Article Media Click images to enlarge +
The Pflueger Patriarch Low Profile has been redesigned from the ground up to combine the technology and performance you expect in a top-of-the-line reel with an extremely lightweight design and sleek performance.
With the latest technology in low-profile reels, such as carbon-infused sideplates, a carbon fibre handle and all-aluminium frame and gears, the Patriarch outperforms its competition ounce for ounce, says Pflueger.
It adds: “Every effort was taken when designing the Patriarch to cut down on weight, while maintaining the reel’s quality performance. A carbon fibre handle, coupled with EVA grips, reduces weight significantly while contributing to a smoother and more comfortable handle.
“The Patriarch’s C45 sideplates are infused with carbon to cut the weight, while increasing the strength and durability of the reel. It also features an aluminium frame and aircraft-grade aluminium gears to reduce weight and make it resistant to wear and tear.
“Most importantly, it maintains the quality performance expected in a top-tier reel despite its much lower weight compared to its predecessor,” continues Pflueger.
The braking system features both centrifugal and magnetic brakes, and the all-new cam locking, non-detachable sideplate allows anglers quick access to the centrifugal brake while making sure the sideplate does not become separated from the reel.
This allows fishermen to quickly adjust the ultimate braking system’s settings to an array of combinations without taking valuable time on the water.
The Patriarch boasts a max drag of 20lb – around twice that of most other reels in its weight class, says Pflueger.
Other features include: 10 double-shielded stainless steel ball bearings; instant anti-reverse; double anodised, ported, machined aircraft aluminium spool and titanium line guide.
