HomeNewsArdent Expands Pro Staff for 2015 Macon, MO (January 15, 2015) – Ardent is announcing today the expansion of our 2015 Pro Staff Program –“Team Ardent”. New members this year include 4 outstanding B.A.S.S. Elite Series & FLW Tour anglers: Clifford Pirch – B.A.S.S. Elite Series, 3 time US Open Champion “In just 10 years Ardent reels has become one of the leading high-performance reel manufacturers in the world. When I picked up the Ardent reel, the first thing I noticed was that it was light and comfortable. Then when I saw how far it cast, I was sold.” Joe Sancho – B.A.S.S. Elite Series “I am honored to become a member of Team Ardent. Over the years I have watched spinning and baitcast reel developments and while some are functional most of have been gimmicks. As a blue collar angler I focus on quality, dependability, and performance. I have all of those in the new Ardent Apex and Wire spinning reels and I look forward to competing.” Scott Canterbury – FLW Tour “I make my living fishing and not only do I have to rely on hard work and skill but I also have to 100% faith in my equipment. Using Ardent reels all I have to worry about is doing my part. Not only are my reels dependable but they also super smooth and feel extremely good in my hands.” Greg Bohannan – FLW Tour “The Ardent Apex is by far the best reel I have ever thrown. It is extremely light weight and smooth, but tough enough to withstand the abuse of heavy braid and heavy rods that I use”. These top professionals will be joining other long time Team Ardent anglers including Denny Brauer, Fred Roumbanis, James Niggemeyer and Pete Ponds who will be competing in the B.A.S.S. Elite Series, FLW Tour & Major League Fishing tournaments. The Team Ardent program is now entering its 9th year with over 250 North American Anglers who utilize Ardent reels, rods & reel care products. All Team Ardent members will be using a number of new products this year including the Apex Grand, Apex Magnum, Wire, Bolt, Finesse spinning reels & Edge rods.
