Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from Eh I have three of these realms because I fell in love with them. But after time they become a lesser quality. I had one for a year and yes the drag and the smooth reeling action were still good but the bail snapped on me when I opened it. Like what the heck. I didn't put stress on it or anything. And it wouldn't cast because the bail would keep closing on me. I bought the cardinal sx20 for 50 dollars at the time and now im very mad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fishinman from good reel I bought 2 cardinal sx 40 last Jan. Would have given 5 stars but the handle screw has a cap on it that has broken off on both, thru normal use. " just hard plastic" exposing the internal parts to dirt ect. Needs to be a more durable material.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NickB81 from Not what they used to be Needed an ultralight setup while im traveling for some crappie and small trout. Always been pleased with Abu Garcia products until now. The SX 10 felt like an old time pencil sharpener grinding out of the box. I greased it up a bit, (helped a little), and hit the water. Not terrible, not bad. Headed out again this week and the grinding just got worse and worse over the course of 3 hours. I understand it's a value reel, but I had $10 Shakespeares growing up run smoother after years than this thing has in 3 weeks. The $25 line I put on it makes it not even worth sending back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Weighmaster from Versatility Was looking for anew additional spinning reel for tournament fishing. Reel worked great on medium heavy rod. Used for skipping docks. Was so good that when my steelhead float rod reel broke, I tried my Cardinal and it performed well in extremely icy conditions. Great investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BOWHUNTMAN from VERY GOOD SPINNING REEL AND PRICED RIGHT. This reel is light , smooth and dependable. If you take care of it , it will last for a very long time. I choose to use these over high priced fancy reels that do no more than this reel will do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by diamondjim5 from Disapointed in reel and company! I bought this reel less than a month ago and the bail bolt came loose and fell apart so it would not cast or reel in.
