great trout reel paired the 6925 with a daiwa presso for a trout set up. i've got a previous generation 6725 on a daiwa spinmatic. both are very good. highly recommend for ultralight mono line and ultra light tackle. drag is very smooth and reliable. reel is light compared to some other shimanos around the same price November 23, 2014
great reel when I was looking at the massive selection of reels at bass pro in Calgary. I didn't have a clue what to look for in a reel or even how much to spend. the guy at the counter pointed me to the Pflueger and said its your best bang for your buck. he was not wrong at all. it is so smooth and I have not had a problem with it at all. November 11, 2014
Excellent reel Switched from Shimano to Pflueger reels some time ago and have had nothing but good to say for them. Only reason I had to buy this one is a friend accidentally knocked my favorite rod and reel over board and we could not snag it. October 28, 2014
Smooth as silk I have purchased one in every size. I use only this reel because it is sooo smooth to crank even when I have a big fish on. My partner tried mine one outing and the next day ordered two for herself. I use this reel in fresh and salt water. I rinse it with fresh water and spray it with reel oil to maintain it. I HIGHLY recommend this product! October 3, 2014

I landed a 36 pound flat head with the second to largest size and another 28 with the largest size. Not ideal situation took some time but it handled it. But the second to biggest size is a channel cat slayer thats for sure! and if a flat head strikes you can maybe land it although not ideal lol. I bet you could land bigger cats on these then a bill dance big river bait caster just because the drag and internals are better quality.

I bought the Bass Pro Micro Lite Graphite Spin/Fly Rod with the 6925 and it seems to be a great combo. I put 10lb. Fire Line on mine and it casts a mile. I also have the 6935 on a light medium rod and its a nice setup too. I thought the 6920 was a little small. I would rather have more reel power and the 6920 only has 7 ball bearings. Hope this helps.

A: 
The 6925 is a better reel, by far than the 20. THe 20 is simply too small, by design, to be smooth.

I personally like a light action rod for panfish becasue it gives me the backbone to get a crappie out of a treetop and allows me a chance to land an average largemouth in river current

A: 
Depends...for brookies & smaller stockers, use a 20 with ultralight rod. For rainbows or Browns who are a little larger, go with a 25 and medium light rod. If you expect big fish like 18-22" Rainbows, consider the 30 series. All of them are very lightweight and a lot of fun to catch with.

Details: 
My son and I have two rods for vertical jigging for walleyes: St. Croix Avid AVS60LF (6', light power, fast action# and a G Loomis IMX SJR 721 #6', light power, fast action#. We have used a Pflueger President 6730 with 10 lb Suffix832 and a 12lb fluro leader on both rods. Overall, happy with the set ups.

But, the 6730 weighs 9.1 oz. I am wondering if a new President, either a 6920X or 6925X, would be better and offer more balance because they are lighter.

Any comments or recommendations? Other reels I might consider if I am changing?

I would have to say no because some walleyes can reach great size the bigger the reel the easier it is to bring in the fish. I personally use the 6935 reel with a 6 foot 6 inch ugly stick to catch large mouth bass weighing in over 5 lbs with no trouble at all.
I will submit this photo of a bass caught this past August weighing 6lbs 15 ounces by digital weight and released to be caught again.

I have had a 6730 for about 2 years and it broke just after it was a year old.

If it were me, I'd look at different reels. They Pflueger just doesn't seem to have the durability, but it was a nice reel while it lasted. And for a light rod, I'd go 25x size.

I have both. Initially, they feel the same, but after only a year of fishing about 4 days per month, the Trion is already starting to wear out. The Presidents still feel as though they just came out of the box.

A: 
If it's for a child or infrequent fisherman, the Trion is fine. If you are a passionate fisherman or land large fish on occasion, the President or Supreme series will handle the stress of fighting a large fish with less grinding. The President/Supreme are also lifetime type reels, if that matters to you.

I've used both now and I have to say, for the money you can't go wrong with the President. I've been using the 6935 for about six months now and it is honestly the best spinning reel I've ever used. Pflueger makes a great product.

The Trion is a good entry level reel, but the President is MUCH more reel for the money, and should outlast the Trion by a factor of two or more, based on my experience with both reels. There's really not much of a comparison between them.

A: 
The President is a bit tighter and a bit more solid. The styling is also a bit more attractive to me. But, the bottom line is that they are both excellent reels: The top in their perspective price categories. It comes down to how often you use the reel and for what specific purpose. The President has more BB and may be a bit stronger, but both reels are excellent values. I own both and have been happy. My suggestion would be to purchase the Trion GX7 if you fish less frequently, but get the President if you are on the water a lot.

I have a 6935 on a 6' Med Light action Berkely Lightning rod. Its a tad too stiff for crappie and bream, but is an awesome river rod for fighting spots in the N GA rivers and for working lightweight finesse worms.

If you want more bulk for larger lures and line, go with a 6' med rod, but dont expect to be able to throw anything below about 3/16 oz

A: 
Depends on species, cover in lake, and depth. In general, I'd suggest Powerpro 15 lb (4 lb mono equivalent). However, if it's a deep lake or they will be running to heavy cover, consider 25 lb Powerpro. Gives you great feel for what the bait is doing on descent. ALSO, consider using a 4' floro leader in clear water.

A: 
Drop shotting is a "finesse" technique. Therefore, the "feel" involved is often subtle, and very light. This means that a lighter rod and reel is an advantage, especially if you fish long days. Therefore, I'd get the 30 size, and load it with 10 or 15 lb. Power Pro or Tuff Line, or maybe one of the new smooth braids (less guide noise). 20 lb. wouldn't be a bad choice for snaggy areas, though. Tie 2-6' of fluoro for a leader with a double uni knot, and you've got no-stretch, and tremendous feel for the bottom as well as light or subtle bites. Just my 2 cents' worth.

A: 
Suggest a 35 series for bass - especially hauling largemouth out of cover. If you're targeting smallies or smooth-bottom lakes, a 30 series is sufficient. All come with 1 braid-ready spool and this helps for pulling 'em out of cover.
