    Pflueger is what I use now. The president for bass fishing and the trion round for catfishing, model 66 is the big one with the bait clicker. Way better than the Abu and I have used them for years. With Pflueger you get way more than your moneys worth. I am glad I found them.

    I hope I am wrong but with Pflueger advertising a lot now I think they will have to get more money. I will pay more, their that good.

    You could spend 400.00 for some baitcasters for bass but most are not as good as a president baitcaster at 130.00

    I have not tried the contender yet but I will.

    I've got a President spinning reel that is awesome. It is very, very smooth and the drag is great, too.
