Shimano Antares

Product Information

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.

Equipped with Shimano’s new Micro Module Gear System as well, the new system utilizes smaller teeth and more of them to provide more contact points between the drive gear and pinion gear. This results in more efficient, smoother functioning, and combined with the X-Ship gear construction also provides improved durability and more precise alignment. Its lightweight magnesium frame and choice of two gear ratios also make the Shimano Antares perfect for multiple freshwater applications. Designed to stand up to the abuse of relentless fishing, the Metanium offers a level of refinement unmatched in the industry.
