Great reel! Use it on my ice rods and summer rods! Smooth casting, great drag. Very light weight, durable.
These are just some of the best reels I've ever used. I have all 3 speeds. Light weight and Durable. And the Casting distance wow. I also love the price. #TeamArdent #RuleTheWater.
The Apex Elite is always my go to, when fishing the US Open as a AAA angler on Lake Mead I needed to make the longest cast possible with my swim bait in there ultra clear water, and the Apex Elite got it done.
