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 6.2:1 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.
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!
This is for a bolt 2000 reel. I set this up as a unweighted soft plastic system. This paired with the Edge 7' fast rod is a wonderfull combo the balance is great making it comfortable to use. The drag preformed great nice and smooth not jerky. Would I change anything? Maybe make it in red. It would match my setup better. lol
I just got my reel in the mail and wow I absolutely cannot wait to use this baby pairing it with a ardent ned heavy spinning rod. The reel is smooth as silk, everything feels well build and balanced.
