Pflueger Arbor Spinning Reel
Select from the models below
Pflueger Arbor Spinning Reels are designed to handle todays superlines. Whether an angler decides to use monofilament, fluorocarbon or braided lines, the Arbor's "large arbor" design is perfectly suited to the unique demands that these lines place on a reel. The "large arbor" design advantage is the combination of the larger spool diameter and the short oscillation stroke. Both of these factors combine for great line management and casting characteristics. The larger spool diameter also means that the line has less wraps around the arbor for a given distance when compared to traditional spinning reels, which allows less coils and a lot less line twist.
Pflueger Arbor Spinning Reels use a hybrid aluminum body system, which combines an aluminum frame and sideplate with a graphite rotor. This design eliminates flex and creates a lightweight yet rigid reel overall. These reels also feature carbon fiber drag systems for top end performance, even under heavy loads with hard charging fish. Seven stainless steel ball bearings and one instant anti-reverse bearing give the Arbor Spinning Reels a smooth feel with instant hook set capabilities.
The braid-ready spool, that comes mounted on the reel, has bonded rubber strips on the arbor that negate the need to spool monofilament first. The spare spool is a regular arbor spool and is designed for all monofilament. Now you have the ability to have one spool of braided line and one spool of monofilament at your disposal.

Arbor Spinning Reel
I bought this reel last winter after having some frustration with my old spinning reel bird-nesting while wading for fall walleyes. So I started looking for a wider spool to help reduce line twist issues.
After some research I purchased the Pflueger Arbor in size 30. The deciding factor was the low gear ratio to help me slow down my cold water retrieve.
I have had this reel out about 2 dozen times and it has worked flawlessly. Minimal line twist/coils, good casting distance, and smooth drag. I would (and will) purchase another of these reels.
I would buy this product again

Great drag, real smooth

Very smooth, great drag and line capacity. Glad to see the revival of the large diameter spool. Will be putting it to the test on NY's salmon and steelhead very soon.

I was attracted to this reel because of the large arbor.I matched the 7430 with a 8'6" JDM Eging Rod (Japanese style squid fishing rod). This rod has the newer small diameter low profile guides. Even though the stripper guide is half the diameter of the reel arbor I had no problems whatsoever tossing 1/4 -3/4 oz. lead with 8 lb mono or fluoro line. Line slap? What line slap? This flies in the face of conventional wisdom that the stripper guide should be close to the same diameter as the diameter of the arbor. In fact I was casting a bit farther than some of the other guys on the beach with a helluva lot more accuracy. Eleven barred surf perch an hour and half before high tide is proof that this reel/rod setup iz da bomb! I only stopped fishing because I too cold and hungry to continue.
Good reel so far
Just used this reel for a long weekend of largemouth fishing. Improved casting distance over my Pfleuger President was able to accurately cast long distances and get to the fish. Looking forward to many good outings with this reel.
