Different Models

The Pflueger President comes in five different models, which are the 6920, 6952, 6930, 6935, and 6940. These models differ in their monofilament capacity, braided line capacity, line Recovery, ball bearings, maximum drag pressure, and finally, their weight.

Stainless steel, Graphite, and Aluminum

This whole reel, including the rotor, is crafted from these three materials. They make the reel very durable. Moreover, the reel is very light as the lightest model only weighs 5.9 (oz.) while the heaviest model weighs 10.9 (oz.).

The handle is crafted from Aluminum. This makes it extremely durable, as it is capable of withstanding many hours of usage. It is not impacted by rainy weather or dust, as nothing will stop it from performing.

Soft Touch Ergonomic Knob

This feature makes you more comfortable when gripping the knob. The company went to great extents to make fishing as pleasant and as comfortable as possible. The knob is shaped in a dimpled knob design. It fits perfectly at your fingertips.

10-Bearing System

This is the same bearing system used in other models. It does not need to be changed as it functions perfectly. Corrosion-resistant stainless steel ball bearings are used in this system, and they provide you with an excellent and smooth retrieval. However, since this is not a sealed bearing system, you will have to wash your reel whenever you fish in salty water.

Sure-Click™ Heavy Duty Aluminum Bail

This feature is a trademark for almost all of the Pflueger reels. It generates a click sound that signals that the bail is open and ready to cast. However, it is recommended that you manually close the bail after casting to give your reel a longer life span. The bail is constructed from heavy-duty Aluminum, which will make it last longer and be stronger than any of its predecessors.

Braid Ready Spool

This is a beautiful addition to this model. The braid ready spool is made from Aluminum, which makes durable. It allows braid to be directly tied to the spool using a series of vertical rubber grommets that will enable the slippery braid to grip the spool and without needing to have mono backing.
