Can include JDM models, but not Calais (I know these are technically the same platform but I am interested in how many "Antares" branded reels you own.

No Antares but one Calais 100A. Love it! I had a 200A as well but sold it years ago.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you're being trolled.

I own 21 shimano tekota's....but I troll more than I cast....(more to life than bass).

I can't imagine owning 20 bass fishing reels of the same type.

I had one and it was a disappointment, it was the current JDM model 151HG, it was not as good in any respect as the Metanium 151HG, and not worth the money, I fished mine side by side with a Lew's Tourney Pro one day and was shocked to find the Lew's just worked better, the next day my Antares was on ebay.
