Designed to excel at inshore and bluewater applications alike - the Shimano Trinidad 12 A Jigging Reel is unbelievably compact but has all the latest Shimano technologies included. The ultra lightweight cold-forged aluminium Magnumlite spool and one-piece side plate and frame feature Electronic Ionisation (EI) surface treatment plus chrome-plated screws for the kind of extreme corrosion protection you need in the saltwater environment. The Trinidad A is rated for mono, fluoro and braided lines.
Aluminium Cold Forged Spool
These spools provide strength and durability over diecast aluminium or graphite spools.
E.I. Anti-Corrosion Surface Treatment
After the ionisation process is finished, the 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.
Super Stopper uses a one-way bearing that eliminates back play. This provides the angler with instant hook setting power.
By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with the S-ARB bearings and integrating bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation; less effort and power giving a perfect rotation even under heavy loads.
