That is a great little reel. I'm pretty sure that you will feel the same way. They are on the heavy side, but they are built like a tank. I have several of them. I found a couple of the limited edition Pfleuger Presidents on sale at Cabelas recently. They are a nice looking little reel and lighter than the standard President.
9 lake records, 3 all tackle, and I only added this because Rick did and I have more.
