Love it.

I think the title says it all. This reel is very smooth and I love the drag. It's really easy to dial in to avoid the famous birds nest. It is perfect for anyone looking to upgrade and stay in budget.

Been using these about a year now and I’ve already replaced every reel in the boat with the Apex Elite. Highly recommended.

Incredibly smooth with great casting distance

I used the Apex Elite during the 2017 tournament trail. Once you get the initial adjustments made these reels cast great and are a smooth as butter. They easily fit the palm of your hand and are super light as well.

Spent a lot of time with this reel today and I must say I love it! It cast so freaking far. Super lite weight and extremely smooth. I will defiantly be getting at least 3 more of these. Good work guys

This is best bang for your buck. No where else can you find a reel with such great qualities for this price. Lightweight and tough. Everyone that fishes with me loves it as well and are surprised when I tell them the retail on this reel. Ardent Apex Elite will be a staple in my gear!

I got an Apex Elite 5.3:1 in the mail on Friday. Spooled line and got ready for a tournament on Saturday. Out of the box you could tell the craftsmanship was excellent. No adjustments necessary. Spool, tie, cast!! Once sun broke through the haze I started cranking a 6XD. The retrieve was so smooth and east that I actually thought something was wrong with my plug. Much to my excitement, it was cranking perfectly. I threw that plug all day long and had ZERO fatigue. This reel is a must have for avid crankbait anglers.

Best Cranking Reel!

Went out the other day and found some fish on a river ledge. Time to try out my new Ardent Apex Elite 5.3:1 RH reel on deep crankbaits. Throwing deep diving crankbaits all day can wear you out, but not with this reel. I was amazed at how smooth the cast and retrieve was! Reeling in the big cranks were effortless to say the least. Light weight but very strong. By far the best cranking reel out there!

Smooth, Lite, and is a dream to fish with. It"s my favorite reel Ardent makes.
Brian Snow
Great reel for the money!
5
This reel is extremely light, smooth, and casts a mile. It gives a great advantage to be able to cast to a spot such as a Lilly pad edge without having to be right on top of it. It's an amazing reel I use daily on the water! It's second only to my Ardent Apex Grand! Would recommend this reel to anyone!

Ardent apex elite is a light smooth working reel , perfect drag system. If you are in the market shopping for a new brand reels give ardent a try.

Very durable!
5
This reel is pretty light and smooth but what surprised me the most about it was how durable it is. After owning the reel and using it pretty hard in that time, I accidentally left it out on my boat overnight in a pretty hard rain. I would have thought that the reel would eventually exhibit signs of being left out in the rain. However, it never did. I used it the rest of the year and intentionally never took the reel apart just to see how it would do. Four months later when the winter arrived, I took the reel apart and it was still built like a brand new reel.
