The APEX Magnum delivers great on-the-water performance. This wide body-low profile baitcast provides the power and durability you need with increased line capacity and a super strong and smooth drag rated at 17.6 lbs. Featuring ten stainless steel ball bearings, extra long carbon fiber handle that won’t bend or break, and the patent pending Drag Tracking Technology DTT gives you the casting distance and fish fighting power needed in an inshore reel.The patent pending “Drag Tracking Technology” system on the new Ardent Magnum Reel allows the level wind eyelet to track in parallel with the line location on the spool as line is being pulled from the reel in drag mode. This reduces the chance of line break on large fish by eliminating the sharp angles caused by the level wind eyelet being out of sync with the line location on the spool in drag mode as is the case on all other reels
Wide spool holds a lot of heavy line! Perfect for my big swimbaits! Paired with the 7’11” XH I have the torque I need to wrench in fish from long casts with a Slammer or a glide bait! Also have used a Magnum for bottom fishing in the bay for Fluke and Seabass and even landed a 28lb Striper on a bucktail with it!
This reel is a absolute workhorse made to bring in big fish that take out a lot of line!!! I will be buying a second one!!
great reel hold lots of line for swim baits. handles big fish well.
