hmm...too frugal to spring for the Antares AR's..
The other answer would be that line capacity sucks on the Antares....

According to the Shimano Jp website, they both have 34mm x 19mm spools....maybe the Met USA version is different, but I doubt it.

I know I know. I don't like them myself but at times they have their purpose.

Caught my first fish on that rig this weekend. So it's broke in. Really like the new casting rods I built.

I havent used my shimano discount codes yet, but I won't be buying near that much stuff when I do. That's a stockpile. I used to be a guy who wanted all my stuff to match for a congruent lineup, so I can appreciate that.

These are codes from a shimano rep. We used to call them 'pro-staff' deals (even though you aren't actually a staffer), where you get a form to order 10 or 12 items at 50% off. Now days they give you a code to order directly from the manufacturers website. The shimano codes come 2 per flyer and you can order 6 items per code. 50% off rods...40 off reels. The harder to get daiwa code is 10 items at 50%.

My counting could be wrong, but I think there is a rod without a partner. Next purchase?
Yeah, your counting is off. 19 rod/reel combos and they all have partners. No new purchases right now, but I did just get all 5 of my custom F5 swimbait rods....
