Shimano Chronarch SF

Shimano Chronarch SF

The Chronarch SF is the tried-and-true Chronarch baitcaster. The model we used came with the large-diameter, ultralight (read: light with fast reaction to cast control) skeletonized spool and an all-metal construction, new this year on all of Shimano's reels. Almost all testers agreed that the SF casts beautifully.
