Shimano Antares ANT101 Casting Reel is the Flagship in Shimano's low-profile baitcasting reel line-up. Think "Best-of-the-Best here. The Antares reels are offered in two gear ratios for multiple freshwater fishing techniques. The Antares ANT100 (RH) and ANT101 (LH) are 5.6:1 retrieve ratio. The Antares ANT100HG (RH) and ANT101HG (LH) are 7.4:1 retrieve. All Antares reels offer the ultimate in long distance casting performance with Shimano's innovative Micro Module Gear System, plus with a lightweight Magnesium frame and spool, it's built to be fished hard.
Shimano Antares ANT100 Casting Reel is not only the best reel Shimano has ever offered, but it's also one of the most innovative with Shimano's new Micro Module Gear System which creates an unbelievably smooth, almost effortless 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" and the ability to throw casts that will amaze you with both distance and accuracy!
The Antares reels feature Shimano's newest innovation in brake system technology, SVS. This system provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use 'inner friction' against the raceway during the cast, SVS controls spool speed for precision casting especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments when either the conditions change or when you switch baits.
Also included in these state-of-the-art low profile casting reels is Shimano's X-Ship technology which provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer, more precise casts.
If you are looking for the world's best low profile casting reel and unwilling to compromise in any way then the Shimano Antares is your reel!
