Trion® TRIONSP20X Spinning Reel
The Pflueger has been manufacturing good quality fishing rods and reels that are reliable and of great value. But this moment is the spotlight on the Pflueger Trion spinning reel. First released in the 1990s, this spinning reel is perfect for beginners and tight budgets. The new version has a lot of cosmetic upgrades, yet the reel's functionality has remained genuinely reliable, adding a couple of engineering enhancements. The primary thing is the reels' low cost has remained similar. This is undoubtedly an excellent reel for price!
The Pflueger Trion is smooth and reliable, ideal for anyone who fancies an ice fishing reel that will work great in a freshwater environment. With an industrial, sturdy design, it is made to last.
It arrives in a box, and you get a decent quality spinning reel that features four steel ball bearings and an aluminum spool. The single aluminum spool that this spinning reel comes with is double anodized, so odds are it will keep on performing with you for quite a while. It includes a soft knob, and there is no grating sound in it because it highlights a high-quality thread.

Performance and Construction
The Pflueger Trion doesn't flaunt a great deal of technology in its construction. It's a short reel with the basic spinning reel parts. Sure click bail, seven ball bearings, removable aluminum handle, strong aluminum spool, titanium roller, soft-touch grip, threaded main gear for no-slip performance, and smooth multi-disc, felt-oil drag system.
It feels sturdy in your hand. The 20 size weighs 5.9 ounces, and you can fish smoothly straight out of the box. The drag changes effectively on the fly or during a battle with its top-of-the-spool design. The bail clicks open and closes simply on the cast. The line comes off the reel well because of a beveled edge.
Handles multiple size baits well
Using different baits with your reel is a wise choice, and the Trion spinning reel will deliver your choice! It is always an advantage to choose reels that can handle a multitude of uses.
You can opt to use itty bitty 1/32-ounce crappie jigs on the TI20X reels. You may also toss a little bitty Rapala Shad Rap on this spinning reel, then fish a jerk bait the following week and afterward toss a floating worm on it the next week and a drop shot after that.
Since this reel operates smoothly, it places more drag on the retrieve than you are used to. It can truly play with your sensitivity and how well you interpret bites. It retrieves lures smoothly and casts extremely well.
Not just your ordinary spinning reel
The Trion has a spool that isn't braid-ready, meaning you would almost certainly require a monofilament linebacker so that the line will remain on the spool.
Other than that, the spool is made of Aluminum. And is the same if not the very same in design and function. You can't deny its durability because it is corrosion-resistant and lightweight.
It may look basic, but it has a sleek silver appearance that some anglers are big fans of. Don't underestimate its simplicity, though. Its anti-reverse switch can also fight fish, not just relying on its drag system for tension.
The body and the rotor are made of graphite. This is incredible since it implies the reel will be more grounded and hold up to being banged around.
