Rated 5 out of 5 by JRZFishing One of my favorite reels!
I got this for my 7ft St. Croix Legend Tournament rod and I absolutely love the combo. The reel is pretty light, coupled with the super light rod this feels unlike anything else I've had.
All my spinning reels (i have 7 now) are pflueger and thats because they're extremely reliable, simple to use, sturdy and powerful. This came with two spools which is great because I keep braid on one and mono on the other for quick changes, also the one spool has rubber inserts so you can tie your braid directly onto the spool! I prefer that over the hassle of putting backing on.
I cant wait to try this out in some salt/brackish water situations! Its been amazing in freshwater! 5 stars!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alphahawk Outstanding reel!
I bought this in the 25 series after deciding to step up another level in gear. I will keep stepping up until I think I find gear that can hold up to the amount of fishing that I do...5 days a week....52 weeks a year. That is a lot to expect from a reel. When you think about how many times you will open and close a bail on a 10 to 12 hour day on the water it is no wonder after fishing with a reel for 2 years the bail spring feels weak. This is a superb reel in all areas except one and it is a minor detail and that is why I am not giving it 5 stars. I fish almost exclusively 2# test line and I do not like the way the line lays on the reel. Using 1/64 baits I lose a little casting distance compared to the 1000 series Shimnao reels when the line gets a little low on the reel. But these details do not keep me from recommending this reel to someone. It is light weight, strong, and has a very smooth retrieve and probably the best drag on a reel I have ever seen. As one reviewer said " I am a Shimano man all the way". Well I am also but it was time to try something a little different. I have a Shimano Stradic and this reel is every bit as good and is much lighter. The lighter weight of this reel makes a huge difference after casting for 12 hours. Only time will tell how this reel will hold up. Catching a couple hundred big White Bass in the jumps in the summer really slams these small reels. Reading reviews one really needs to understand that any reel can come out of the box bad. You simply return it and get a new one. If the next one you get does the same thing then there is a pattern. That is why I take a reel out of the box in the store and put the handle on and play around with it. If I hear some grinding or clicking I ask for another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spanishmackerel excellent reel
I'm a mostly inshore saltwater angler an i'm not going to give up my shimano reels at all but i was looking for a fast retrieve reel for working spoons and jigs for spanish mackerel,bluefish and small kingfish. I have never owned a Pflueger but have seen them for years.This reel is awsome! the drag super smooth, nice easy grip on the handle for all day crankin', top quility bail,roller and over all constuction. I matched it with an 8' custom made spinning rod not one tangle or air knot fishing 10# braid in one week of hard fishing. Handled bonitas (little tunny) up to 14#s and spanish up to 6#'s both of which will smoke any drag out there. My advice "get one"!

i own two of these and i love them i have had one of them for about 2 years and has never let me down my only fault ot them as with any smaller spinning reel flourocarbon holds alot of memory on spinning reels but i love flour so do yourself a favor and use braid with a flouro leader

i have a 6 footer and i got the orra s 40 and it was the perfect size. i use 15 lbs braid and 8 lb mono and the reel operates with the same high quality. it just depends on what your preference is really, but i would go with the s 40
Most reel manufactures have official websites and have this info on them about their reels . Im sure that in the future these spec.s will be offeered on BassPro for all reels . Until then look for other sources online or other reels with similar spec.s with this info here on BassPro website . Good luck and tight lines.
I've used 30 and 15lb Power Pro on my 9240 with good results, no twists or birds nests all year. As a side note I fish everyday and my reel is shot its been repaired twice and still doesnt feel right I went back to my abu stx. When it work it was great though and I did take care of it.
I would not use heavier than 8/30# braid on it . A size 30 supreme is really a very nice all around size reel though . The 40 is really only a reel I would use for say carolina rig and wormin. But you can use the 30 for that too but you can finesse with the 30 and not the 40 . If you have smaller reels great but if not the 30 is the better all around reel . If you need more power than a 30 then a good baitcaster will serve better anyway . I personally dont even buy 30's I only buy 25's anymore or smaller but I do have one Shimano Stradic 5000 FH series that is a little bigger than a 40 series reel and I do like it for channel catfishing . Hope that helps out in some way .
my old 9025 supreme xt has a 5.2/1 gearing and it's retreive rate is 30in. per turn and since this newer version(the 9225)has the same gearing ratio I'm really reluctant to believe that the print (22.4 in.) on the retreive rate for this reel is correct. I truly hope it is because I would love to have one at that retreive rate for crappie fishing. Could you call the Pflueger people and verify that retrieve rate for me please. Thank you BP .
the retrieve rate has to do with the size of the arbor as well as the gear ratio. Perhaps the arbor on your older reel is a little bit larger than the ones on the newer reels. this would explain the different retrieval rates.
