Silky smooth APEX Grand

This Silky smooth APEX Grand reel is a great reel for the casual fisherman or competitive angler. It's incredibly comfortable in your hand and incredibly smooth to reel and cast. Add an APEX Grand to your arsenal and pair it with an Edge rod and you won't be dissapointed.

I just got my Ardent Apex Grand reel a few days ago and I love it!!! The brakes work great and it holds up great against huge battles with monster catfish and big LMB!!!!!

Better then other reel at this price point!

I am sold that this is the best $200.00 reel on the market. This this cast like a bullet and the reels nice and smooth. The feel on the reel handles in great, even when covered in fish slime. The drag is smooth and has all the power needed to land big bass. To give you an idea, this reel has no problem when fighting 12lb and larger Bowfin. If you know large Bowfin you know they fight and dance harder then Largemouth.

If you live to fish heavy cover like I do, you cant go wrong with this reel. Lite, smooth, and can be set up perfectly for whatever presentation your using.

I just got mine and the ardent 7-3 rod to go with it how can i put it in words to describe it wonderful. its just so light and comfortable. by that my hands are not large but about medium in size. i use it as my frog rod and reel. it was put to the test this weekend as i fished the Louisiana South Division of Fishers of Men. we must have caught at least 90 bass with no problem with the frog. so as i say it sold me as it made a difference in catch ratio and the smoothness and speed of the reel was out of this world. if you need any more information please contact me or visit the web site of ardent. and if you purchase a rod and reel from them you want be sorry. have a great day on the water and leave a pair for the next guy to come along.

New Favorite Reel

I got my Ardent Apex Grand along with a couple of Apex Elites in a couple of weeks ago and I was impressed from the first cast. I have tried many reels from numerous companies and I have not used a reel that cast as smoothly and easily as the Apex Grand! With a flick of the wrist the casting distance is unmatched by any reel I have used! I would recommend this reel to anyone for any fishing situation!!

No Problem Catching Up!!

Just got my order in from Ardent and was able to put the Apex Grand to work. This 7:3:1 is silky smooth and had no problem catching up to the feisty small mouth today. I'm super impressed with how easy it was to dial in, one quick adjustment and not even the 15mph winds could make this thing backlash. Great Job Ardent!! I can't wait to try out the Apex Elite tomorrow!! #ArdentReels #ArdentOutdoors

This reel is a beast, I keep mine spooled with 50lb braid for flipping and pitching mats and throw a frog. This reel is perfect for winching the big girls out of thick vegetation so if you are looking for a great reel at a low price you have found it.

AMAZING

Amazing reel. I use it for jigging and heavy hook setting on a heavy rod. There is no comparison to the others, this thing is second to noneand i wont rely on many other reels and no other brands. Ardent is leading the pack with this one. Such accurate fine torque settings for every weight of lure. Once you cast this puppy you will throw the others in the water!

Does it ALL
5
Been using the Apex Grand for 2 years now with countless casts and hooksets and not 1 single issue. I mainly use this reel for flipping, and man flipping is a pleasure with this reel. It's quiet with any line you put on, its tough for hard hooksets and pulling big fish out of the weeds and pads without any slips or issues. And ontop of all that its light! Having a light compact reel that can take all this abuse is just unbelievable. Yet another plus is when the flipping bite isn't on you can put any type of lure you want on this thing and watch it fly a mile. It doesnt matter this reel does it all. 3 year warranty is huge. Buy one you wont regret it.

Great Reels at a great price

This is my first year using the Apex Grand and so far it's been awesome for flipping. The reel is smooth and doesn't make much noise like some of the other ones out there. The Apex Grand is great for when your throwing the heavier types of lures in thick grass or pads. I'm also anxious this year to try this reel out on a top water rod with some heavy braid for those long hook ups that most anglers know what I'm talking about. When that big fish hits as soon as that lure hits the water at your farthest point of a cast. Giving that I primarily fish in PA we won't see a good top water bight for another month, the wait is on. Get yourself one of these Ardent Apex Grand's and you can put it to the test yourself.
