Shimano announces specialist freshwater baitcast reel


SHIMANO says ultra-lightweight and top level performance is the best way to describe the new freshwater specialist Chronarch MGL baitcaster.

Shimano’s new Magnum Light spool design incorporates a unique porting technique that allows for precision cut holes to be inserted into the side of the spool.

This significantly reduces weight and creates a low moment of inertia, meaning that less effort is required to propel the spool into motion when cast resulting in a 15 per cent increase in casting distance.

Shimano says the new SVS Infinity brake system allows for fine-tuning using the external dial and perfectly compliments the Magnum Light spool.

To further enhance precision, Micro Module and X-Ship combine to form a powerful yet precise gear system that is available in two ratios, 6.2:1 and 7.1:1.

When under load the MGL outputs 5kg of drag and Shimano’s CI4+ body construction enables the Chronarch MGL to weigh in at a mere 185gm.
