The Shimano Trinidad is a name that resonates with all Saltwater Anglers. It has earned an impeccable reputation for power and reliability world wide. Shimano's quest for the new Trinidad A was no easy task. Lighter, smaller and more compact were the key physical characteristics and they were accomplished. Shimano's performance goal was to build the best casting reel in this category. Shimano shattered its targets and built a reel for casting which all others will be measured by.
Trinidad A Conventional Reels offer the style, power, and speed that serious sportsmen everywhere need to get the job done. A wide variety of reel sizes ensure that Trinidad A reels can handle a wide variety of angling tasks. Features like Super Free free spool, ergonomic power handles and knobs, and the Super Stopper with Silent Twin Pawl Assist Stopper provide the angler with the extra boost needed for the toughest fish.
Trinidad A Conventional Reels also feature Shimano's E.I. surface treatment which drastically increases the corrosion resistance of the reel. E.I. is used on the spool, frame and sideplate (the most common spots where corrosion begins). This coupled with the use of S A-RB (shielded anti-rust bearings) makes for one of the best saltwater reels ever created. Shimano Trinidad A Conventional Reels include 8 S A-RB bearings and 1 A-RB bearing.
