Rated 2 out of 5 by 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 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 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 from Super budget reel! I was a bit leery as the price is quite low, and usually if you want quality you have to pay a bit more. Not in this case. I really enjoy using this reel, compared to what I was using, it is smooth as silk. Caught some nice bass using it and it performed very well. I spooled it with 12 lb Cajun line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little reel Had the sx40 for trout fishing here in New Zealand for a good few seasons now. Awsome wee reel, smooth drag, very strong (have fallen on it many times over slippery rocks etc) and great bang for buck. I normally go through a reel per season and this sx40 is on its 3rd now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good strong reliable reel It says this reel is specifically for freshwater... I've caught 11 snook on this reel just during the summer with 10 pound mono, nice size snook too. I haven't used it for freshwater a lot, but the point is it's a good reliable reel, it has good line capacity for a smallish spinner, strong interior and if you keep it clean and treat it good and all that good stuff it will last a long time

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 2 out of 5 by from sx 30 - disapointed in the quality i thought the abu sx30 with a 6`-6 medium rod was going to be a good choice for bass fishing , after a month of fishing the finish is easily scratched the reel is starting to clunk and the shaft is pretty sloppy , very disappointed with the overall quality
