Pflueger is known more for its spinning reels than its baitcasters.

This reel comes in two different models. These have 6.4:1 and 7.1:1 gear ratios. It can hold 145 yards of 12-pound tested line.

We really liked the anti-reverse bearing in this product. The types of bearing are there to allow drag to kick in right away when a fish bites. Without this bearing, the reel handle would be able to spin away allowing the fish to run.

Most reels these days have this bearing, but this particular product had the most instantaneous activation.

Overall this is a very responsive and easy to cast. Many users have reported it as a good option for beginners for these reasons.

One thing we weren’t crazy about:

This product’s durability could be better. The feel of this baitcaster is a little flimsy.

There have been multiple reports of breakages.

This product is covered by warranty for one year. This warranty is void if the reel is used commercially.
