Pflueger rods

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone used a Pflueger rod? Cabelas has a president spinning reel and Pflueger IM8 rod on for $80--one heckuva deal! Just wondering if it's a decent rod.

Don't know about the rods, but I bought a Pflueger President spinning reel last year. I am extremely pleased with it. the price-value-quality ratios was quite were good at the time. I have it on a medium spin rod 6ft. It balances that rod and handles very well. It also has a very nice smooth drag.

Now I see this deal and am kicking myself. With a IM8 graphite rod and the reel at $80 it ought to be a fine setup.

This was my first Pflueger reel, out of many other brands that I own. I must say they got my attention.

I am going to start buying Pflueger stuff just for the name.. Just Say it! .. "Pfluegerrr"" Say it three times now.. "Pflueger, Pflueger, Pfluegerrrr"" What a sweet freaken name for a rod or reel! Beats the crap out of "Shimano". Man, I need to get out of this office today!

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
