Shimano’s new Chronarch 100BSV baitcaster ($269.99) is designed specifically for salt water use and features a high-speed (6.2:1) gear ratio and plenty of line capacity (150 yds./10 lb. test) on the deep, corrosion-resistant aluminum spool. Oversized paddle handles coated with slip-resistant material provide a sure grip when retrieving lures or fighting fish, while six anti-rust bearings and a Super Stopper one-way roller bearing ensure smooth, trouble-free operation. The drag features Shimano’s Super-Free and Variable Braking system with removable brake weights. Shimano American Corp., Irvine, CA; (877) 577-0600; www.shimano.com.
