Pflueger - The Choice of Champions

- Pflueger Medalist - Quality since 1881 - Champions Welcome -


Birthday gift from NN when she was in the States :-D Something you don't see much of in Malaysia. Quality and built wise, it may not match a Stella or Saltiga. But it's worth more than ALL my reels put together :-) It's my first ever fishing gift :-)

Here are the specs -

  • 9 stainless steel ball bearings, with pinion and main gear bearings fully sealed
  • One-way cluth instant anti-reverse bearing
  • Smooth sealed front drag system
  • Rugged aluminium body and anodized aluminium spool
  • Anti-twist titanium line roller :-o
  • Sure-Click bail
  • Machined aluminium handle with soft touch knob
  • Spare aluminium spool
  • On/Off anti-reverse
  • Power knob

And here's their official website - Pfluger Fishing.

Here's an extract of their history - "Since 1881 the Pflueger name has been part of the fishing industry when Ernest F. Pflueger founded a fish hook company called the Enterprise Manufacturing Company. When his son Earnest A. Pflueger took over the family business and founded the E.A. Pflueger Company, he expanded the company from a hook manufacturer to all aspects of fishing tackle & gear. In 1916 the first Pflueger Baitcast reel was manufactured in Akron, Ohio, and became a benchmark of the fishing reel industry. The Pflueger spinning reel was introduced in 1954. Over the years Pflueger continues to be one of the world's leading rod and reel manufacturers."
