The Pflueger Patriarch Spinning Reel is extremely lightweight, tough and durable. The magnesium body, rotor, and sideplate offer an ultralight package. It is protected with a proprietary 3-step coating to provide enhanced corrosion resistance and durability. This reel utilizes high-end titanium for a stronger and lighter shaft design. It features a skeletonized aircraft-grade aluminum spool with hybrid carbon arbor, which adds to its superior balance and handling. This spinning reel comes with a carbon handle with durable EVA knob to make it lighter as compared to aluminum handles. Smooth performance is assured thanks to nine premium XCR corrosion-resistant stainless-steel bearings. This Pflueger Patriarch Spinning Reel features permanently sealed carbon drag system and twist-preventing titanium-coated line roller. It has an instant anti-reverse bearing for solid hooksets with zero backplay.
