The Shimano Chronarch C14+ has been developed as an ultra lightweight range of baitcaster fishing reels. Shimano has managed to improve upon the design of the original Chronarch reels by cutting 27g of excess weight. Along with being remarkably lighter, the reels are also stronger – Shimano has again developed yet another exceptional design to benefit anglers all over the world.
Magicians don’t normally share their secrets, but thankfully Shimano does. The secret element responsible for lowering the weight and increasing the strength of the reels is C14+, which is a rare blend of carbon and polyamide. The durability of Chronarch C14+ reels will also impress you, as performance is maintained for a long time to come.
Another key element in the performance of Shimano C14+ reels is X-Ship technology. Basically, these baitcaster reels have an oversized drive gear and bearing-supported pinion gear to ensuring retrieve per crank of 66cm or 80cm for the HG model. The X-Ship gearing is also boosted by high efficiency gearing (HEG), which improves leverage and boosts power.
There are two right hand models and two left hand models in the Shimano Chronarch C14+ range. All of the baitcaster reels come with seven stainless bearings, one roller bearing and 5kg of drag power. Depending on which model you choose, there is a gear ratio of either 6.2:1 or 7.5:1. Shimano has your baitcasting needs covered with these tremendous lightweight reels.
