The Pflueger Arbor is a 1-piece rod with medium action. It carries with it a spinning reel which, by the way, is absolutely beautiful in its sleek stainless steel. The rod itself is made of IM-8 graphite, making it a lightweight rod. Of course, the only downfall with graphite usually is that it is a bit stiff. Well, this rod is on the contrary. The rod is sensitive enough to sense small bites. It also carries stainless steel framed guides, and a cork split handle, allowing for a comfortable and sturdy grip. What’s more, it also has a stainless steel hook keeper, which prevents your line/hook from swinging around when you’re transporting it. This could lead to some nasty snags on your body if you’re not careful.
At 6’6”, this rod is perfect for beginners. The spinning reel will take a bit getting used to, but once you hop over that hump, the rest is easy. This is a rod that will stay together. It is strong and will keep you out on the water for longer without problems. Fill the rod with a braided line.
Overall, this is a great first rod. Although the price is a bit high, with Pflueger rods, this price range is great because it’s a low price for a great rod. For beginners and avid fishermen alike, this rod will last you a long time.
One of the more important aspects of fishing tackle is not just the design, but the reliability and durability. One of the most frustrating experiences an excited angler could have is waking up early, driving all the way to the lake, cast a line, and then have the rod break on the first cast. When people spend money on fishing gear, they want it to last them a few good years at least. To make sure that this doesn’t happen to their customers, Pflueger fishing tackle is designed to last long and keep strong. This is the best thing when you purchase Pflueger rods – you know you are receiving something that will last.
