Shimano JDM Antares 2012-

Shimano high-end bait caster, Antares is the smoothest ever bait casting reel.

The The new Antares employs innovative features to make it smooth and comfort for every aspect.  The most noticeable feature is micro module gear system, which has twice the number of gear teeth than previous models, to drastically reduce the gearing noise.

Jun's comments:  Silky smooth bait casting reel ever. SVS Infinite system offers the ultimate comfort in adjusting brake force for centrifugal system. This reel casts well for heavier than 10gram 3/8oz. This reel casts the longest among Shimano bait casters with centrifugal brake, for 99m by Shimano testing with 5/8oz sinker and 14lb (0.33mm) nylon.
