Ardent Reels


Has anyone used them? What do you think of them? JEV I saw you have them as one of your sponsor's.
To me they are a bit pricey and bulky but I could be wrong.

Re: Ardent Reels


I've been throwing the Ardent's for a year and a half. I've been very pleased with the performance of the reel and the durability. The first generations we did have an issue on a mounting post however it was corrected two years ago. Now, I'm talking the 1000's. The 500's are good but not as smooth as the 1000's. The one issue I do have is in the spinning reels. They are just not where they need to be yet. Ardent is working hard on them but to this point I still use my Quantum and Pflueger spinners. The flipping reel is a great reel also.
Keep in mind they are Made in America and for me it's great as the plant is only four hours north of me.

Re: Ardent Reels


Sounds like maybe a product review is in order.

Re: Ardent Reels


The Made in USA part is what I like so much about them. Their still a young company but I believe they are definatly heading in the right direction.

Re: Ardent Reels


SBG I could not agree with you any more. Price competitive with the imports, continuously working to improve the product and they cast like a dream.

I'll set up a product review with them soon.
