Chronarch 101BSV

Recommended Posts

Ive noticed these Chronarchs are on sale at our local cabelas.  What do you think of them?  Im looking for a new reel for my cranking stick and my finesse" rod.  They guy at cabelas said they will do all of that but i thought i better asks the experts here first :) Or maybe ill jump up to the new D.

Get the D. I fished with a B for a little while and I liked it, but it was a little heavy. I am not small person, but I just love light gear. The D was also much smoother than the B. If you have the cash for a new D, then I would go for it. You will never look back. Also, I do not think one reel will work for both those techniques. If you are looking for a cranking reel, then go with the 5:1 D; a finesse reel, then it's the 7:1. If both rods need a reel and you have $500 then there is the answer.

*Also look at the Curado E's.

Mainly use lipless cranks and shallow divers on that rod and the weight was a concern.  Also does the larger spool size affect throwing those light lures?  Since its a salt water version it adds a little extra spool capasity.
