The Antares employs innovative features to make it at the summit of Shimano bait casters. The most noticeable feature is micro module gear system, which has much smaller gears than previous models, to drastically improve the gearing noise. Brake is variable SVS Infinite centrifugal system, and you may adjust the centrifugal brake force from out side. It employs corn shaped level winder inner to reduce line friction in casting. Magnesium alloy G Free Spool 3 spool removes weight from spool to maximize casting performance. Mr. Hajime Murata is said to cast 99m 110yds 5/8oz casting plug with the Antares. Freshwater only.

Micro Module Gear
The Micro Module Gear System creates a smooth 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.
Shimano's newest innovation in brake system technology, SVS Infinity provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use inner friction against the raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool speed for precision casting especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments for either the conditions or when you switch baits.
