Pflueger President Spinning Reels operation is based on 10 corrosion resistant stainless ball bearings, except the smallest 6920 model, which uses 7 stainless ball bearings. Such system provides smooth operation, low maintenance system and durability over time.
Some might wonder why roller bearings are not used - such bearings are even more durable, but they increase the price and often weight, too.
Reel's body and rotor are made of graphite, making the reel both lightweight and strong.
Drag system is made using stainless steel discs and oil felt washer, providing consistent drag and increased corrosion resistance of the whole reel.
Aluminum bail wire is relatively thick, and it is designed to be rigid to prevent any issues with fishing line.
Reel spool is made of double anodized aluminum, making the spool 'braid ready', allowing the braided fishing line to be tied directly on the spool.
Handle is also made of aluminum - it is lightweight and durable and in combination with soft touch rubber knob, provides excellent grip and ease of use. Pflueger President Spinning Reel can be used by both left and right handed fishermen - to change the side of the handle, one has to simply switch the sides of the handle and the dust cover, and that's it.
