Ardent Apex Elite Casting Reels - $149.99

Weighing in below 6-ounces, the lightweight Ardent Apex Elite Casting Reels aren’t lightweights when it comes to power. Battle-tested catching huge Lake Amistad bass, they feature a rigid, high-strength aluminum frame that won’t bend under pressure and a solid, lightweight carbon fiber swept handle with EVA grips for maximum cranking leverage.

Loaded with 13 ball bearings (12+1), the Apex Elite’s stay smooth for the long haul, and deliver the fluid casts and retrieves you’d expect from a tournament caliber reel. The Deep V 6061 T6 machined aluminum spool also delivers increased line capacity, while also helping to reduce weight, and the externally adjustable 270-degree magnetic brake system allows you to make quick adjustments on the water. Hard to beat for the money and hard to beat on the water, the Ardent Apex Elite Casting Reels deliver Elite level performance.

Comments: I have always been an Abu fan for its cast ability and smooth feel. I tried the Apex reel because it matches up perfectly with my Dobyns Champion rods. This reel did not disappoint right out of the box! Extremely light and durable. I couldn't believe it, but it's actually smoother than any Abu I've owned. Its ridiculous in a good way. Buy one of these, you won't be disappointed.

Comments: Received this unit in mail today, never owned any Ardent products, have always been an Abu Garcia fan but after the disappointment with my new Rocket, I decided to try different manufactures, ordered the apex elite and the new 13 fishing concept A. I must say my first impression of this reel was good, it is sharp looking, fit and finish is great and the carbon handle is great, very impressive casting and good power with the lower gear ratio I paired it with the 13 fishing omen 7'3 MH Rod and it is a great combo,it pitches very smooth and will cast comparable with the Abu Revo SX will review again in a few months after some good BassSquatch action and tell if it will hold up. Has three year warranty which is great for a 150.00 reel, I don't expect it to outperform my MGX but it is worth the money so far.
