      Comments about Ardent Apex Tournament Baitcasting Reel, AA65RBC:

      To be able to get a reel that is this smooth for under $100 is baffling to me. Ardent reels are a great product and they have some of the best customer service I have ever had to deal with.

            Easily one of the best reels I've owned. You simply can't beat it for the price. Best reel you will find in that $100 range, plus the 3-year Ardent warranty?! Just awesome. It's unbelievably smooth, lightweight, and compact. Not to mention the sleek black matte finish makes it look like one of Batman's fishing reels.

                Without a doubt this is the best reel priced under 100 bucks on the market today. Smooth, light, and very easy to use cast control. The 3 year warranty is just icing on the cake. Highly recommend
