The use of a lightweight CI4+ frame and an newly designed Magnumlite spool make the Chronarch MGL the perfect baitcasting reel for serious bass and predator anglers. Lighter and more advanced than ever before, its CI4+ construction in combination with the new Magnumlite spool allowed Shimano to reduce its overall weight, while still maintaining incredible rigidity and strength. Since CI4+ does not contain any metal, it is impervious to rust, making the Chronarch MGL a great reel that can be used for many years to come. Because of additional machining of the new Magnumlite spool its weight is reduced which in turns reduces the startup inertia of the spool, resulting in increased casting distance and a great casting feeling. The new SVS infinity braking system offers a much wider range brake compared to previous SVS infinity which can easily be adjusted by the outer dial on the Chronarch MGL reel. The use of X-Ship ensures making winding efficiency and strength in though situations and the built in level wind delivers line smoothly across the spool. The precisely engineered micro module gears result in seamless gear engagement for a smooth and sensitive operation. For smoothness and durability there are 8 shielded A-RB bearings and a roller bearing.

• Level wind system
• 8 Shielded A-RB bearings and 1 roller bearing
• Star drag adjustment
X-Ship is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano A-RB roller bearings. This creates more stability.
Micromodule: The addition of MicroModule gear technology to the worm shaft idle gear reduces oscillation vibration. This is an incredible breakthrough in design and deliveres an outstanding level smootheness without sacrifising strenght or durability. The encahanced smoothness results in greater sensitivity transmitted from your rod, line and lure to your hand.
Shimano S A-RB bearings are high corrosion resistant A-RB ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt or dust. S A-RB bearings are used in salt water reels.
CI4 is an exclusive material created by the inter-fusion of carbon and polyamide. It is almost as strong as metal with the lightness of a composite. CI4 is used for the body and rotor on many Shimano reels.
CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4. This highly technical material is 2.5 times stiffer than CI4 and is used on many high-end Shimano reels to increase weight savings. Use of CI4+ for the body and rotor also delivers remarkable stiffness for better reel efficiency.
Magnumlite (MGL) spool: In pursuit of effortless casting, Shimano's new Magnum Light spool design incorporates a unique porting technique that allows for precision cut holes to be inserted into the side of the spool. This advancement significantly reduces weight and creates a low moment of inertia.
Super Stopper is a one-way roller bearing that eliminates backplay for solid hooksets.
Level Wind System ensures perfect distribution of line across the spool.
SVS Infinity is Shimano's newest innovation in brake system technology. SVS Infinity provides easy-to-manage consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use inner friction against the raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool speed for precision casting especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides for quick precise adjustments for either the conditions or when you switch baits.
