Jun's comment: Among 16 Antares DC, 17 Exsence DC and 18 Antares DC MD, this 17 Essence DC has the least brake profile, possibly to be able to cast the logest. Exsence DC has the finely tuned brake for slim, well balanced minnow baits with weight moving systems. Those minnow baits flies like rockets, and therefore has the lease air dragging in casting. The DC system has been adjusted to the well flying baits, allowing them to cast the longest.
