The New Antares 70 is Shimano's latest flagship reel. We took it out on Clearlake and put it to the test against some BIG bass! How did it do? Is it worth the money? Let's find out!
The key features of the reel are a smaller, streamlined, Magnesium Hagane body. MGL Spool III for reduced inertia and amazing performance, even with light baits. X-Ship and Micro Module Gearing give the reel that buttery smooth feel and SVS Infinity Braking makes quick adjustments a breeze.
What does all of this mean to you? It means that you're about to pick up the smoothest casting reel you've ever experienced. It will cast light baits with ease but turn around and throw heavy baits a country mile. If you're looking for a top of the line reel that will make fishing even more FUN this is as far as you'll ever need to look!
We have been blessed to purchase a variety of nice equipment over the years and no other reel has had the smoothness and feel of this Antares. In the video we said pre-ordering was available (and it is) but as of this writing there are actually a handful in stock at the link below!
