I do have to say I absolutely love this reel, so smooth and casts a mile its also very durable and can get thrown around everywhere without being damaged I will continue to buy these reels as long as they stay like this!

Purchased a couple of C Forces last spring, I've always been a Apex Elite guy but I have to say the C Force was pretty awesome, it held it's integrity, performance, and smoothness very well, great job Ardent.

Purchased my C Force due to Apex Grande being out of stock.. Based on my XS, Apex Grande and XS1000 experiences I purchased it... The C Force is very smooth, casts a mile and has plenty of power... Adjusting the brakes is effortless with good range... Spool holds plenty of line to accommodate the long casts you will make!!... You owe it to yourself to take a C Force fishing & enjoy...

This is by far my favorite reel !!! I own 6 of them and use them for everything from throwing a 1/4 Shakey head to froggin to flipping heavy 1 oz weight. This reel handles all of it with ease !! I will definitely be ordering more

My go-to reel for moving baits! Internal braking makes for smooth casts and very easily adjustable! Also hidden under the side plate you never knock the adjustments out of wack!

Ordered this and have been very satisfied. Backed off the spool brake and clutch as I have my other baitcasters and realized after 2 cast attempts that the spool is much smoother, which resulted in back lashes. Got them picked out, tightened the spool and clutch and tried again. As I got used to the reel, I gradually backed them off. I am now backed off quite a bit and casting almost as far with it as I can with a spinning reel. Very smooth, fantastic reel for the price. I have never spent more than this for a reel but can't imagine that a more expensive reel is much better. The only thing I wish it had is a flipping switch. I have gotten very adept at using a FS but unfortunately the only Ardent reel with one is a lower gear drive and right hand crank.

This is by far the smoothest reel I’ve ever used in my whole life. Almost 30 years of fishing and it’s so smooth and so light you almost forget it’s there.

One of the lightest reels I have ever owned. The C-Force is ultra light, smooth, comfortable and clearly designed for a full day of use. Paired with fluorocarbon or braid, this reel is killer for any application you choose. The strong drag and carbon fiber body make it effortless when you're flipping those big fish into he boat!

Finally got to take this reel out and was very pleased with it running 15 lb fluro with a 1/4 oz flipping weight and creature bait so not a ton of weight and it just plain casted a mile even into to wind which was strong braking system worked great no issues with it at all couldn’t b happier

These are by far, the lightest baitcast reels I have ever held! Smooth and solid. I just purchased 2 and there will be more in the cart before summer. You will never regret buying this reel.

I purchased 3 when they first came out. Couldn't be happier with these reels. Ill be ordering 5 more for the 2019 season. Easy to adjust, light weight and smooth as silk without any modifications. Take one out on the water with you....you wont regret it.

The applications for this reel are endless!! I used mine all season to bass fish and then put it on my Salmon rod to horse in big Kings.

This is a great reel!! It’s smooth and has great casting distance. The only thing I am having issues with is the drag; it may be a fluke with my reel, but I can have it tightened to 90%, and the smallest fish will keep the spool from moving. This isn’t all the time though.

Love this reel and will definitely be getting more.

The C-force is an amazingly smooth reel and casts extremely well. I've used it for everything from small crankbaits on the river to dragging football jigs on ledges and points. It's a great performing reel.

Ive been using this reel for the past several months. This reel has all the torque you need to winch them big girls out of that heavy cover. With the 7.0:1 ratio its pretty good for some cranking too.

light weight, handles fish well, casts a mile. once you get the brake dialed in very few backlashes. only 4 stars cause the reel seat is short wont fit on some rods, and the grips are pressed on so after some good smallie fighting the grip pops off the handle.

C force reel is ok. I hate the brake system is a pia to adjust unlike all the other reels in the line up. Honestly can’t wait to sell it.

This reels ability to cast into the wind without back lashing and it's ability to cast light baits is incredible! My favorite reel I've ever used!

The C-Force baitcaster is super smooth and very light. I was thinking the Apex Elites were the best, but Ardent has topped a great reel with one thats even better! Great Job Ardent!

I wasn't sure how I would like this reel at first because it is the first reel I have owned without a magnetic brake. I must say I am impressed! It casts better than my Shimano Curado! Great reel and even better price!
Sunday, 27 May 2018
This is hard to say this because I didn't think Ardent could make a better reel than Grand and Elite, but the C-Force is hands down the smoothest reel I've ever used!

I am new to Ardent and I can tell you from playing with it here at the house and testing it out on the water all I can say is WOW!! My favorite reel and ordering more..well done Ardent # I Ruled the water today!!!!

If you need a reel that will cast a mile, then look no further! These reels are lightweight and smooth as silk!
Tuesday, 13 February 2018
Perfect! Just got this in today and couldnt be happier, spooled it up with #40 Gliss and was casting 3/8oz jerkbaits a mile. Very smooth on the retrieve and no play in the handle or spool at all!

this is a beautiful reel and its performance leaves nothing to be desired

First time using this reel and I couldn't believe how far I could cast light baits. Super smooth and can cast mile, be sure to set the break under the side plate to help get the most out of your cast.

I just record my new C Force reels and I have to they are the lightest and smoothest reels I've ever had. I have played with them a bit, and paired with Strong Braid I am relearning how to cast. It only takes a small effort to get a long cast.
Wednesday, 20 December 2017
What a remarkable reel. This is truly a great product that deserves more than 5 stars. The operation of this reel is so smooth. Very happy with this purchase.
