Recommended Posts

has any one used these reels before? I was looking into these reels and was wondering how they are for flipping.

Also i saw these in camo and was trying to find a place that sells the camo one but cant find it anyone now where i can get it

Ardent reels in general are bulky, ugly, and heavy imo. Id go with some other reel that could serve as a better pitching reel but not be limited only to that one techique due to the otherwise impractical design.

agreed!   buy a Revo or a Shimano... i'm sure they are triple what an Ardent is..

I've used a F500 a couple of times.  It takes a little getting used to.  You thumb the spool itself instead of the line.  I actually got to where I sort of like that though.  I'd say my only complaint was pitching distance.  Even with the reel as free as I could get it I could pitch further with both my Johnny Morris, and my old Curado.

But I could see someone wanting the reel if they did a lot of short pitching into heavy cover.  It's just not a reel I'd buy for myself.

You can flip with practically any reel, so you don 't "need" a flipping reel, pitching is different than flipping, you 'll need a good reel with a spool that spools freely to achieve more distance, now if what you want is a multipurpose reel that allows you to flip, pitch and cast there 's such a beast ---> Shimano Castaic or if you got the extra dough then a Core 100MGFV.
