Weighing in at only 6.5oz, the Shimano Chronarch 150 CI4 Casting Reel takes reel performance to a whole new level. Lighter and more advanced than ever before, its CI4+ construction allowed Shimano to greatly reduce its overall weight, while still maintaining incredible rigidity and strength. Actually 250% stronger than the original CI4 material, CI4+ is also over one-and-a-half times stronger than Shimano’s normal XT-7 graphite and is over 20% lighter as well. Since CI4+ does not contain any metal, it is impervious to rust, making the Chronorch CI4+ a great choice for fishing saltwater or brackish water.
The patented X-Ship Gearing also increases cranking power more than 205 to help you tame the hardest fighting fish. Its eight S-ARB bearing system (7+1) keeps things running smoothly, and its new SVS Infinity Casting System delivers a wide range of precision brake adjustments, consistent brake force, and easier access. Winner of the 2013 ICAST “Best of Show” in the Freshwater Reel category, the Shimano Chronarch 150 CI4 Casting Reel delivers the high-end performance anglers have come to expect from Shimano.
