Abu Garcia Orra Sx?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any experience with the Abu Garcia Orra SX? found a good price on the outgoing model. How do they perform? How do they compare as far as casting light lures? my next choice would be a silvermax.

I bought 2 to replace my SilverMax's at the grand opening of a Bass Pro in Utica.  I only got to try them out a handful of times and I love them.  I generally don't fish baitcasters for anything less than a 1/4oz so I wouldn't be able to say how they perform with light lures.

IMO light lures is more about the rod flex and tip than it is the reel.

Can you swing the 3rd Gen Revo S? Sweet, light reel. Buttery smooth.

Revo S is more than I want to spend, main reason im even considering an orra is because the outgoing models are dirt cheap at the moment. thanks for the input though

3/16oz is the lightest lure I have but those are spinnerbaits so likely closer to 1/4oz realistically. I have found an orra for silvermax money so I may just go with the orra this time. thanks

Then in that case, I would go for the Orra. Just make sure its the ratio you want.

I would take it over the silver max. Just for the aluminum frame. It's basically a previous generation revo s minus a bearing or two and carbon drag washers. The lightest bait I threw on it was a zoom super fluke and it cast that quite well.

Certifigually if your talking about the previous model. Magnetic with the current one To access the breaks on the old model; unscrew the screw on top of the handle side and twist the non handle side up and down. Push the breaks tabs out for on and in for off.

I just got one on clearance, im assuming you are getting it from the same place. I have one I got a couple years ago, never had any issues with it and at that price you cant go wrong.

how will the centrifugal compare to the magnetic in my black max?

 

The centri brakes will control the beginning part of your cast better once you dial it in. That's where many people get in trouble with a B/C. Start with 2-3 pins out. Adjust your spool tension based on the weight of your lure, and you should be fine.

I will have to check that video out. Ive used my black max for over a year now so it shouldn't be too bad to get used to
