Pflueger offers two undermount spincast reels.* The 5-bearing/9-oz President model uses 4/6/8 line, while the 2-bearing/5.2-oz Trion model handles 2/4/6 line. I bought the PRES6USCX (listed but not pictured) and haven't tried the TRIMSSCB.
Using the trigger became intuitive after the first few casts. I would not classify this reel as an "entry level" because of its advanced features, weight, mounting and price. This reel's technology and heavy duty construction makes it a long-term keeper.
Whichever line/rod combination I used, this reel gave me long smooth casts and precise targeting every time. It's dual pickup pins and gearing were quick, smooth and precise. With 4# and 6# lines, I found this reel works best with bait weights starting at 1/4-oz to 3/8-oz.** I didn't experiment with the 8# line. The spinning rods I used were 5'6" to 6'9" in various actions, and they all performed well.
This reel's retrieve rate is in the ball park for most spincasts. Pflueger only hints at a maximum drag weight, but I found the quick-to-adjust side mounted dial will go from zero to more than enough for it's recommended line weights.
It has adequate spool capacities, a bit longer than most. Re-spooling a fresh line was quick, easy and economical. Switching spools is unnecessary À and doing so is not fool-proof.
For a spincast, this reel is top of the line. It did everything it was designed to do. I had no performance issues whatsoever. Any problems I had were my own fault to begin with, and the fixes were the usual À frustrating but uncomplicated.
Mono Line Capacities in yards: 4/110 6/90 8/70
Gear Ratio/Retrieve Rate: 3.4:1 / 14.5"
Actual Reel Weight: 9.00 oz
Pickup: dual titanium pins
* Undermounts are hybrid reels with similarities to both spincaster and spinning reels. First time anglers and those with small hands or short fingers might find any undermount troublesome to handle.
** For lighter bait weights, use the Trion.
