Good reel very impressed. Plan on buying 4 more would recommend highly
I have fished with many different reels over the years and the Apex Elite is by far my favorite reel. Smooth as silk and can launch a bait a country mile.
Great reel, smooth, casts well and looks great. I now have four Ardent reels and can tell you that this is a great company. Between the product value and customer service this is a company you should try.
