The Antares DC MD, the pinnacle freestyle reel, has evolved into a model with even more fighting power by incorporating the low-inertia MGL Spool III and the NEW 4×8DC MD TUNE. ×The synergistic effect of the 8DC MD TUNE's exceptional brake control precision has resulted in longer casting performance and trouble-free casting that surpasses conventional casting performance. In addition to the micro-modular gear that provides silky rotation performance, an even stronger support structure has been adopted by increasing the drive gear shaft support bearing. This reduces handle rattling for smoother reeling. The sleek body conveys a sense of dynamism and reliability. A solid history of accumulation. This is the pinnacle of freestyle DC, leading anglers who aim high to even greater heights.


Equipped with MGL Spool III, which maintains the high line capacity of 20lb x 100m, essential for strong game, while instantly rising to a high trajectory and long casting performance. While the spool diameter is 38mm like its predecessor, the width has been narrowed by 1mm to 21mm. The low-inertia spool, which is lighter in weight by achieving a thinner wall that maintains excellent strength, raises the existing casting performance to an even higher level.

New DC 4x8 MD Tuned

The brake system is equipped with the New 4×8 DC MD TUNE, whose settings have been redesigned to optimize the MGL Spool III, which has achieved low inertia. We thoroughly analyzed a vast amount of data obtained through repeated testing and trial and error. We have achieved exceptional brake control accuracy. This reduces backlash while maximizing spool rotation loss, directly leading to high long cast performance that seems to go anywhere. The synergistic effect of the New 4×8 DC MD TUNE and the low-inertia MGL Spool III delivers astonishing casting performance.

The internal dial has four levels: F (fluorocarbon), P (PE), and N (nylon) modes, as well as XB mode, which is a mode for casting large lures and long lines that have air resistance. Once the setting is determined according to the line and lure used, all that remains is to fine-tune the 8-step external dial to achieve comfortable casting.

The number of bearings is 12 in total, one more than the conventional 11. One more bearing has been added to the support of the drive gear shaft, which is the key to the driving force, greatly improving the rigidity of the handle when reeling in. This reduces rattling of the handle, resulting in smoother reeling.

"The pinnacle of freestyle DC. That is Antares DC MD."


The new Antares DC MD is the most powerful long casting reel in the history of DC, far surpassing the 16 Antares DC, which is said to be the fastest flying reel in the history of DC. The New 4×8 DC MD TUNE is worthy of the flagship in terms of long casting performance and trouble-free performance. Even those who have been able to set the external dial to XB mode and use it only up to 4 can now drop it to 3 for even greater casting distance. Trouble? No worries there. This new DC will help...anyone who could use up to 3 can go to 2. In other words, anyone can experience a trouble-free flight of another dimension with one dial lower than before. Once you can bring the lure close to the monster's location, you can use the 45mm handle with a small turning radius to take advantage of the reeling length of the HG and XG lures to play the speed game. Even after the lure is hooked, the increased rigidity of the handle will, of course, give us an advantage. All that remains is to catch the fish.
