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 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 Tyler322 from Broken bail arm I bought this spool about a year ago and I loved it at first but today I caught a 6 pounds bass and because of the weight of the fish the bail arm completly snapped off

Rated 3 out of 5 by Superbadbrown85 from Drag is slipping I bought an orra s20 and veritas rod and reel combo. I've used it twice, both for very short sessions. I'm using 10lb braided line. I love the way it casts and has a very good feel. The only issue I'm having is that I have the drag on as tight as possible but am still able to pull line out. I'm not sure there's something wrong with it or if when the dealer I bought it from spooled it he didn't put the reel back together properly? But it doesn't seem right. It's as though the drag is slipping. I like everything else about this rod and reel. But I am wondering if there's something I'm doing wrong.
