chronarch mg - lure weight question

Recommended Posts

im thinking about buying another one but havent had a chance to use mine yet.

i understand this is not the best reel for heavier baits/line. what is the heaviest lure and largest diameter of line you would use with the chronarch mg?

have used jigs up to 1/2 oz. with no problem...with braid.

with mono or fluoro, 15# is about the limit as far as casting performance...can get by with 20# if pitching.

that said, there are arguably better reels out there for those apps...finesse is where it shines, imo.

The Chronarch Mg won 't hold much heavy line, it 's a reel that does well with 6,8,10 and pushing the line capacity limits with 12 lbs test.

But the low heavier line capacity issue can be solved, you get the reel, then order a Citica 100D spool assembly from Shimano and voilá, there you got it, a Chronarch Mg with spool capacity for heavier than 12 lbs line.  :)
