Rated 1 out of 5 Not Up to AbuGarcia Standards I currently have an Abu Garcia Ambassador, couple Cardinals, Soron, and this Orra S. In fact, I have only owned Abu Garcia reels for about 10 years; have also given several as gifts. I want to love the Orra, but am getting the same persistent grinding noise/feel other reviewers mentioned. The Orra bail is improved, but the retrieve is oddly fast (I should have seen that in the specs) and that seems to cause line problems. I've never had line issues with any other Abu reel. The Cardinals are better performers and have a much lower price. Given that this is Abu's only spinner at this price point, my next reel at this level will probably be from another manufacturer. I would not buy this reel again or even give it as a gift. July 14, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by gotbigbass What I was looking for I saw a few reviews on here that were very negative toward this product. It almost kept me from buying it, even though I am a huge Abu Garcia guy. Well, I am glad I bought it. It casts smooth, reels smoother, and the slightly higher gear ratio makes it easier to get the slack out of the line and has resulted fewer missed bass. By far, for the money, it is the best spinning reel I have ever owned. No complaints at all. I love it and I am about to guy buy another one right now. July 13, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Born2Fish Love this Reel I have been using this reel with a Vendetta rod. The setup is perfect and looks and feel great. The only issue I have is that the crank handle is loose and there is no way to tighten it up. The handle seems to be riveted to the gear shaft and does not have a way to tighten it. Other than that... what and awesome product July 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Great reel for the price Very good made reel and stylish. I use braided line and never had a single problem. I can cast this feel just about as far as my baitcaster and just as easy. My buddy was amazed the other day on how far this reel would cast with a texas rig and pitching it. I have it on a vengence pole which is a very sturdy accurate pole. With this combo, since late spring, I have felt more fish and caught more bigger fish than ever. This will not be my last abu garcia rod or reel. July 11, 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.
