Ardent F500

Recommended Posts

How much does it weigh? Couldn't find specs on it anywhere that listed the weight - that always makes me suspicious. I did take note that Denny Brauer has signed up with Ardent and claims to have participated in the product development of the F500. Interesting.

I don't know the exact weight but actually it's heavier than i expected it to be.  When I get home, I'll see if it has the weight printed anywhere on the box.  Or I'll just go put it on the scale.

Buddy and I each picked up an Ardent (don't remember model) at a show last year. Within about a months' worth of action (used it for pitching with 30 pound braid) it was shot to _____, making all sorts of noises and such. Didn't have the drag cranked down or really abuse it. Needless to stay I will stick to Abu. Hope you guys have better luck. :D

Tin.....Was it RED in color?  The C400 ring a bell? If so, they had some problems with them so they re-did them.  If you get a C400, make sure it's the grey one and not red (burgandy).   The XS1000 and XS600 are great reels.  The only thing I dislike about them is they sit to high on the rod.  They could make it a little more LOW PROFILE.  Just my thoughts.
