Father’s Day Gift Guide 2017

If your dad is a fishing enthusiast, a new reel for his favorite rod is always an exciting gift. The Hybrid Body System in the Pflueger Purist Reel incorporates aluminum in critical strength areas, like the stem, to maximize strength. Graphite is used in less stressed areas to cutout unnecessary weight. This means that you will get a strong, lightweight reel with smooth operation every time he sets the hook. If you are familiar with the technical aspects of fishing reels, here are some of the main features:

  • 10 Bearing System – Corrosion resistant stainless steel ball bearings
  • Sealed Carbon Drag – Sealed system, always lubricated, always smooth
  • Soft Touch Knob – Soft touch rubber knob provides excellent grip and comfort
