Shimano Antares Baitcasting Reels


Please, select one


I can get the ANT100 model right now. There is another right handed model which should be coming in November and both of the left handed models should be in around November as well. If you want to pre-order any of the other models, I will keep your name and information and let you know the second I get them in.

Pre-Order - If you check out one of the Pre-Order reels, I will NOT charge your credit card. I manually ring up all transactions and I wont do that until I have the reel in my hands. I will keep your information and let you know the second it arrives, then after your approval I will ship it.

These are the brand new Shimano Antares Baitcasting reels and they are simply put, awesome! This is the nicest of the nicest baitcasting reels, it reminds me of a Shimano Calais or similar reel.


Delivering Ultimate Long Distance Casting Performance

The flagship in Shimano's low-profile baitcasting reel line-up, the Antares reels - offered in two gear ratios for multiple freshwater fishing techniques features the ultimate in long distance casting performance. With Shimano's innovative Micro Module Gear System, plus a
lightweight Magnesium frame, it's built to be fished hard.

Micro Module Gear
The Micro Module Gear System creates a smooth retrieve. The new gear set makes use of smaller teeth and more of them. This means that there are more contact points between the drive gear and pinion gear. The result is a more efficient gear train with less gear feel.

SVS Infinity
Shimano's newest innovation in brake system technology, SVS Infinity provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use inner friction against the raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool speed for precision casting especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments for either the conditions or when you switch baits.
