The smoothest reel I've ever own and cast like a dreamjohn
Let me tell you what. This reel works. It's buttery smooth retrrieve is amazing. It's a must have for any fast moving retrieve needed. Rips the bait through the wait without hesitation. Amazing. Have 2 of them. Will be getting a couple more for sure.Patrick Wilbricht
Super lightweight and super fast. If you are looking for a great reel the Ardent Apex Lightning is it! When time is money, every tournament angler knows that getting your bait back to the boat fast and back in the water is essential. The lightning is the first 8.0:1 ratio reel from Ardent to help you do that. Check them out and you will put more fish in the boat because of it.Dave Ottman
