Does anyone know why people don't seem to like the Pflueger President, or the Pflueger Trion fly reels. The drag system is the same on some of the more expensive fly reels like Orvis, and Resdington. On some of these reels the spools actually interchange with each other. This makes me think Pflueger makes fly reels for Orvis, Redington, and probably some others. Anyone have any thought on this.

I like the Trion reels,good value.I have three 1912's and have used them for years.I wouldn't say they are made by Pflueger,they are contract reels made in Korea,that is why there are similar reels on the market.

you bring up a good point and question. Cant answer it..........lol........but just chatting here...... in lots of places its funny to see the markups when OEMs re-label products and the companies mark them up. If we had any tackle-related members here the insight as to who makes what for whom would be an eye opener.



Pflueger has endured and I always remind myself that a reel is just a line holder. As long as drags aren't locking up and reeels dont overrun the rest of the fight can be managed with a good ragg wool glove on my hand palming the reel.

Yep agree 100% gave up buying expensive new disc drag reels over 20 years ago. Always have the drag very lightly set and use my hand/glove to apply extra pressure when needed.
