Pflueger President MS Spincast Reel
Pflueger President MS Spincast Reel
Price: $38.09
6 used & new from $32.75

4.0 out of 5 stars CAUTION: Product image may be wrong, June 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
NOTE: This product is MS model (spinning reel style with finger trigger), but the image for the product when I bought it was the MC model (casting reel style with thumb button).

NOTE: Pflueger has discontinued this model, so buy it quick if you want it.

I bought this for my young son to start out with. I use spinning reels rather than casting reels, so I prefer that my son learns with a spinning-type reel, rather than the casing type thumb button reels that children's rigs are equipped with. For what it is, it is a great little reel.
- The anti-reverse is instant and rock solid
- The drag is smooth and easily adjustable, and the lightest drag is suitable for the smallest panfish
- The trigger type casting release works great, and very little torque on the crank is required to re-engage the spool
- Retrieval is smooth and tangle free
- The micro size is perfect for little hands

The only down side to this reel is that the very small "micro" frame/spool size means that the spool diameter is very small. This means reduced line capacity (not too big a deal for the type of fishing this is designed for), exaggerated line memory problems, and that casting will never be as efficient as with a larger diameter reel.

I own several full-sized Pflueger Supremes, and have found the quality and durability to be top notch (better than Shimano at he same price point).

I paired this with a St. Croix Premier 36" Light ice fishing rod for my two-year old, and will move it to a 54" ultralight when he gets a little bigger.

Bottom Line: Great reel for little hands, especially if you want to set up your little fisherman with a spinning-type rig or one of your own ultralight spinning rods. If you are a full-sized person, I would strongly recommend that you go with a 2000 sized reel for your ultralight rig instead. You'll get better casting with very little added weight. One exception: This would be a great ice fishing reel for pan fish, since the casting is not an issue for ice fishing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality and value, June 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
At six feet long, these are much more convenient for those who like to use their device while charging. The Micro B connector fits securely in my devices, and the cloth wrap looks attractive and feels sturdy. Strain reliefs at either end feel secure. Can't beat this cable at any price, so at around $8 it's a great value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Review of Kindle version, not of Melvilles's masterpiece, January 8, 2008
I own the Penguin published version of this book as well as the Kindle "Penguin" version. While MOST of Melville's "Leviathanic" work is here, there are some serious omissions and problems with the Kindle version of this publication. Here they are, in the order they occur to me as I write this:

1. There is no cover art
2. There are none of the very useful diagrams and drawings present at the back of the actual Penguin publication
3. There is no table of contents (This is VERY annoying in a book that begs frequent reference to various chapters, especially one already divided into 100+ chapters)
4. None of the textual emendations are enumerated
5. There are MANY textual mistakes, including wrong words, repeated words and other typos
6. The glossary from the Penguin edition has been eliminated and the Kindle stock "OAD" Dictionary is nearly worthless
7. The explanatory notes from the Penguin publication has been omitted (especially vexing given the hypertext possibilities of the Kindle)

Whether this is your first time with this seminal work, or you just want an electronic copy for your portable library, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS RENDERING. Overall the Digireads "Penguin" version feels as though it was carelessly rushed into being.
