I can’t say enough about how great this reel is. While I love the Curados and Scorpions, IMO this thing just outperforms them.
  • Quality build

One of My Favorite Reels !

My 151 is the reel on my go-to rig for throwing super-light 1/8oz and 1/16oz crab and shrimp imitation lures when i'm chasing after Reds or Flounder. Being so small, it's super lightweight, and it just disappears into the palm of my hand And, with a retrieve that is like spinning glass, it's effortless to cast all morning long.

Have been using Chronarch's for the past 10 years and the CH 150 is as smooth and easy casting as a reel can get. Is worth the extra $$ to go a notch up from the other Shimano reels. But these are great reels too!
  • Smooth casting, if set properly essentially no way to backlash
  • none really

I use it for for plastics with a 1/8 to 1/4 jig head. Casts well and handles fish well. Best iteration of the Chronarch since the 100B.

I have fished spinning tackle almost exclusively. I wanted to give baitcasters a try, and wanted something to stand up to saltwater. This is it. Smooth drag and casts easily.

Shimano always made good freshwater gear
April 4, 2019

Way back 30 years ago plus and when I was younger my family lived a considerable amount further away from my fathers boat in Atlantic Highlands than i do today, so freshwater fishing was my main way of fishing, and my shimano was my go to company. Still have some of my old reels in the garage that still work smooth till this day that are older than my son and daughter.

I need a saltwater baitcast reel for the surf. I wash all my gear thoroughly after each outing, and am consistently aware of the need to avoid dunking my reel, but it seems inevitable...someday it's gonna get dunked. Will this reel survive it?

Hi Dan, With how corrosive saltwater can be, no reel is completely safe from being seized up especially with baitcasters since they have so many moving parts. We don't recommend using a baitcaster in the surf and would recommend a conventional reel such as a Squall II 12 star drag reel ( ). If you are dead set on using a baitcaster in the surf, we recommend the Shimano Tranx 200 as they are designed for saltwater use in either the 150 size ( ), or 200 size ( ). Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with!
