Key Shimano Technologies in the Chronarch MGL Reels:
- Micro Module Gear: This state-of-the-art gear design incorporates smaller teeth to create a more efficient gear train, resulting in a smoother retrieve.
- X-Ship: By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, X-Ship ensures precise alignment with the drive gear, even under heavy loads. This reduces friction between the spool shaft and gear, enhancing casting performance and increasing gear durability.
- MGL Spool: The lightweight spool design reduces inertia, allowing for greater casting distance and accuracy when using a wide range of lures.
- SVS Infinity: This braking system provides consistent and easy-to-manage spool control. The brake force can be adjusted quickly and precisely to adapt to changing conditions or baits. The inner friction of the brake weights against the raceway ensures precise casting, even with lighter lures. The external adjustment knob allows for on-the-fly adjustments.
