The Ardent Bolt is an excellent spinning reel for all spinning applications. The Bolt is light but tough, constructed from the finest materials. The 6.0:1 HIGH SPEED retrieve will increase your productivity on the water helping you catch more fish. The 6061-T6 double anodized spool is equipped with a knurled spool arbor to allow you to tie braid to the spool without line slippage. The blue and black cosmetics will be sure to impress your fishing partners and complement your fishing equipment. At this price, this reel is a steal and a must-have for any serious spinning angler.
Great reel strong and smooth. I have several and love them. try one and you will understand. Casts a mile!John Wilhite
Been with Ardent for many years. The older Bolt reels were definitely smoother and held up for many more years. It is not a bad reel by any means but not as good as before.I recommend spending a little more and go with the C Force model. It stays much smoother for many years. Both will cast a mile too.Mike Mcfadden
One of the smoothest spinning reels on the market. Ardent reels are affordable and durable. The customer service if anything should happen is amazing and very prompt in getting you back on the water.Chris
