Pflueger President Spinning Reel is rated out of 5 by 64.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Climate Gipsie from Reliable, smooth and lasts a long time. My wife and l fish Minnesota in the summer and Texas during the winter. Both of us have tried many spinning reels but favor the small model 20X because they last. They stand up to hard use all year long. We use small diameter braided line and catch everything from pan fish to Northern Pike on these great little President Reels. We can cast all day long with an ultra light set up. I think it is better than any reel in every way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grot from Excellent This reel is all you need for a great day of fishing. First off, I'm in my mid sixties and have been fishing for a long time. Bought and used just about every grade of fishing reels over the years. The Pflueger President is just about the best overall freshwater reel you can get for the price range. Love the heavy duty, solid bail wire, with the spring assisted click open and click close. Great bail system. The spool arbor is 'braid ready' and therefore easy to load with any type of line. The handle has the perfect curve in it creating a perpendicular alignment of the knob with the spool, resulting in excellent transfer of rotational force. Cliche, but this reel operates as smooth as silk. This only reel I like better than this one is the Pflueger Supreme XT. Recommend highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by broadriversmallies from THERE's a REASON ! There's a reason I see so many of these reels. My fishing is river fishing, and it's super tough on the gear. I don't have the budget for expensive reels, but once I switched to the Presidents I realized I don't have to spend tons of money on the quality required. They simply hold up for a long, long time.. And they hold up without compromising quality.. I have never NOT trusted this drag with a big fish on, I have never replaced a bail spring, and I have never had the gears clog up.. Don't know how they make this quality at this price...

Rated 1 out of 5 by jaiceris1 from bails closing on this years model I buy these reels every year but the two I bought this year have not performed up to the Pflueger name in my opinion. the bails are closing during casting. costing me a lot of money in lures. I am an avid fisher man who maintains his gear. I also have not had same issue with previous years models. I know its not my finger or weight of lure, because I still run same lures on previous years models and this never happens. NEVER. I have contacted Pflueger and await their response. So I will follow up this review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smallmouth hunter from Durable and dependable work horse reel I own 6 Plueger President Spinning Reel in various sizes. Not only are they good reels for the money, I have purchased several spinning reels which cost more than the President but did not work as smoothly and was not as durable. I have 2 President reels that I have been using for more than 10 years and they are still in great shape. I will never purchase another brand of spinning reel.
