Braided line offers unrivalled bite indication, contact and feel throughout a saltwater session. It also brings extra demands to a rod. Shimano’s new Antares BX Braid series is purpose-designed to get the very best from this line material. All three of this 7ft 6in family have two piece construction plus high-end features such as the seriously sexy Fossilwood reel seats plus Fuji SiC guides. The prayers of boat braid anglers have been answered.
