shimano chronarch 100b VS shimano curado e7 (help which one should i get)

Recommended Posts

Both of them are awesome reels, which one do you prefer and better. I'm very not sure which one to get.

PS: Should i sell my 2007 quantum tour edition pt baitcasting reel?

Thanks guys

Well, I have the 101 bpv chronarch. I compared the e7, as that was the reel I really wanted, But...I played around with the chronarch, and to me, it felt noticably smoother. On the downside, I would have prefered the faster ratio of the e7, so I have my chronarch as my dedicated swimbait reel, which it works very well at..

I doubt you'd be disapointed with either one..get the one that suits your application best.

Don't know about the 101 ,but have two E 7 and love them that is a hard reel to beat as for the Quantam I all so have a tour and thats a nice reel all so if there is notning wrong with it why sell it just buy other rod to put it on.

I agree with Hammer.  I have both reels and think the Chronarch 100 is a better reel.  The only downside to the reel is that it is heavier than the Curado 200E.  I have the 100BPV version also and it is an excellent cranking reel.

Well, I have a few Shimano reels, including the

Core, Calais, Metanium, Chronarch, CTE200GT,

Scorpion and CH50MG.

Of all the reels I own, regardless of price, I would

recommend the new Curado 200E7. You really don't

need to spend any more money for a great reel!

I agree with Road Warrior, I have almost every high end reel Shimano has ever made with the exception of a Calais, it was too heavy for me. The new Curado's are very hard to beat for the money.

Fished with the new chronarch last weekend.  I believe it was the 100D7.  Anyway, it was incredibly smooth and really casted far.  However, I have been using the Curado 200E7 since it came out and I can honestly say the chronarch is not that much better.  I compared it to a curado that i just had serviced and the curado casted just as far as the chronarch, but the chronarch was smoother.  120$ smoother?  I think not.

I have the Chronarch 100b and the Chronarch 100bpv as well as a Curado. I got the Chronarchs on clearance from Tackle Warehouse for $186.00. If you can find a Chronarch 100b at that price, I would highly reccomend it.

Bird Dog I bought 3 of the Chronarch 100b reels from that same sale, I've been very pleased it's a fantastic reel.
