The International Convention of Allied Sport fishing Trades, better known as ICAST, is the world’s largest sport fishing trade show. It is the cornerstone of the sport fishing industry, helping to drive sport fishing companies’ product sales year round. ICAST 2009 hosted nearly 7,400 members of the global sport fishing community who came to conduct business, network with members of the sport fishing industry and see all the latest innovations in gear and accessories. Reviews of the new Pflueger reels were very positive.
“Each year we are amazed with what we see in the Pflueger booth at ICAST. Their reels since the first introduction of the President baitcast and spinning reels have taken off on the right course and the first baitcast reel we would like to highlight is the Patriarch.
The Patriarch looks amazing! This reel pays great attention to the details and design of each and every part from the handle to the spool and throughout the entire body of the reel. This reel features 10 double-shielded stainless steel ball bearings, one-way clutch instant anti-reverse bearing, Ultimate Brake System which combines centrifugal and magnetic brake cast controls, a titanium-plated side plates, titanium line guide, machined, ported, and double anodized aluminum spool, carbon fiber washers, lightweight aluminum frame with aluminum handle side plate and palm side, dual soft-touch knobs, and it comes with a neoprene reel cover/bag.”
