Developed by Shimano USA, The low profile Chronarch CI4+ baitcaster has been constructed using the best component and technology previously used in the Chronarch 50MG and the Core 50MG. When combined with the use of CI4+ material in the body and frame this release delivers a stronger and lighter baitcaster that are a pure pleasure to use.

The super-lightweight, cold forged and machine-cut 7075 aluminium spool complements this important weight saving. so the reel comes in at a whopping 27 grams lighter than its predecessor. This makes the Chronarch CI4+ perfect for all day casting from the boat, shore, rivers and lakes around New Zealand.

X-Ship is at the heart of this stunning baitcaster, where a bearing-supported pinion gear and oversized drive gear combine to deliver solid and reliable performance, aided by seven SA-RB bearings, increased castability thanks to Shimano's exclusive SVS centrifugal braking system that enhances this reels reputation s a high performance fishing tool.

Available from all good Shimano dealers throughout New Zealand.

HEG consists of not only the gears, but also the frame, setplate, and handle-side sideplate. First we increased the size of the drive gear and the pinion gear to offer increased leverage and power. By using a one-piece frame that incorporates the setplate and adding a one-piece stamped sideplate, we have eliminated flex in the drivetrain that causes normal gears to bind under pressure. By eliminat...
These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.
The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is di...
A system used for easy and fast one-handed casting. The line and trigger self-center, and are within easy grasp of the angler's index finger. By pulling the line and the trigger with one hand, the bail opens and is ready to be cast.
Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that eliminates backplay.This provides the angler with instant hooksetting power. In some reels, the Super Stopper II can be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and situations.
By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with our S-ARB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation, giving a perfect rotation even under heavy loads.
