Bolt Spinning Reel
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.
As an amateur I had no intention of owning a reel of this value. However when I felt the quality and how it flowed so light and smooth I was hooked. Mated with an Ardent Brauer medium action 7' rod and gliss line it is my all around work horse. I added an Ardent ComfortGrip to the rod for even better casting ease.
I have been using these reels for 2 years now, fishing for everything from bluegill to tournament bass fishing to channel cats they have handled it without a problem.I have used other brands costing in excess of $200 and they didn't hold up to the abuse I have put these through. I highly recommend these reals to anyone looking for a quality product!!
I own 4 of these and they work for every style of spinning fishing! I love the offset handle that makes for smooth reeling along with added torque to work a fish out of deep water or a long cast! I have a 3000 that is spooled with 40lb gliss that stays on my inshore rod for stripper fishing. I’ve landed a 30lb striped bass with my drag set correctly, such a workhorse of a spinning reel!
