    Comments about Ardent Apex Pro Baitcasting Reel, AA73RBB:

    Looking for a great reel for burning spinnerbaits in clear, low water for river smallmouth, this is the one. Lite weight design for all day fishing. Casts a mile for clear low water conditions. Durable for big river smallmouth. I love the small profile that fits great in my hand.

                Freakin' awesome. All there is to it. Any of the Ardent Apex Series reels are solid, smooth, durable reels that have no problem handling bruiser bass after bruiser bass. They are some of the smoothest, most compact, and lightweight reels I've ever owned. Not to mention the sleek, black matte finish makes it looks like a reel Batman would own! Check out this video I made winching in big bass after big bass on 65lb P-Line Spectrex braid with an Ardent Apex series reel.
