Here are 2, but they will probably end up with a price over a NEW Chronarch 50e, not worth it IMO. 50e weighs just barely over the 50 mg.Just a suggestion, if you cant find what your looking for, at a good price.

Doesn't MG mean magnesium. Isn't that not good for salt water ?

It corrodes alot easier, thats why alot of people dont buy the core but will buy the next best, the chronarch.

I've seen those cores corroded bad. I will stick with my Chronarchs. 2 oz mean crap to me. I don't know why all these guys that are done by 8 with a limit of trout care about the weight. Seems by their reports that they only throw 40 times a morning anyway.

Why pay 400 for a real meant for bass and won't hold up for salt water. B/C it's the lightest ? The only way I'd get one is if they would swap it as soon as it would corrode. I'm sure it's the baddest thing cranking but hey If you got it $$$ Rock It.
