Shimano Chronarch C14 Reel
Model # CH150C14HG

X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By
supporting the pinion gear on both ends with
bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment
with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in
the same position under the heaviest loads. The
added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft
and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the
casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and
allow for longer casts.

Escape Hatch

By flipping a switch, the sideplate swivels downward,
giving the angler quick access to adjust the VBS weights.
The switch is located in a position that is easy to use, yet
remains out of the way to prevent accidental opening.
The sideplate is smooth for comfort when palming the
Super Free (SF)

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 disengaged the pinion
gear and spool shaft are kept in precise alignment.
The result is zero friction on the spool shaft for
increased freespool.
Super Stopper II

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.
S A-RB Bearings

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 bearing's rotation.
Micro Module Gear

The Micro Module Gear System
creates a smooth retrieve. The new
gear set makes use of smaller teeth
and more of them. This means that
there are more contact points
between the drive gear and pinion
gear. The result is a more efficient
gear train with less gear feel.
SVS Infinity Brake System

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.
Shimano’s newest innovation in brake system
technology - SVS Infinity - also enhances casting
accuracy and increases casting distance, especially
when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob
is also in a more convenient position (bottom, left side
of reel) for easier one-handed operation. Available in
three gear ratios, including a blazing fast 8.5:1 gear
ratio, whether you like to flip, throw jerkbaits or drag
worms, there is a Shimano Metanium Casting Reel
perfect for the task.

Built to last, engineered to perform, the Shimano®
Chronarch® CI4+ Baitcasting Reel takes performance
to even higher levels. The SVS Infinity Braking System
exerts gentle braking force in two directions: centrifugal
outward force from adjustable inner pins, and internal
friction force in the concave raceway housing the
external pins. With the addition of X-Ship for incredibly
precise gear engagement and a positively rigid retrieve,
plus an advanced a CI4+ frame that's lighter than and
stronger than aluminum, you've got a super-powered
low-profile baitcaster unlike any other you've ever
They match up perfectly to Shimano's Crucial rods, just

Shimano developed the Chronarch 150 CI4+ Casting
Reel with three of their pinnacle technologies to help
you catch more fish like never before. The rock-solid,
yet light-as-a-feather CI4+ frame is constructed of
reinforced carbon fiber that is 12% lighter than its
aluminum predecessor. X-Ship gear engagement
makes the handle easier to turn from zero to maximum
load, providing 22% more power than previous
models. State-of-the art SVS braking system adjusts to
throw lures that would be troublesome in the wind, a
breeze to cast. Super-high 7.6:1 and precision-perfect
6.2:1 gear ratio options allow you to present your
aquatic temptation more effectively.
