The next generation of Shimano's flagship baitcasting series is here. The Antares A combines unrivaled casting performance with an elegant and sophisticated design. Featuring our new MGL III spool, Antares' spool inertia has been reduced by 17% for effortless, accurate casting of both lightweight and heavy lures. Additionally, S3D Spool and Silent Tune minimize bearing vibration for smoother and quieter casts. Antares' magnesium Hagane Body provides a lightweight rigidity unmatched in its class. X-Ship and MicroModule Gearing offer silky smooth rotation while SVS Infinity braking allows for precision adjustments on the fly.
