          I personally like this reel, It is smooth in operation and can cast a long distance. Once you have it dialed in backlashing is minimal. I use mine constantly while Bass fishing and have all my rods equipped with Ardent reels.

            • Cast A Mile
            • Great Looking Reel

              Comments about Ardent Apex Elite Baitcasting Reel, AA65RBA:

              Replaced many of my old reels this year. Looks great and a great price but most importantly is lightweight, powerful, cast a mile and the non-slip eva handle grips for when your hands are wet. If you are in the market for a new reel check out the Ardent Apex Elite baitcasting reel. They also come in left handed models which I use.
