Default So, you want the Mercedes of Baitcasters ????

Antares 6.2 to 1 (Japan model Calais w/ better bearings) in great condition, purchased last year from Japan Tackle......... http://www.japantackle.com/index.html
Comes with both deep and shallow spool, flawless mechanics but rode in boat many trips. Has very fine scratches, none deep and would polish like new.
8/10 looks and 10/10 bearings & gears. Just got back from cleaning and new drag washers . Paid almost $500 with Shimano Antares shallow "tune up" power spool ($90), will sell for $250 shipped (add 3% PP) or $240 picked up w/ cash. (CO SPRINGS) EMAIL [email protected] Comes w/ box and papers (in Japanese) no wrench/brakes...cant find them...
Thanx for looking,
Todd

Nice! Wish I had some extra cash. I've never had a baitcaster with a spare spool...............what's the advantages of the two?

The reel has the deep spool on it for almost double the line capacity, the shallow spool is for flipping /pitching and gives increased power, just like changing rear end gears in a car. The larger spool diam. (of the shallow) spool gives a higher end gear ratio. This is Shimanos top of the line reel !! (w/o the digital brakes)
I need new toys (new season,got to have the latest zoom-zoom stuff)

Thats a very nice reel you got there, if you were to post like a month ago. Good luck on selling it. Maybe post it on criags list, it might help you sell it faster.
