Rated 1 out of 5 by Phil Not smooth at all... As someone else wrote "I want to love the Orra, but am getting the same persistent grinding noise/feel other reviewers mentioned." This is so disappointing to me as I am very much a beginner and I just need my gear to work right out of the box. Someone here suggested lubricating the wheel to fix the problem, but I have no clue what kind of lubrication to use or where to put it, and frankly I dont want to spend any money on something that is supposed to work right away. I am located in Denmark and would like to be refered to someone who can help me out. So sad and disappointed. September 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Will Great reel out of box I recently purchased an orra s40 and loaded it with 15lb berkley braid. On the first day out i was trolling a small spinner over a reef and hooked 30cm goatfish. The reel performed amazing and soon had it in the boat. I then caught a 40cm queenfish. The drag worked a treat. We ate the fish that night! September 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave518 Well worth the money! I purchased the Orra S with a 7' M Vendetta pole several months ago, and I am utterly impressed with the combo! I originally bought it because of the value and for the unique matching colors. I have landed several Chain Pickerel 18"+, two Northern Pike 24"+, three Small-mouth Bass 16"+ and two Large-mouth Bass 18"+ with no problems whatsoever! I use black braided line on it, which not only looks really nice on the reel, but it preforms very well! The retrieval speed is great for swim baits, and the reel is extremely smooth every time. I have recently become interested in buying a Baitcaster and there is no doubt in my mind that it will be an Abu Garcia! If you're in the market for a new pole or reel, do yourself a favor and buy something here! I love their products, and I have already recommended them to friends and family! August 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 ABU Quality I have been using ABU reels for over 40 years, I just started using a spin reel for my Kayak fishing. I started with a cheap $14 Japanese reel cause it was given to me. I finally decided to upgrad to better real. I decided to go with the trusted quality of ABU I have been use to all these years. I was not disappointed. Just like other ABU products I have used in past the reel was a little tight when new just needs breaking in. Good reel for the price. August 30, 2012

A:Should work great. I have this reel and its beastly strong. Frame has like no flex and drag is amazing
Details:I received this as a gift with a Bass Pro Bionic BCB66HS 6'6" rod. Is this a good match for bass fishing in the Northeast?
A:The rod is a little short for my liking, but great in brush and thickly wooded banks. Also easy on the wrist and hand in long-term events, particularly with the light little 20 size. I would recommend 10 lb. Braid in order to get enough on there to handle the unexpected.
