Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ardent Apex Pro is a must have!! I bought the Ardent Apex Pro to pair with my St. Croix mojo bass 7'1" medium heavy power fast action rod. It is the lightest reel I have ever held and is the smoothest retrieve I have ever felt. The Apex Pro casts very smooth and far even on the stiff medium heavy mojo. It is very sturdy and pulls in 5lbs bass with no trouble. It is a great reel especially for the price. It feels like other $200-$300 reels I've used. If you are looking for a reel that is a top notch reel you definitely need to buy the apex pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and powerful I now have two of these reels and they are fantastic. With 10 ball bearings the reel is extremely smooth and the 7.3:1 gear ratio makes this great for all different types of fishing. Breaking system is great and have not had backlashes with it set correctly. High end product at mid level prices. I will be buying more of these for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this reel. I have been a fisherman since I could walk, but have never become proficient with a baitcaster. I have tried several over the years but always tossed them aside out of frustration. I was feeling hopeful within 20 minutes of purchasing this reel, and fishing with it the next day. Couldn't be happier with this reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One smooth reel I bought this reel and absolutely love it. It is a very smooth reel and has great cast ability. It will cast a country mile. You can't go wrong with anything Ardent makes! A great reel at a great price point. Go get you one and Rule the water! I plan on buying more this week!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Reel for the price!! I love my Ardent Apex Pro bait casting reel. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for your buck! have had reels in the same price category from several other companies in the industry. This blows the competition out of the water! Performs just as well as the $200+ reels that I own!
