Product Info for SHIMANO Antares 101 Left Hand Low Profile Baitcasting Reel (ANT101)

The flagship in Shimano's low-profile baitcasting reel line-up, the new, US version of the Shimano Antares Reels offers the ultimate in long distance casting performance, smooth retrieve and quiet operation. For years American anglers turned to secondary markets and online Japanese retailers to find the Antares Casting Reels. A reel with as much of a storied history and tackle enthusiast following as any on the market today, the Antares has finally arrived stateside. Although re-imagined slightly for the US market, the Shimano Antares Casting Reels maintain the same level of quality, in both components and performance, that established the Japanese models among the finest in the bass fishing game. Among the features worth highlighting, Shimano's new SVS Infinity Braking system tops the list. This technology provides easy-to-manage spool control and consistent braking force which affords improved casting accuracy with a far lower frequency of overruns and noticeably improved lure placement; this is especially true with light lures that are often a real pain to fish. In addiition to the SVS Braking System, the new Micro Model Gear System is quite intriguing. Japanese bass fishermen are perhaps the most detail oriented in all the world as tackle manufacturers and anglers alike reflect Japanese society as a whole which has a tradition of adopting new technology quickly. The Micro Module Gear System utilizes a greater number of and smaller gear teeth which provides more contact points between the drive gear and pinion gear. As a result, the reeling process is smoother, more efficient and very quiet while also offering improved durability and precise alignment. While this may appear seemingly insignificant, once you fish the Antares, you'll completely understand the benefits of this technology.
