TRINIDAD A Overhead

The best star-drag casting reel ever made by Shimano. Unbelievably compact compared with previous models, the latest generation of the venerable series excels at inshore and blue-water applications alike - just like you would expect from reels bearing the Trinidad name.

All the latest Shimano technologies are included; Ultra light weight cold-forged aluminum Magnumlite® spool and one-piece side plate and frame 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 ultra slick freespool.

The Trinidad A series of reels are 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.

Along with being packed with features, the Shimano Trinidad A is an absolutely stunning looking reel in anodized silver with a eye-catching white and black handle configuration.

TRINIDAD A FEATURES

HAGANE Body means this reel has a high rigidity and zero twist. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the anglers actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.

The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is di...
After the anodisation process is finished, a second layer of surface treatment is added. This treatment is forced into the remaining surface impurities. This gives salt no hideout and also results in an extremely smooth to-the-touch finish. A reel with E.I. treatment has more than double the corrosion resistance of a standard anodised reel.
These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.

Shimano New Zealand provides a TEN YEAR WARRANTY on all Shimano fishing reels, against defects in materials and/or faulty workmanship.
