Rated 4 out of 5 by convoy357 Has A Few Bugs
I am a big fan of Shakespeare/Pflueger fishing gear going way back to the '70s. I currently own 4 Pflueger spinning reels and I have owned several others in the past. I bought the Supreme XT because I liked the new features with the bail and the lightweight frame. I got the 25 size and mounted it on my new St. Croix ultra light rod. It performs very well as expected, but it does seem to have a few issues that I have not noticed on my other Pfluegers. First off, the way I cast I often hold the line in the fingers of my left hand and flip the bait or lure out there. This reel has an oversize handle that seems to stick out at an odd angle and the line catches on it ALOT. If I make that cast 50 times it will hang up on the handle about 15-20 times. Very annoying. The other thing I noticed is that the line occasionally winds around the drag adjustment knob which creates a nice tangle to sort out. Never had that happen on any of my other Pfluegers.

This real has done a good job so far. I like the "air" style bail on it and the lightweight design. Doesn't cast as good as my Sradic C-14 4000 model. If I were to buy another real, and I will someday, I would go back to Shimano Stradics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by largemouth12 Awesome Reel!!!!!
This reel is amazing the price is a little high but it is worth it. Me and my cousin went fishing and caught a 15 pound catfish, 3-6 pound striped bass and largemouth, walleye, and carp. This reel is a power house and is a great buy so check this reel out if you can.

i have a 6 footer and i got the orra s 40 and it was the perfect size. i use 15 lbs braid and 8 lb mono and the reel operates with the same high quality. it just depends on what your preference is really, but i would go with the s 40
Most reel manufactures have official websites and have this info on them about their reels . Im sure that in the future these spec.s will be offeered on BassPro for all reels . Until then look for other sources online or other reels with similar spec.s with this info here on BassPro website . Good luck and tight lines.
I've used 30 and 15lb Power Pro on my 9240 with good results, no twists or birds nests all year. As a side note I fish everyday and my reel is shot its been repaired twice and still doesnt feel right I went back to my abu stx. When it work it was great though and I did take care of it.
I would not use heavier than 8/30# braid on it . A size 30 supreme is really a very nice all around size reel though . The 40 is really only a reel I would use for say carolina rig and wormin. But you can use the 30 for that too but you can finesse with the 30 and not the 40 . If you have smaller reels great but if not the 30 is the better all around reel . If you need more power than a 30 then a good baitcaster will serve better anyway . I personally dont even buy 30's I only buy 25's anymore or smaller but I do have one Shimano Stradic 5000 FH series that is a little bigger than a 40 series reel and I do like it for channel catfishing . Hope that helps out in some way .
my old 9025 supreme xt has a 5.2/1 gearing and it's retreive rate is 30in. per turn and since this newer version(the 9225)has the same gearing ratio I'm really reluctant to believe that the print (22.4 in.) on the retreive rate for this reel is correct. I truly hope it is because I would love to have one at that retreive rate for crappie fishing. Could you call the Pflueger people and verify that retrieve rate for me please. Thank you BP .
the retrieve rate has to do with the size of the arbor as well as the gear ratio. Perhaps the arbor on your older reel is a little bit larger than the ones on the newer reels. this would explain the different retrieval rates.
