20 Metanium vs Chronarch 51mg or 101D7 casting?

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

20 Metanium vs Chronarch 51mg or 101D7 casting?

Post by karirick » Mon Sep 14, 2020 4:26 pm

Does the 2020 Metanium outcast the Chronarch 51mg or 101D7? Haven't really fished SVS infinity reels yet.

Thanks.

I haven't conducted a head to head specifically, but that new Met casts really nicely... comparable to my current generation Conquest 101DC

That 20 Metanium outcasts my 17 Chronarch MGL FWIT (and that Chronarch is a good caster).

So do people now like SVS more than VBS? I'm old and stubborn; so change isn't always a good thing.

The new Met seems to check all boxes I would want though.

Yes... but even more important are the initials "MGL"

The newest version of svs (all the mgl spools) is very nice. I just turn on all 4 and adjust with the dial like a daiwa. It covers short range pitching and skipping and long range bombs.

Old and stubborn as well, I hated the SVS at first. I was trying to fish it like the VBS and failed. After a few cut out spools I had it dialed in, like the above poster said set all 4 and use the dial. I have the Met 20 and the Bantam MGL and absolutely love their feel and performance. The Met does weightless better for me but they both are my go to reels for plastics right now. Looking to get a Curado 70 mgl to add to the lineup.
