These rods are super sensitive. I pair the crankbait model with an Apex magnum and launch crankbaits a country mile. A great combo

Great rod. Super reactive. I purchased the 7-6 model to replace an old rod I used for buzz bait. This rod works. Caught 15 fish easily with it at Amistad last weekend. Amazing sensitivity and cast ability

I have been using the crankbait and spinnerbait. these rods are balanced and holy buckets are they sensitive. I swear I know a split second before the actual bite happens.

I have four of these rods in various sizes just ordered another they have great sensitivity and seem to hold up very well so far. I’ve spent more on rods that were not half as good can’t go wrong with these

After fishing a season with these wonderful rods I can truly recommend this rods series to anglers at any level. They are light weight, very sensitive and plenty of hook setting power. Oh, they look good too. Match them with a Ardent Apex reel and you have an awesome combination. I own 13 of these combinations and couldn’t be happier. Because of the rod/reels I’ve never missed a fish.

Very nice rods. Besides the fact that they look great, the rods are really light and durable. I have put these rods to the test and they have held up. I also love line up of actions they have in these rods. They have a rod for almost any application.

Awesome rods! Very light weight, and very sensitive! I cant believe Ardent sells these at the $99 price point but I am glad they do! One other thing it wont help you catch fish but man these are pretty with the deep blue carbon fiber finish! I have the 7'6 Swimbait rod, 7'4 FB Jig and worm rod, 7'4 Frog Rod, 7'2 Spinnerbait, 7'5 Flip and Pitch. They all fish great! I plan to get the rest of the rods to finish the series. Get you some you wont be disappointed! #Rulethewater

I use a frog jig and spinner rod and I love them. Can feel every little bite and has one heck of a back bone.

I have the football jig/worm rod. It's very sensitive, has a good tip, and strong backbone. It's also fairly lightweight for a jig rod.

I have the spinnerbait, frog, football jig/worm and the crankbait rod. By far the best rods I’ve ever throwed long casting and can with stand a beating. Absolutely love these rods. Would 100% recommend to anyone.

I have both the Topwater and Spinnerbait version and their great. I will be purchasing other versions in the future and dont think anyone could go wrong with these rods, highly recommend!

Got the topwater rod and paired it with the Apex Tournament along with 40lb braided line. This rod is super light allowing you to fish longer and not wear yourself out. The medium action really brings life to your topwater baits like no other. Highly recommend anyone to try these rods. Very well done, another high end product by Ardent.

Made the switch to Denny Brauer series rods this year. I have several of each model. I am enjoying using the rods, love the feel and the responsiveness of the rods. They are designed to withstand the abuse of the avid tournament angler and priced to satisfy the angler at any skill level. Highly recommend giving them a try.

I have 1 of each and 2 of the umbrella rig rods. Absolutely love them. The worm/jig works great for flukes and trick Worms. I use the swimbait rod for lipless and works well also. About to purchase more soon.

Absolutely the best rods I own. Great sensitivity, good l. Only wish they would label them with the action along with their intended purpose and power.

Great rod! I put my apex elite on the 7'10 rod. I cast anything from a light soft plastic to a big swim jig on it, no problem. I also use it for redfish tournaments. Has the leverage and back bone to turn the reds.

Great rods. If you are lucky enough to put an order in when they are in stock...load up.

I have been using these topwater rods for 2 years and I have to say they are an excellent choice in topwater rods and that is why I am ordering more of them!

This is the best rod I've put in my hand was using Falcon but the warranty is terrible my ardent broke they replaced it with no problem Falcon wants to charge you I don't use Falcon no more ardent is the best all around

This a quality rod. Well made and looks great. Has the backbone to set the hook on those bigger fish. Just the right amount of bend when fighting a fish. A must add to your rod arsenal.

I held off on writing this review until I has sufficient time to use the rods. I have a swimbait and spinnerbaits rod. They both do an amazing job. They feel good and I have them paired with an elite and a grand from ardent. For $99 bucks you won't go wrong with these rods.

Boy thank you Denny! Very nice rods. I travel with Mass transportation a lot, to go fishing. These rods are the truth. Light but super durable! I am truly blown away by the action of the different rods . I have the Spinning Rod, Towpaths, Spinneret, and Football Jig &Worm rods just outstanding rods. A bank fisherman can get to those hard to get spots!

I bought the 7'6" cranking stick...I love it, has a nice flex but enough power...it's as nice as many $200 plus rods I've handled.

As an USCG Guide and touring Bass angler these rods handle the extreme beating they receive 325 days a year. I absolutely beat these rods to death and they continue to hold up and get the task at hand done everytime!!!! There is no other rod out there that can handle what I give these everytime they are in my hand or ciustomers hands period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Got the crankbait rod and luv it will be purchasing 2 more very soon
Wednesday, 22 July 2015
A rare find - a sensitive IM8 rod with backbone at a $100 price point! I've used the FB Jig/Worm rod, and the Spinnerbait rod, and both proved flawless. I liked them so much, I just spent some more money to get the crankbait rod, even though I don't really need one. I really appreciate the longer handle. It really gives me leverage and power when horsing big ones to the boat. You can't beat this buy!
