Phlueger President vs Daiwa Fuego LT
« on: July 19, 2019, 12:19:28 PM »

Hey everyone so my dad is looking for a rod and reel setup and since I was suggested the Daiwa Fuego LT on my previous thread that's what I recommended to him. From what I read it's a pretty good bang for a buck reel and he doesnt want to spend much. My brother just keeps drilling phlueger president into his mind. My brother is also the one who is trying to use frogs with his ultralight reel and light 6' rod... anyways what would you guys reccomend even if its neither of the two. Thanks!

I haven't used that particular Daiwa model but I do have both Daiwas and Pfluegers.

When it comes to spinning reels the Pflugers are my reel of choice.

I own some of the President models and they are very solid reels for the money.

Pfluegers are a solid choice, I have an older Trion spinning outfit and I like it a a lot. I have only heard good things about the Presidents and have thought about getting one myself.

The President is a bullet proof reel with an excellent track record. The Fuego is a newer reel with an excellent following so far. It is considerably lighter and has mag sealed bearings for saltwater use. The Daiwa is almost double the price.

My buddy is a saltwater guide and has used the President for years. He loves them and says they last a long time even with everyday use. He picked up a deal on the Fuego when it first came out and now loves them too. He's got 3 or 4 of them now. All feel great and handle being beat up by his clients.

I don't think that you could go wrong with either.

Maybe let price be the guide?

New guy here but if my .02 means anything, for spinning reels I would take the Phleuger President to war and back.  I know this sounds silly and maybe not important to you, but all things being equal I just love the positive "click" I get with my President from opening my bail and knowing it won't close itself on me.  Also that it clicks closed with even a soft turn of the handle and never gets stuck in that half-way state between closed and open, if you know what I mean?

I'm a big spinning reel fisher (about to try Baitcasting soon) and there's just something about the President line of these reels that check all the boxes for me.   But again, and this might be silly to someone else, that sexy positive-click smooth bail action on the President sets it apart for me.   Can fish all day with mine, and I often do!
