Rated 5 out of 5 by the walrus what a great reel
I got this president 3 years ago ,and fished steelhead & salmon many times in that three years ,and finely had a problem with the drag this past year,you only catch so many big fish on a reel and don't care how much you pay for them.i have payed from $50 to $200 for reels . BYE FAR THE BEST FOR THE PRICE ..... but I you put black tape over the holes to keep dirt out of reel & water so it would not freeze up in the cold !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wabashcat This Reel is a work horse.
I have this reel in three sizes and use it for crappie and bass for crank baits as well as bobber fish! And use it for my catfish in the 40 series on ugly stik rods , I haul them on 4 wheeler and my boat they take the abuse very well . I wish Pflueger would make this reel again in the 50 size like the 3750 , well worth the money ! easy to open up and grease and clean !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bassin70 Best $60 for fishing you will buy!
Best budget reel on the market. This will be remembered as a classic. Spend the extra $20 bucks and buy it over the less expensive guys. It feels like a $150 reel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Girlsfish2 A bit dissapointed
I purchased this reel a few months ago, and used it three times before it began to corrode. the tackle shop said that it was from the saltwater. This was very surprising to me since the write-up on the product said that it is suitable for saltwater. Well, I am trying another one for the record...you see I really like the smooth and quite casting that I get from the Pflueger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike F Awesome reel
This reel is great for the price. It is very strong and smooth. I took this reel up to my local river and paired it up with a medium action ugly stick. It was great and I hauled up big bass and catfish with ease

Reel works well but for the Money a Shimano at the same price is better/smoother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackson President review
I have owned one of these for several years. My advice is not to put it between a piece of flooded timber and your boat while you are retrieving a lure from an overhead branch. These reels can actually break. That is the only way to stop its performance. Great 10 bearings for the $$. I upgraded to a shimano then bought a President for my son. Very little difference in the 2 is minimal; basically the grip on the handles and thats it. Highly recommend for going from cheap equipment to high performance without the $150 cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mojo angler great real
I now have four of these reals. 3 I bought from Dicks. plan to add more onces they get the other model in I want. I do wish that dicks would have all the models on this presidents line. I want the 35 model but haven't been able to get it at the local store. it's a great real at a fair price.
