Ardent Apex

Recommended Posts

Has anyone actually fished with one of these reels? I handled one this weekend at Susquahanna Fishing Tackle in Lancaster, Pa during their first annual BassFest. It felt just like a Lews Tournament Pro in your hand (notice I said it FELT like, not PERFORMED like).


Its compact, lightweight, and casted very smooth. Though it was a little grindy on the retrieve. I was wondering if anyone owned one?


Now I KNOW that these are not made in America (China) and I KNOW that this is not a Shimano or Lews or Abu.... But I am asking for opinions from people who have actually used this reel to please comment.


I have no interest in a Brand war. Thanks!

Haven't used one, but I felt one in store and thought it looked good. Honestly, I think it may be made in the same factory as the Lews Speed Spool reels. Seemed to have a lot of similarities.
