Definently love the real. Very smooth and reliable. Holds up to what I throw at it. I get a new real every year and this is by far my favorite so as long as this one don't break till next year ima stick with it. If it does break ima get the same one anyways

Rated 5 out of 5 by TSMF Great Buy
This reel is a great buy. $70 and with the coupons/point/rewards that Dicks give you, its pretty much a steal. It has a large spool that you can keep plenty of line on it yet compact enough to keep it easy to handle. I have mine on a Vendetta rod with 10lb spiderwire. I noticed a very slight grinding during retrieve though. Probably a simple fix with a good cleaning other than that great reel. It casts very well. Nice sturdy feel to it. Great color scheme. And overall a great fit for my hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rockym very nice reel in this price range
Nice looking(not that important), moderately priced(important to some), open faced spinning reel with some nice features including smooth drag, good quality bearings and an alloy frame which allows you to use this in salt(rinse after each and every use with plenty of fresh water to remove salt deposits) as well as fresh water. Presently the owner of both the S10 and S30 models I am happy to say that these are great reels that are very smooth and perform extremely well if taken care of properly. Rinsing them off after use will help remove dirt and other particles which may impede performance. I have my S10 model spooled with Suffix 10lb braid and paired with a 6'6" Falcon medium fast action and my S30 spooled with Suffix 20lb braid and a 7' Falcon medium heavy fast action. I would not recommend using the on anything smaller as the weight of this reel may affect balance and feel of combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oda Orra S ROCKS!!
For the money this reel can't be beat. Super and I mean super smooth retrieve, really fast retrieval as well,about 33 inches per turn. Have taken it out twice now and have no complaints or wants with this reel. Only thing is I wouldn't recommend.. braid on it.. Hybrid mono/ floro is absolutely perfect on this thing.. I should've ordered 2!!
