if price isn't a factor,

can I know which reel perform better ? Consider, Smoothness, Casting power, Durability, Versatile, Design.

Freshwater purposes only.

Thank you in advance and lots of love.

    I'd go for the Metanium, you will eventually drop the DC factor, if this is your first DC, you'd want to play with it as it's the flagship model for Shimano in 2016 by the looks of it. I know a lot of anglers that ended up selling their DC's; including me bro.

    I will still go with the Metanium.

    However I put some videos for you together :) One in Japanese so you have no idea what they are saying and so it's PRO!

    Cool! I know that many people dropped the antares DC for the metanium. However i want to know why would you drop an antares ? Is the antares bad compared to the metanium ? Do the digital control breaks down easily ?

    1/ I could not cast the distance I wanted compared to my peers
    2/ My accuracy was somewhat unrealistic as the DC kicked in
    3/ They removed the WEEEEEEEEE sound of the past (lol)

    It all came down to the distance I was able to achieve.

    If you are a beginner in bc reel, the DC function will certainly lower your frustration of luring .

    I actually had some experience in fishing and since the DC is a bonus feature, why not. ;)

    Yes, this is one thing I left out, thanks @Rainbowfish for pointing this out.

    @perfectunicorn But since you know how to work a normal BC, you have the luxury of choosing which one you want to play with.

    Experience in using BC reel before for casting ? Experience in fishing does not translate to experience to using bc setup:)
