Rated 5 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth and light I have 3 of these reels now and have fished them for a year and I won't trade them for the world. They are crazy light and can fish all day wit no fatigue in you hand and they cast a mile November 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great reel Great reel and a great strong drag system. First time out fresh water bass fishing caught several over 5 and the reel performed well. Very light, throws well and gets the job completed, The gear ratio is perfect for my kind of fishing. Have used it salt water fishing and it performed so well I bought another one exclusively for salt water fishing In my opinion, for the money and its performances, I will stack this reel up against any bait casting reel in its -price range on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Reel for the price!! I love my Ardent Apex Elite bait casting reel. The 6.5:1 gear speed is just right for my cranking style and provides me with the torque I need to crank it in. These reels have worked great for me in all conditions, wet, windy, sunny and dry and hot! They have not let me down, while others are picking at theirs, I am casting away. July 21, 2015
