          Comments about Ardent Apex Elite Baitcasting Reel, AA65RBA:

          Replaced many of my old reels this year. Looks great and a great price but most importantly is lightweight, powerful, cast a mile and the non-slip eva handle grips for when your hands are wet. If you are in the market for a new reel check out the Ardent Apex Elite baitcasting reel. They also come in left handed models which I use.

              This is the best reel on the market. Extremely light weight and casts a mile. I have changed over to an avid Ardent user and absolutely love these reels. Easy to use, dial in and handles any battle with that big fish like a champ!

                This Reel has superior performance. The 12+1 ball bearings provide unimaginable casting distance and is a real smooth performance reel. The deep V6061 T6 machined aluminum spool is awesome and provides any angler the ability to fish all day without having to worry about having enough line. The reel is also equipped with a carbon fiber handle and EVA grips for better handling when reeling in those bigguns. I recommend this reel to anybody interested in fishing. you will not be disappointed.
