Rated 2 out of 5 by kvdbssmstr from Good reel, poor service ability The Orra SX is a nice reel, I own the 7.1:1 model. I enjoy it for all around fishing. It is very smooth, really good line capacity, and my favorite thing about it is the weight. You can cast this all day and not feel it. Balances well with most rods. The only problem I have is I cannot seem to find a way to open the Sideplate for service on this reel. Whether it is not meant to be opened or is just something I'm missing, I don't know. But I won't purchase another Orra SX 2 because of this reason, I do love Abu Garcia and have owned and will continue to purchase Abu Garcia reels, other than this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg from Very impressed! I had been a Quantum fan for nearly 20 yrs. now, and always admired the Abu Garcia line of reels, esp. since the intro of the Revo series. My first baitcaster I learned on years ago was an Ambassador. I am the budget guy, but love the top end equiptment, although sadly never could fork out $200-300 a reel. I owned several Quantum Codes and earlier ACS models, but purchased an Orra SX this year... I LOVE IT! The quality and smoothness are vastly superior for a reel under $100! It's much more compact and ergonomic, lighter and palmable. I'll be replacing all my reels with Abu Garcia including spinning reels. Now all I need are a great 7.1:1 and a 5.1:1 baitcasters, and a 20 and 10 size spinning! ;-)

Rated 3 out of 5 by BillJ from Second review of this reel This is my second review of this reel, a follow-up if you will. The Orra started out as a great reel but I have been having an issue that has yet to be resolved. The anti-reverse bearings are not functioning properly, at least I believe the issue lies there. Whenever I get my bait hung up or set the hook on a large fish, the reel handle gives out and starts to go backward. I know the bearings are not stripped and I have even sent it in for repairs once and the issue still remains. I know this reel isn't exactly Revo quality, but for 100 dollars, it should not be having this issue. It should also be noted that mine is the original revision and not a second revision which supposedly has upgraded bearings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeauxTigers from Great Buy My Orra SX has been through a year of heavy use and has definitely impressed me. I'll pick up my Orra just as readily as my Revo S's, and it feels equally at home in my hand. The pitch centrifugal brake system is fantastic, as is the all metal construction. Casting performance is very comparable to that of the Revo S, and i have a hard time telling the difference between the 2 while fishing them. After much searching I'm convinced there is no better reel than the Orra SX in it's price range. I plan on picking up a high speed version for a frog rod in the near future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jonathan from Worst reel I've ever owned I have 2 orra sx hs and they are the 2 worse reels I own. One has a broke shaft on the spool and my repair man has been waiting over 6 months for a new spool. The other reel has been used less than 10 outings and the anti reverse is starting to slip. For a 100$ reel I was expecting it to last longer and hold up better than it has. I have all revo gen 3 reels and they are by far the best reels on the market. The orra doesn't even seem like it's made by Abu Garcia they feel cheap and are of poor quality. I would never recommend this reel to anybody novice or pro!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skeeter from Best reel that ever touched my hands. The Abu Garcia Orra SX has the easiest and smoothing casting in a reel you could ever ask for. With the Orra SX i have been able to cast worms into the wind and not backlash without gearing down the spool and brake system. The brakes system is easy to access and the brakes do not pop off and fall in the water. the spool dial has an easy access whole in the cap to lube up and keep your reel well maintained. The bearings in a Abu Garcia reel are super smooth and have shown themselves what they can do for me. crankers and spinnerbait users dont be scared away by the 6.4.1 gear ratio I can crank this reel all day and not get tired. This reel is probably going to outlast yourself, and I will be buying two more Orra SX and a Orra inshore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ethan from Great reel with one small problem This is a fantastic reel and i am very happy with my purchase, it has handled a diverse amount of lures with ease and casts like a dream. The ease of access to to internal workings of the reel is great and makes maintaining it a breeze. As much as i have used it i have loved it with the exception of one thing. Every time i have taken it out of of the handles has come loose and fallen off, while it easy to repair it is quickly becoming an annoyance. Overall it is a great reel and i look forward to using more Abu Garcia products in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MaLachi29 from Good for the Fair Weather Fishermen I've used the Orra sx throughout the summer for bass and smaller channel catfish. The reel feels solid and preforms well under normal conditions. After being used the rain, both the smoothness and the casting ability of the reel had suffered greatly and had began making clicking sounds while casting. These problems later went away after a good cleaning and new lubrication after the fishing trip.
