For a lightweight baitcasting reel, try out the Pflueger President XT Low Profile Baitcast Reel. One of the best surf fishing reels, this baitcasting reel allows for more power and control than others. The Pflueger President XT Low Profile Baitcast Reel has 9 corrosion-resistant ball bearings, plus one roller bearing, which makes casting super smooth.
A magnetic braking system and externally adjustable brake settings make this reel easy to control, and limits issues with tangled line. The Pflueger President XT Low Profile Baitcast Reel can cast long distances, and a rubber knob allows for long hours without causing discomfort in your hand.
A 7.3:1 gear ratio ensures fast return, but is less equipped for large fish. This reel is especially lightweight, but still durable and extremely smooth, making it a popular choice for anglers.
