Event Article: 2007 ICAST Reel Coverage


ICAST Coverage Day 1 (Reels) - Better, Lighter, Faster, Cheaper (continued)
 

Pflueger - Patriarch: Each year we are amazed with what we see in the Pflueger booth at ICAST. Their reels since the first introduction of the President baitcast and spinning reels have taken off on the right course and the first baitcast reel we would like to highlight is the Patriarch.

 

Introducing the high-end Pflueger Patriarch

 

The Patriarch looks amazing! This reel pays great attention to the details and design of each and every part from the handle to the spool and throughout the entire body of the reel. This reel features 10 double-shielded stainless steel ball bearings, one-way clutch instant anti-reverse bearing, Ultimate Brake System which combines centrifugal and magnetic brake cast controls, a titanium-plated side plates, titanium line guide, machined, ported, and double anodized aluminum spool, carbon fiber washers, lightweight aluminum frame with aluminum handle side plate and palm side, dual soft-touch knobs, and it comes with a neoprene reel cover/bag.

 

Stunning details all around

 

The Patriarch 64WLP will be 6.4:1 gear ratio while the 71WLP will be 7.1:1. This stunning reel will retail for $199.

 

 The new Asaro baitcast reel

 

 

 

 

 

Asaro baitcast: Here's another nice offering from Pflueger. The Asaro, a low profile baitcast reel, features seven double-shielded stainless steel bearings, one-way clutch instant anti-reverse bearing, a patented six-pin adjustable centrifugal brake system, machined, ported, and anodized aluminum spool, and much more. The Asaro is available in two models, one with a wide spool and one with a standard spool, retailing at $119.

 

The Asaro comes in low profile standard and wide models

 

  

Supreme MGXT Spinning: Moving onto the spinning reels we have a few offerings but would like to mentioned ones that stood out the most. Last year Pflueger introduced the Supreme spinning that was magnesium based but this year they have the Supreme MGXT. The Supreme MGXT is a lightweight magnesium body and rotor system featuring nine stainless steel ball bearings, one-way clutch instant anti-reverse bearing, heat resistant carbon washer, double anodized machined aluminum spool that's ported, aluminum side plate, Sure-Click bail, large stainless steel bail wire, and a neoprene reel cover that can be used to protect the reel when it is still mounted on the rod during transportation. There are four models in this series ranging from 25 to 40. Retail price for the Supreme MGXT will $130.

It comes with a reel bag that can be used while the reel is mounted on the rod

 

Asaro spinning: With the Asaro low profile baitcast we have the Asaro spinning reel. This amazing spinning reel features a lot of goodies such as eight stainless steel ball bearings, corrosion resistant stainless steel main shaft and components, anodized aluminum spool with titanium spool lip, Sure-Click bail system, and much more. Though all the design features you see here are on the higher end reels, the Asaro spinning only retails for $50. How they do it? Well, instead of a metal frame they went with a graphite body and rotor. This not only reduced the cost but also reduced the overall weight of the reel. Now you have a great value reel that sports many of the high-end features.
