User review for: Ardent Graphite 2000 Reel , submitted by , Written on Sep 29, 2014

I recently purchased an Ardent Reel from Ardent's website. I had been searching for a US manufacturer of spinning reels and came across Ardent as highly recommended and the makers of a quality reel. Being a manufacturer myself it is very important to me to insure that every purchase I make is made here in the USA to protect my family and employees. I was so excited to find Ardent, and could not wait to install the reel on a Saint Croix Rod and give it to my son, all the while teaching him about American Pride and importance of keeping manufacturing local! When I received the reel yesterday I was appalled to open it up and read Made in China on the bottom of the Graphite 2000! It is really disturbing to me the website clearly states that Ardent is proud to be the only USA manufacturer of casting and spinning reels and that you are shipping out an inferior product!
