Delivering excellent on-the-water performance, the Ardent Edge Pro Casting Reel is made in America and features some of Ardent’s latest technologies. Loaded with eight ABEC Stainless Steel Bearings inside its sturdy 413 Cast Aluminum Frame, it offers consistently smooth functioning and a lower profile than previous Ardent reel models. Its 6-pin Centrifugal Brake System also provides a wide range of cast control for a variety of conditions and applications, and a Carbon/Smoothie Double Drag System delivers consistent drag performance you can count on.

The drag system also features patent-pending “Drag Tracking Technology,”  which allows the levelwind eyelet to track parallel with the line location on the spool as line is being pulled from the reel in drag mode. This greatly reduces the chance of line breaks by eliminating the sharp angles caused by the levelwind eyelet being out of sync with the line location on the spool. Available in 5.1:1, 6.5:1 and 7.2:1 gear ratios, there’s an Ardent Edge Pro Casting Reel that is perfect for almost everyone.

Additional Features:

-7075-T6 Aluminum Triple Bearing Spool

Customer Reviews

Comments: once you break this reel in, you're set to go. I absolutly BOMB crankbaits out there if you tune it right. I may add this to my tournament arsenal.

From: Fish Doc: Up north

Comments: I have been eyeing an Ardent for the last few months and wanted to see what all the hype was about.  First impression, definitely NOT worth 200 bucks.  I would gladly trade this reel for a new Shimano Chronarch any day over this reel.  Just not what I expected and is a very poor effort from Ardent engineers all around to make a good product.

From: Alan: Illinois, USA

Comments: This reel is great. A little loud at first, but one used half a day it gets loose and ready to go. It casts fantastic, feels great in the hand, and is well made. Bought because it is American, and it stands up to that name in expectations. Proud to own one. Proud to order more soon.
