Rated 4 out of 5 by FishOn Salmon Pole
I picked this pole up for salmon fishing, but it's been great for all river fishing. Handles bass with ease and has a good cast. Doesn't break down, but still fits in the car.

by Jimmy LaRu Great rod for the money
I used this rod on a recent trip to Canada and caught several 5+ lb smallmouth bass and large northern pike. Stiff rod with great sensitivity as well as a great reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brantley Outstanding, at a loss for words
I purchased this reel and it came in three days.It is by far the smoothest most balanced rod and reel I have ever owned. If you are still thinking about getting this think no more you will be extremely satisfied

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff Great value, great feel, great product
I was very iffy about combos before purchasing this one. I recently purchased this and took it out a week later. Caught two smallies within my first five cast and let me tell you, you feel everything with this. The cast is smooth, and the retrieval feels like butter. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a great rod/reel for $100 or less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RevoS1978 Great way to go!!!!
I have owned this combo(7ft Medium) for about 6 months now and it has been flawless. I mainly use it for wacky rig senko worms but it is just light enough for drop shotting as well. My buddy used it once and fell in love with it and he is a hardcore Shimano guy. He had to get one as well and it paid off for him too! He nailed a 3+ pounder at the end of a tournament day. If you are going to buy a set up but don't want to spend a lot of money, get this one! Don't go spend $40 or whatever on an Ugly stick or anything. With a little more money you get a whole lot more rod and reel. This Orra S reel is still super smooth after all this time and I have to admit that I go fishing a lot! I also own much higher end rods and reels and this can keep up with them just fine. Abu Garcia has really put great products out there in the past year. Give them a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hasemanr Great Buy!!
I did not plan on spending $100 on a fishing pole/reel combo as I had spent $34 on a ugly stick combo and it was a good buy. Boy I am glad I went with the reviews for this one. It is the best pole I have ever had..very smooth, sturdy, good flex and great looking to top it off! I would recommend this pole to anyone and you will not be disappointed!

I bought the combo for the reel which I am completely satisfied with. The rod isn't the greatest, but I was pleasantly surprised with it as I wasn't expecting much from the rod. I would definitely recommend this and would buy another if I needed one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BigNasty06 Abu Garcia Orra S Spinning Combo is money well spent and decent quality
Ordered this product as a christmas gift for my younger brother who's really just starting to get into Freshwater fishing. Being a tournament and well verse angler myself, I wanted to introduce younger bro. to something that he would appreciate, begin to learn the rod action features- 1 piece vs. say a 2 piece combo, and feel the smoothness of the Abu Garcia reel vs. his other lower end rod combos from commercial box stores. Having used an Abu Garcia combo in the past, I felt this was an intermediate combo for him to use and be able to rig up with various soft plastic baits along with say jerkbaits. Upon recieving I was very impressed with workmanship of the line guides and the back bone the rod displayed. The grip was firm and the overall rod was really easy on the wrist and arm not getting fatigue. I would highly recommend this combo as a good beginner to intermediate setup without breaking the bank. For the price and Abu's Garcia's durability rating, one really can't go wrong for the value. BN06
