Chronarch Ci4

32 posts in this topic

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.

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

I own E5,6,7 and a 2500 Ci4. On that note if I was going to be upgrading anytime soon I'd be all over them. May end up just grabbing 1 chronarch.

You said it!! I'll be loading up on the E series Chronarch's if the price is right. I LOVE my E series Citica's & Curado's and was already planning to add a Chronarch E in the 5 ratio for deep cranks so this new model might just come at the exact right time for me. I'm not all that caught up in the "latest & greatest" anymore so I won't mind fishing with "outdated" reels. I'm sure the new Chronarch will be fantastic (and I might just have to pick one up depending on their price) but as I already stated I love the E series reels so my feelings won't be hurt at all to grab 5 or 6 at half price :wink2: .

What is the typical discount for an outgoing model like the Chronarch E? I would love to have several of them!

I would think it would go down further as the year progresses, especially when the new ones start showing up..late fall I would think.  I've seen the Ci4 go on sale lately.  I have a feeling though the Chronarch E series isn't going away though.  The CI4 version will probably be a line of it's own, higher tier than the standard Chronarch.

I highly doubt the Chronarch E will be discontinued.  The controversy generated by the Curado G/Chronarch E introduction would be nothing compared with the firestorm Shimano would get by cutting the Chronarch E at this point.  Though what they should do is go back to calling it a Curado and give the Curado G a different name.

 

Word on the street is the Chronarch Ci4 will come in around $250.  If that's the case, there's no reason at all to get rid of the $200 Chronarch/Curado E.
