Shimano Trinidad

Product Information

Unbelievably compact compared with previous models, the latest generation of the venerable series excels at blue-water applications – just like you’d expect from reels bearing the Trinidad name. Trinidad is a name that resonates with all Saltwater Anglers. It has earned an impeccable reputation for power and reliability world wide. Lighter, smaller and more compact were the key physical characteristics and they were accomplished. The performance goal was to build the best casting reel in this category. We shattered our targets and have built a reel for casting which all others will be measured by.

All the latest Shimano technologies are included. Ultralightweight cold-forged aluminum Magnumlite® spool and one-piece sideplates both feature Electronic Ionization (EI) surface treatment and chrome-plated screws for the kind of extreme corrosion protection you need in saltwater. Eight Shielded A-RB® bearings ensure super-smooth performance. Lightweight spool benefits from the Super Free (SF®) system, encouraging ultraslick freespool. Reel is rated for monofilament, fluorocarbon and PowerPro® braided lines. High Efficiency Gearing (HEG®) and X-Ship gear support system increases efficiency power and overall smoothness. Dartainium® II drag for superior braking and durability. Cold-forged AL Drag Star with Micro-Click. Super Stopper® with silent twin-pawl assist stopper. Manual metal clutch lever with corrosion prevention pad. Adjustable handle shank. Lightweight ergonomic handle knob. Durable metal rod clamp.
