Rated 5 out of 5 by Oggi from Best reel in it's price range Really happy with my Orra S. I've been using one for a little over two years now and have been pleasently surprised by its power and durability. I fish a lot and don't do nearly as much maintaining as I should; all I do is disassemble after each season and grease the gears, but it still casts like a dream. I keep mine loaded with 10lbs 100% florocarbon and fish it with my 6'6" Vendetta and managed to land a 15lbs Musky and dozens of 3-6lbs Pike. Best spinning reel I've owned under $100.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous 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 Anonymous 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 4 out of 5 by Whitewater from All around great feel at a nice price point! I've had this reel for about 3 years now and it's become my go to reel when fishing for trout in the creeks, rivers and well pretty much anywhere. Cast is real smooth and although a light reel it give plenty of confidence when fighting the fish. Looks real nice too. Only downside is that the reel handle has a tendency to fall off. My daughter was using this reel in a pond and dropped the handle in the mud, I ordered a new one but must be missing something else because now when I give the handle a strong turn and let the spool spin, the handle will back itself off and come loose. Normally I'd toss the reel and get a new one but I've come to like this one so much I'll be taking it in for repair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Brady24 from Quality issue I bought this reel to replace another spinning reel while at the lake a few weeks ago (7/24/15). I used it for the second time out of the package on 8/22/15 and the bail wire broke right above the screw. Was extremely disappointed with the quality of the reel. I did not think the entire body of the reel was plastic outside of the spool and inner parts. I take good care of my equipment as well and was shocked when It broke as I turned over the bail wire to make a cast. I have been an Abu Garcia fan for quite some time but this has left me with an unsatisfied feeling of the product purchased.

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.
