Bass Baitcast

ardent v.s. abu garcia?

I am on the look out for my first baitcasting reel/rod combo and i was going to get the orra sx by abu garcia for spring...but! i ffound an ardent c400 fishouflage reel in my price range! all i know is that the c400 retailes for like 170 bucks or something around there. so, how does it compare to the orra? is it better or worse? which one should i get for my first baitcaster???

the only ardent experience l have is with my XS1000. when l got it a few years ago, it was their top reel. they have some now somewhat more pricey but l can't imagine how they could improve by much this sweet reel. it has more bearings than the 400 and other than possibly a different gear ratio they should be pretty much the same. l think you would like it.
ardent is still the only bass baitcast reel mfgr here in the united states. go for it. be patriotic as well as an astute angler.

shop around. you should be able to pick up a c400 from your $170 figure down to $130.

oh! wait... you DID specify the camo finish. $150 and change. here's a link:

but if you can live without the camo, you can save an add'l 25 bucks!
