Pflueger® President® XT Low Profile Reel is rated out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrew1 from new favorite bait caster I almost only fish spinning reels because it's so much easier to get a quality spinner at a good price point than a quality bait caster. This is easily my new favorite set up for throwing soft plastics and topwater baits. It handles smooth, comfortable to use for a full day on the lake, and pulls a ton of line per turn. I spooled it with 125 yards of 20lb braid, have yet to have a single backlash as someone who is pretty inexperienced with a bait caster. I've had a blast using it for 1/2lb smallies to 15lb pike, and everything in between. Highly recommend it as a first bait caster because of the ease of use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Foolinbass from Great Reel for the Price Point I bought this reel about a month ago and finally had the opportunity to use it. The reel is a great bargain at the price point with solid features, sturdy components and better than average performance. The reel is not as smooth as I expected from having other Pfleuger reels, but the attention to detail with the grips and magnetic control outweigh the slightly rougher spool action. At this price point I don't believe you will find a better all around reel. I would highly recommend this product to anyone, I am an avid bass fisherman and tournament angler and have already put this reel to good use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trottski from Great all around reel for the price I fish atleast once a week and have had many reels over the years. Picked one of these up in February and have to say I'm very happy how well this reel performs and in my opinion out performs reels that are $30+, great, easy, and smooth knobs. Won't find a better baitcaster for this price point. I have been using pflueger's for over 11+ yrs now and have 2 president's, a limited edition president, this one as well as a supreme baitcaster and they all have hundreds of fish caught on them and have held up amazing this one i can tell is going to be another legendary reel from pflueger's line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by climber54 from Easy to use and handle. Bought this a few weeks ago and I am enjoying it more as time goes on. Price was great with discount. Easy to use, handles great, controls are positioned correctly with size of reel. The gear ratio works well. I was looking for a 6:1 but this ratio works great. No problems so far. I switched from braided to mono and it seems to work better but I will probably switch back later after I get use to the reel more. Cork handles are nice addition. I have it mounted on a Fenwick Elite Tech MH rod and it is working quite well. Looking forward to fishing season with this bait caster. ps I also own 2 Pflueger President spinning reels a 20/25 and I am very happy with them also. Good work Pflueger

Rated 5 out of 5 by jodef53 from Best Reel Period for under $100 I bought my President XT baitcaster a year ago on Amazon. I bank and pond fish from 2-5x a week for largemouth bass and have used this reel extensively. I finesse fish, throwing weightless plastics with no problem at all, as well as many other techniques. I just pair it with the appropriate rod and catch fish. Just adjust the spool tension knob and magnetic brakes to your lure and setup and fish. You don't have to spend time babying this reel. It's durable and hasn't developed any issues period. I clean, oil and grease it once a season and done. You won't find a better product at this price point! Period!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Simon from Excellent Reel! Lucked out and got one from Amazon at Christmas time, as they were impossible to find anywhere else. I've been casting it in the yard and it's the smoothest I've used. What a fantastic reel at this price point! No other maker can touch this piece of equipment. If it's durable as well, Pflueger's got yet another classic to add to it's impressive list...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Veteran 2004 from Smooth and easy to control casting! I have used this company my whole 43 years of my life and named every reel I've had because of how much I loved the smoothness of the products! But wish they would come with stickers or something I can promote on the FLW BFL Tournament trail.
