Orra SX Combo
Best bang for the buck!
I have only had one other bait cast combo that cost more than this one. It was a Bass Pro Shops Rick Clunn set up that cost me $160 for the combo. It was by far my favorite until it got stolen along with 3 other combos including my BPS Extreme bait cast combo. I bought this Abu Garcia Orra SX with some ok expectations but it performs far beyond what I thought it would. I like this combo so much it played a part in my recent engagement photos. I plan on buying a few more Abu Garcia combos or at least some of the reels because this one is amazing! My next one will probably be a Revo!

Awesome but not perfect
Bought my Orra SX Combo four months ago. It has been the SMOOTHEST system I've tried, and I must have tried 50. Beautiful package too. You simply cannot go wrong with this. BUT, having said this, I just exchanged my reel for a replacement Orra SX as the line guide got jammed and would no longer okay the line. Hoping that that was a one-off. At any rate, I cannot wait to get back into the water with it!

I own four of these combos. I have been using two for two years and the other two for a year. I fish a couple time a week, nine months out of the year. I use these reels probably three times more than the average fisherman. These combos are very dependable and are great to fish with, smooth. I have had one rod break while trying to get it loose from a snag, probably user error. I have had the bearing under the crank handle get out of position on one and made retrieval difficult, but was an easy fix for anyone that can take the crank handle off and reposition the bearing properly. In short I have been impressed with the longevity of these combos for the amount of fishing I have done with them. They are all still working great. I hope this is helpful.

Great buy for the money
I was told about this from a friend that also wanted one so I got it. I was surprised on how good of a rod and reel it it. the rod is a little cheap but I didnt expect much. I highly recomend this combo over the black, silver, or pro max. Save a little more and buy this if you are thinking about another combo. You wont regret it. Love Abu Garcia and they really proved their craftsmanship.
