Chronarch 50mg for cranking

Recommended Posts

I know the 50mg was designed for throwing small baits and finesse fishing.  So I thought it may be good for small cranks/jerkbaits.  I had one just sitting around collecting dust so I put it on a 6'6 crucial M/MF crankbait rod.  It feels awesome!  I am gonna try it out Sunday at dale hollow cause them smallies are supposedly hitting those bandit 200's real well.  Anyone else use a 50mg for cranking?  How do you like it?

For shallow, mid running and lipless cranks ---> purty good

For deep divers ---> fair

It's one of my go to reels for smaller shallow cranks and jerkbaits.  I don't toss anything larger than say a RC 1.5 or a bandit 200 series.  It's definitely a favorite of mine for these techniques.

The Core 50 MG is also great for the same cranks.

Bronzefly,

How does it handle Bandit 300's?  With this cold snap today I think it may move them out a little bit by tomorrow.

Hey Kev-O

 The bandit 300 isn't really a heavy resistance crank, so it would be fine with them.  I toss my 300's with a TD-Z Type R+ but on occasion I'll use the 50mg and it's been fine.  I just don't like higher resistance baits with the 50mg.

I used the 300's yesterday and they were fine on the 50mg.  I did manage one smallie about 12" with the bandit.  Sunny days at the hollow arent good cranking days.  The jigs was the weapon of choice yesterday.
