This allows for a more efficient gear train with less gear feel. These reels also feature SVS Infinity, Shimano's newest brake system technology. This provides easy to manage and consistent spool control and brake force.

Features:
  • X-Ship
  • Shielded S-ARB ball bearings
  • Super Stopper II roller bearing
  • Cross carbon drag washers
  • Escape hatch
  • Cold forged aluminum handle shank
  • Septon grips
  • Recessed reel seat foot
  • Magnesium frame with aluminum side plates
  • G Free-spool III magnesium spool

Bright, shining example of exquisite, precision engineering.
If I coulld put only one reel in my boat this'd be it. Use mine for cranking mounted on a St. Croix Legend Glass. Retrieve is so smooth you won't believe. Noticibly lighter than my Calais and Calcutta reels. Dang, Got mine at a closeout sale. Dang they're still pricey. Not a finesse reel but for anything else this reel compares favorably to a Calais or Calcutta.
Pros1. Very, very, very smooth 2. Obvious quality - just reeks of high end engineering 3. Pleasure to use 4. Tough as nails 5. Fairly lightweight 6. Beautiful to look at
Cons1. Very pricey 2. Use this reel and you may not want to use anything else - it will spoil you rotten

Antares Reel Shines Like the Star
Absolutely awesome piece of engineering. Oh, and an awesome casting reel. It’s been almost thirty years since my last Shimano (a Beastmaster V) and I’m finally fishing again. It’s pricey but you get what you pay for so don’t hold back.
ProsEngineering, feel, ease of casting
ConsNone, get the best

What is the difference of XG,HG & MGL on Shimano baitcaster fishing reels
1 Answers
HG means high gear, which is the 7:1 gear ratios. XG is the extra-high gear, which are the 8:1 gear ratios. MGL refers to reels that feature Shimano's Magnumlite Spool technology which enables easier, longer, and more accurate casting with lighter lures.

MOJO BALLIN
Thu, 13 Dec 2018
It took awhile to catch on up north, but southern anglers in the Chesapeake Bay area were onto the striped bass technique of Mojo balling, (a derivative of Parachute jigging), years before the madness trickled up into the New Jersey and New York... Read More
