Abu Garcia® Orra® S Spinning is rated out of 5 by 48.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I was initially excited to receive this reel as a birthday present. However, upon removing the Orra S from its package, I encountered the same grinding noise when I turned the crank that others have mentioned in their reviews. In addition, upon placing the reel in the reel seat of my ugly stik lite, the piece connecting the reel to the reel seat broke in half. I never even had a chance to bring it to the water. Save yourself some stress (not to mention the $79.99 it cost) and purchase another reel. I recommend the Penn Fierce or Abu Garcia Cardinal. The Cardinal is the same high quality expected of Abu Garcia, and has a much smaller price tag to boot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lee from Stuck with it ! I purchased this reel needing a reel to cast some of my lighter baits. I mounted the reel on a 7" Abu Garcia vendetta rod as this is one of my favorite rods to use. This made for an awesome looking rig, but the casting performance of this reel is terrible.The line tries to twist. I have tried several different types of line, even had the reel professionally spooled, but the result hasn't changed. I fish several times a month and as a loyal customer of Abu Garcia all of my rods & reels are proudly branded with their name. I still have my receipt but have thrown away all packaging to the reel. I wish I could just return it and buy another Pro Max instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad reels I have four of these reels that I was given as a present last Christmas. They felt great at first, and then after a little use they one by one started locking up and grinding like the bearings were trying to lock up. I am a avid fisherman and use lots of different kinds of reels during a tournament season. i know how to take them apart and work on them, so I dissaembled them and regrreased and oiled them several times. They do work, but they are far from being as smooth as they should be.I am very disappointed with these reels, which is unfortunate because I have had very experiences with all of there products until now. I hope they will make this right.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Zippy from Grinding, Grinding, ...Crunch! I've never used an Abu Garcia product until recently when I bought a matched Orra rod and real set. I am very happy with the rod. However, the S30 reel would intermittently bind while retrieving a lure. This real had only been used a handful of times before this happened and just the other day it seized - awesome. If this binding and grinding issue wasn't there I would give this reel a high rating and recommend it to my friends and local fishing club members, but I simply cannot do that. I have replaced the S30 with a another company's reel and except for the money this reel cost me, life is good again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Phil from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yakWaves from Excellent reel for the price point. I've always been a fan of Abu Garcia products, and this reel is no exception.. I purchased this reel to use with a 7' M-F Vendetta rod. and the combo is great. The casting is smooth, and the distance is excellent for the type of fishing I do. I've paired it with a braid/fluorocarbon leader in 20lb test and had no problems. This is primarily for use with soft plastics, but I"m going get another SX to pair with this 7' Vendetta Rod to use with spinnerbaits/crankbaits and move the Orra-S for use dropshotting with another 6'9" ML-F rod.
