Trinidad is a name that resonates with all Saltwater Anglers. It has earned an impeccable reputation for power and reliability worldwide. Shimano's quest for the Trinidad A was no easy task. 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. Shimano shattered their targets and have built a reel for casting which all others will be measured by.
