This reel is simply put, amazing. This has to be the smoothest reel I have ever ran and with all those bearings it is super quiet, I myself am usually pretty picky when it comes to reels and I have found every Ardent reel I pick up I in all honesty, can not find anything to complain about, this reels drag is superior to all other brands on the market the brakes are also work amazing they are very adjustable unlike some other companies (not going to name names) that their brakes hardly work or dont do anything at all, it is a super durable reel with the full aluminum frame, in general this reel just looks amazing. Overall this is the second best (only to the apex grand) or maybe even best reel I have ever used, it has everything you expect from a 230 dollar reel and more, 10/10 from me!! Rule The Water!

Finally had the opportunity to get out and use my new Summit Hawk reels last week in Tennesse. These reels are light weight and preformed flawlessly. Can't wait to get more of these reels.
