older reels. This year I’ll be throwing all Patriarchs. Still haven’t had to send one in for a repair yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Osborn from Need 7.1-1 left hand model! I've been slowly making the shift back to shimano as Pflueger has been a little lacking for my needs as of late. It's a shame. High quality products for an amazing price. Not for us leftys unfortunately!
