Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been looking for this reel for a long time. It's one of my favorites. It was my first reel I started fishing with. Thank you. John VT

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value at This Price ! Haven't used it, but seems of fine quality. The jury is still out on the bail flipper, but quality seems good, however time will tell, as bail springs are usually an Achilles heel, for spinning reels. Short on line capacity & big for an UL, this will be a backpacker and 'planter' trout reel for me, where the fish don't grow too large. Overall seems of good value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST starter reel. I was given this reel for my 10th birthday and 15 years later is still being used for my panfishing addiction. Little care and loads of use haven't stopped this reel. Just bought another one, and for the price you have to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought the same brand/product 20 yrs ago from a local store. It is a low priced reel for pan fish fishing. Excellent quality for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my two favorite budget reels. Lasts forever with great performance you would expect from Shimano. Why spend $50 or more when you don't have to?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent reels for the price. I put this reel on a 7 foot light action rod with 6 Lb. Silver Thread line. This setup works great for crappie.

Abu Garcia® OrraTM Inshore Spinning Reel is lightweight durability for hard-cranking action!

The perfect combination of light and strong for the inshore saltwater angler! The Orra Inshore incorporates an aluminum reinforced C6 carbon body design that seamlessly combines the X-Craftic™ gearbox with a C6 carbon body. The result is a lightweight body that houses gears in perfect alignment. And the strength isn't the only feature you'll love.

A machined aluminum braid-ready spool design prevents superlines from slipping, allowing braided line to be tied directly to the spool without the use of a mono or taped backing. Rocket line management provides better casting control of all types of fishing lines. Working in tandem with the Rocket spool lip design, this system actively controls the line coming off the spool during a cast for improved control and accuracy. All finished off with a large, flat EVA handle knob that puts you in total control.

Cast a line for these features:

  • 8 stainless steel HPCR™ bearings + 1 roller bearing provides increased corrosion protection
  • ARC-6 (Aluminum re-inforced C6 carbon) body design combines an X-Craftic gearbox design with a C6 carbon body, which gives a lightweight construction that houses gears in perfect alignment
  • Rocket line management system provides better control of all types of fishing lines
  • Rocket spool lip design allows better control of line coming off the spool
  • Machined aluminum braid ready spool allows braid to be tied directly to the spool without any slip
  • Slow Oscillation provides even line lay with all types of line
  • Carbon Matrix™ drag system provides smooth, consistent drag pressure across the entire drag range
  • Everlast™ bail system for improved durability
  • Everlast bail system for improved durability
  • Stainless steel main shaft and components for improved corrosion resistance
  • Flat EVA knob provide greater comfort and durability
  • Designed for saltwater applications
