Conclusion: In 2008 Ardent introduced one of the most unique
reels on the market, plainly put the F-500 simply looked like no other reel out there. This
reel's front end has no levelwind but just a guide to feed the line through. It's designed specifically for the bass fishing technique of
flipping. The reel has an extremely narrow spool and thus no levelwind was
needed. Well, this year at ICAST Ardent has introduced the Denny Brauer
Signature F-700 Flip-N-Pitch reel which is specifically designed to Denny's specifications which
include adding a flipping switch onto the reel. This is as application specific
as it gets, and if your a flipping fanatic this reel is one you should be sure
to check out.
