Antares DC, the long sought after digital control brake version Antares (Calais in the US) is now in market.
The DC brake system has been proven to offer the longest casting distance, since the release of Conquest DC in 2003. The new Antares DC has improved the DC system to have 4 casting modes(L, M, A and W) and 8 strength of fine adjusting, which is adjustable by dial without opening the reel. The 4 modes set the brake to appropriate for various casting situations.
Long casting (L); Achieving the longest casting distance with relatively heavy, metal rigs in calm wind condition.
Multi (versatile) casting (M); The mode is the most likely to be used among the 4 modes. Suite the best for top water, crank baits, spinner baits and etc.
Accuracy casting (A); Brake force is the strongest among 4 modes, offering stable brake tension. Useful for pitching and skipping. Windy casting (W); Allow the best casting in winds from ahead. Great for bulky, light baits as well.

Has anyone actually used this reel? I want to know how it truly handles skipping, and wind. Also does it have any effect on say a er errant cast that you hit a tree? They sound awful nice, but I wanna talk to someone who actually has used it, and how it performed. Is it trully a anti bird's nest/backlash reel, or is it just a little better tuned?

There are three types of Snakes I hate 1. Live Snakes 2. Dead Snakes 3. Sticks that look like Snakes. And Gators too!
