Was talking to my Shimano rep and he was mentioning that Shimano has a few new things coming. First is a Chronarch CI4 baitcaster. An in between reel prices between the chronarch & core, coming in at $280. He also mentioned that a stradic CI4 with x-ship is coming!

Good to see shimano changing things up in 2013

Isn't the ci4 /w xship called the rarenium(sp?). I think it's offered in europe or someplace. It would be great for it to come to the US. It's a nice looking reel.

It will be a good year before we see them though.  Also the E6 has been out for a few years now and has proven itself. I'm not dumping all of mine for the new ones for some time. I went through hell trying to find something that works lol

Me too lol. Every REVO I owned has been swapped out at least once. I will say that the Chronarch feels much better made than the Revos, but it could be because it's heavier lol.

I considered trying my first Abu Garcia Revo BC, until I read your issues.  I was going to pull a trigger on a S that was on sale locally at $84.99.  Thanks for that!  Instead I spent the money on 2 Chronarch 50Mg.

It's a great reel, don't get me wrong. I enjoyed fishing with it, but there was always some issue popping up with it. My first STX felt like it was bound up, so I swapped it and it's flawless. My first SX had an issue with the spool not engaging after a cast, a swap later it's flawless. Had I swapped my S, it would've been 3 times and that's absurd. Got a Chrony instead. I kinda miss my S though.

Some people are in a hurry for an answer and don't take the time to post in the right forum. It happens.

I will be buying both when they come out  :respect-059:

 

Im excited about the chronarch, not so much about the ci4, i feel like the new ci4 will basically be a sustain fg, not much of a difference besides rapid fire drag and x-ship.

You're right, but seems to me, if you are in a hurry, posting in the right forum would get faster results. But then again, I'm using my brain...lol
