Pflueger Patriarch Spinning Reel 4.4 5 36 36
JDM QUALITY AND DESIGN As a finesse fisherman, Daiwa and high end tackle user, I was surprised how light the reel was, how smooth it is, and the drag works exceptionally well. I use this reel all the time. I also clean it after every trip (with all my equip) and oil it every few months. the value for $199 compares well with some of my reels that I paid much more for. I have caught some large bass on this and never had any issue with the reel. It has now replaced my heavier and more expensive spinning reel that used to be my "go to" reel, mainly due to the lightness of the reel, and the increased touch I have with it. You know its a great reel when you don't even think about the reel when you are using it. September 11, 2013
Patriarch I read several pages of reviews and was actually a bit surprised to find negative feedback/Reviews. I fish five days per week, weather permitting. I used Pflueger Supreme XT 35 and 40's on St Croix Mojo INSHORE, a D - Ballistic and KVD Quantum's. Keep'em clean and drag plates free of garbage and they are like new still (Three years for some). Most recently I got my wife a new Avid Pearl St Croix and put the Patriarch on it with my standard Tuff-LINE XP PRO 30# Braid. I took it School (Bass) fishing on the St Johns while she was at work the first two times it was used. (Side note, I research Braid a lot and I count Casts along with a lot of other info when making a decision about what line to use) I made between 450-500 casts each day with her pole/reel. (St Croix out did their selves with this Rod). No Issues with the performance of the reel. Because of the need to SPEED Retrieve, the gear ratio is not perfect for this type of school fishing but the casting was smooth and "as long" as my Long-caster. The reel was taken and used on our vacation to Louisiana. Caught Several Drag Burning Red's on those two days. Back home on the Indian River, she has three Black Drum over 10 #'s (and they burn drag) and several Trout. I took it apart and could find very little evidence of any use on the drag plates...gears, I cleaned out and re-greased. One last thing, take the Spool off your Spinning Reel. Look inside the reel (right down by the bottom of the shaft) to find a SMALL hole. This hole is there so that WATER passes through. So, most are engineered to allow water to get inside. This goes for the majority of Low to 240.00 range. Look at the PRICE for a Reel that does not have a hole...it is engineered to keep WATER out, very few. You CAN put a little grease on the end of your finger and PLUG the hole if you'd like. August 4, 2013
Buy something else I have the 9540 on a med/hvy st. croix mojo bass rod. The reel was great and very smoothe for the first 100 casts or so, then the whole bail spring mechanism broke and would open only 1/2 way and not close. Under the arm through a gap you could see plastic pieces and the spring floating loose. This was the first day of use and only 2 fish were caught on it, it was brand new. I have cheaper pflueger reels on some other rods that see a lot of abuse and are still perfect. A $200 dollar reel should be of better quality. July 27, 2013
Great...until it gets some water inside I've used it to fish streams for trout. Taken good care of it, but could not avoid dropping it in the water (or, simply, splashing water over it) a couple of times. Started grinding hard and coming to a halt almost immediately after each time. When I opened it up to clean and grease it, I discovered it took significant amounts of water inside. Once I removed the water/grease slime and re-greased it, it worked smoothly again. Tends to have similar issues when you fish with it in light rain. You'd think a $200.00 reel should be somewhat waterproof. June 23, 2013

it goes on the bottom of the foot of the reel. It helps it stick to the rod seat without any shifting. eliminates possible scratches to your nice rod and reel too

A: 
The stickers are supposed to be applied to the reel foot prior to mounting on the rod. It prevents the paint on the reel foot from getting chipped or scratched when you tighten it down on the rod. It also helps the reel stay nice and snug while mounted on the rod. It's not necessary but there if you want it.

A: 
I have both
no complaints of either

if you got a used stradic for much less
or a big sale go for it

the patriarch is smoother
but the stradic has been upgraded since my model

the patriarch is lighter

looks don't have anything to do with it
but the new white stradic does not do it for me, the patriarch is stunning

I have had the stradic for one year
and the patriarch for 4 outings
so expect it will be durable and last
the bail wire is very thick with a real
positive click
the up and down action exposes air
which I would think allows it to dry faster

Had my choice narrowed down to the same 2 reels. Looking for a good ultra-light for trout fishing. I've had such great success with Pflueger in the past. These come with a spare spool which i use for braided line and bass fishing. Even the smaller model has plenty of power for bassies. Also, I got the Patriarch for $155 so my choice was easier. Could not be happier with this reel. LOVE it ! Very smooth and great drag. By far the best spinning reel in my arsenal. Will soon buy another as soon as I have the extra $$$

A: 
Go with the Patriarch. It's all metal, has a more solid feel, and has a little bit more cranking power. Especially when your reeling in baits that have resistance like crankbaits or when your reeling in a fish. I wanted to love my Stradic Ci4 but it lacked all the attributes of the Patriarch that I just mentioned.

I am really liking the 7'6" class by St Croix, Mojo In-Shore. The Work this rod does when inside the last 10' bringing a big fish in is UNMATCHED, in my opinion. You really feel in control. I have caught from a 3" bass to back-to-back 7lb 7oz Large Mouth and up to a 35# Black Drum and have no complaints.

I would suggest getting the new shimano crucial spinning rod. It is a good stiff rod that would be great for river fishing. Also the rod would look great on the reel. I hope this answer helped you in anyway

A: 
This depends on the styles of bait that you are fishing. If you are mainly throwing crankbaits and spinnerbaits, a 6'6" to a 7' MH to H would probably work well. If you are mainly using finesse baits, the same length may be appropriate, but look more towards the M range.

To stop line twist after casting out your bait flip the bail over by hand and not by turning the reel. If you watch your line by turning the bail over it adds line twist..

I loaded my 9530 with 20lbs Sufix 832 Superline. This is my first attempt at braid. So far I have had no problems caused by the reel line managment system. The twists or wind knots were caused by me.

A: 
Absolutely not. The truth is no spinning reel will cause more line twists than any other. As long as you spool the reel correctly(have the line spool facing the correct way when you load the reel) there will be no problems. Something that does cause line twist is reeling while the drag is being pulled. I've used about everything under the sun and have never had one twist more than another. I have had them unravel after a cast, but that is due to loose line or over-spooling.

I did have some issues with line twist but hopefully this was due to fishing in-line spinners with out a swivel. I will try with some crank baits and see how it does.

My experiance because of the over sized spool, line twisting memory is reduced. Remember to always put your line of choice on correctly and use the correct line for the type of fishing you intend on doing.

My friend had the shimano sustain while i have the patriarch. We have compared reels and we both agree that mine is the better one of the two. The quality of this reel is great. The only thing that was better about the shimano reel was that it could hold more line.

I only have one Shimano "Sedona" It is compairable in price range to my Phlueger Supreme. I also have a small President. In my opinion the Shimano sound like a crane next to both of them and weighs considerably more. I have no fear of putting any of my Phlueger's quality against any reel manaufacturer. Buy the Patriach and you will never be sorry.
