The new Orra SX spinning reels from Abu Garcia, comes in five models from a 10 to a 60 to cover a wide range of fishing situations. Each features a corrosion resistant X-Craftic alloy frame and eight stainless steel HPCRTM (High Performance Corrosion Resistant) bearings plus a roller bearing with Instant Anti-Reverse.
The proven sealed Carbon Matrix drag system provides a smooth, consistent drag while the brass Duragear, stainless steel main shaft and other components should stand the test of time.
Slow oscillation makes sure mono or braid lays nicely on the spool and the Everlast bail system and rotor brake design stops early bail closure when casting. The machined aluminum spool features a unique reverse corkscrew design so you can tie braid directly to the spool without the use of a rubber gasket or mono backing. A high-capacity spare aluminum spool is also included, giving you even more options.
