Chronarch MGL grainy feeling

Postby hokiehi » Wed Feb 21, 2018 12:15 pm

I got the Chronarch last april and it's been a gem since, but recently it's been acting up and feeling really grainy on the retrieve. I had the gears greased but the problem only went away for a very short period of time before returning. Has anyone else had this issue?

It sounds like the gears may need replacement. They do wear with use. I suggest sending the reel in so we can take a look at it.

Will do, thank you

That said, should I expect for this issue to pop up again in my other Chronarch or could it be just a lemon?

The gears should be replaced.
I had a Metanium 13 with the same issue. Buttery smooth ...until, in spite of a thorough maintenance and lubrication, began to feel rough
Brass is stronger in the case of Chronoarch but with time its happening the same ....

Several things can affect gear feel and wear rates. Send the reel in and we will inspect it. There could be a tolerance issue, or just simply a worn set of gears.
