Love this smooth lightweight reel. Even better than my President. Casts all day long, and the lightest full size reel I've ever owned. Think I'll buy another one.

Rated 1 out of 5 Defective product
Right out of the box, the bail was found to be defective. It separates (pulls out) from the roller bearing side. Paid a lot of money for this reel; truely disappointed.

I recently purchased this reel for a simple reason new year new gear. I am a die hard Abu fan and own a 104, 504, and Soron Stx all outstanding with no issues. I was going to get another Soron but the Supreme XT caught my eye. I went to the local BPS (mostly because if I buy it I want it now) and as soon as I picked it up I was sold. I own the 9240XT and Its lighter than my STX40 and so far has a more durable finish to it. The dag is very smooth from light to heavy and it cast very well. I have not had a chance to land any fish with it yet but I know it will preform well. I have this paired with a Grandt med-hvy 7' one peice (all my rods are Grandt, never have I used a better rod)and its lighter than my STX 40 on a Grandt 7' med rod.
Just on feel and simple testing I would recomend this product as well as Grandt rods to any and everyone who wants the best but doesnt want to just pay for a name.

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.
