Rated 5 out of 5 by krak best spinning reel i own
I would recommend this reel to the fishermen that fish all day, WHAT A DIFFERENCE it made because it is so light weight. i have several pfluegers and this one is worth the money. for someone who doesnt fish but a few hours a month, i would go with the president but this reel feels amazing, handles fish perfectly. the drag works like a dream. i have had a lot of fun with this reel. i mostly use for bass fishing, i have it paired with a medium light carbonlite rod

Rated 1 out of 5 by TheClutterbucker22 It Died
I took this Reel up to Northern Ontario, Man am i happy i brought 3 different combos because the gears on this reel just died they ground together and it made the worst noise I've ever heard from a reel. it began by skipping chucks on the gears when there was pressure on it then after i finally brought the fish in, it wouldn't even reel

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vladster333 Best reel I have ever purchased
I have been fishing since I was three and this is the best reel I have ever purchased! Great value for the price and fun to fish. This reel is just as good as a daiwa that would cost 500 dollars for the same features. My favorite part is the wide spool that feels like an angel picks up your line and throws it an extra 30 yards. So overall it is a great reel and the best reel I have !!!!!!!!!!!

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.
