Through advanced materials and manufacturing, the Pflueger Patriarch Spinning Reel features lightweight handling and top-of-the-line durability. The feather-light magnesium body, rotor, and side plate are protected with proprietary 3-step coating to provide premium corrosion resistance and durability. Its solid titanium main shaft is 30% stronger and 43% lighter than comparable stainless steel shafts, and the carbon handle with EVA knob is 20% lighter than comparable aluminum handles.
The 10-bearing drive system features corrosion-resistant, stainless steel XCR ball bearings, Pflueger's highest performance, shielded, and friction-reducing bearings. The result is a drive system that stands up to the harshest conditions and always delivers smooth, reliable retrieves. The always-lubricated, always-smooth, sealed carbon drag system and durable titanium-coated line roller are sure to bring a fish to a stop.
