I am currently trying to decide if I should get the Antares 12 or wait until the 19 comes out. It’s on the website, but idk when it will be released. Anyone want to weigh in?

 I would definitely wait for the new one. The 12 Antares is still a great reel in quality and size! By that i mean its bulky and heavy, i´ve seen a pic of the new 19 next to the 12 and it looks way smaller, plus the new one has the latest version of the SVS brakes wich i prefer to the original one (less need for constant lubing and less noise on the cast).

 

 With that being said... if you find a 12 one for a great price, now that´s being descontinued, then in that case yes... it could be a good alternative, but even in that case i think i would go with the 19.

Thanks for the advice. The 12 I was looking at was not on sale, so I’m just gonna wait.

Do u know what the price is going to be for the 19? Don’t really want to spend more than $650
