Built to last, engineered to perform, the newest version of the legendary Shimano Chronarch baitcasting reel takes performance to even higher levels. The SVS Infinity Braking System exerts gentle braking force in two directions: centrifugal outward force from adjustable inner pins, and internal friction force in the concave raceway housing the external pins. With the addition of X-Ship for incredibly precise gear engagement and a positively rigid retrieve, plus an advanced a CI4+ frame that's lighter than and stronger than aluminum, you've got a super-powered low-profile baitcaster unlike any other you've ever palmed. They match up perfectly to Shimano's Crucial rods, just in case you're looking for a perfect pairing. Other benefits that come standard are High Efficiency Gearing (HEG); Super Free bearing supported pinion gear system; A7075 aluminum Magnumlite™ spool; Dartainium® 2 drag washer; 8 bearing system (7SARB bearings + 1 ARB roller bearing); Super Stopper® II anti-reverse with Assist Stopper; Septon PV power grips; titanium IP line guides; double-anodized spool and handle; Disengaging Levelwind System; and QuickFire II® clutch bar.

By far the best reel I have ever used. Very smooth operation. Very powerful, catching 27" redfish like nothing.

Simple and easy to use. Be sure to read the instructions and set the breaks. 20lb test glides off the reel. Very light and great gearing. Its a close 2nd to the core. I'm very impressed.

I own two of the newest Chronarch 200 series reels and 1 Curado and this reel puts them all to shame. Granted, the Chronarchs and Curado are great reels but the responsiveness of this reel is unparalleled especially for the price. This real literally takes everything from the Core series and improves upon it (minus the Magnesium sideplates of course which are extremely durable in all conditions). Casting this reel is silky and with the new braking system I was able to cast directly into the wind this past weekend with 15mph constant winds (30mph gusts) with no backlash and it still cast very far. I loaded up on a 3.5 pound smallie and reeled her in like it was nothing. I would highly suggest getting the 7:6:1 gear ratio as it allows you to keep tension on those fast moving fish... All I can say is I will be buying a lot more of these very soon!
