Ardent C-Force 3000 carbon fiber performance fishing reel. Top of the line fresh water and salt water reel that is very light weight but tremendously strong. I received this as a gift for Christmas but already have two and don't need another. Ardent describes it as follows : The C-Force is light but tough, the frame and rotor are constructed from high tech carbon fiber to give you the strongest and lightest reel possible. The 5.2:1 HIGH SPEED retrieve will increase your productivity on the water helping you catch more fish. The 6061-T6 double anodized spool is equipped with a knurled spool arbor to allow you to tie braid to the spool without line slippage.
