Shimano's Trinidad family of reels was the first to marry speed and power in a size and shape that made it a joy to put the hammer down on saltwater game fish. The Trinidad A version reduced the overall frame size of the reels while increasing line capacity and maintaining the incredible versatility afforded by the reel that defined the word castability. The 30A can handle over a thousand yards of 50-pound Power Pro, more than 500 yards of 65-pound braid and 400-plus yards of 80-pound, meaning this tightly engineered beauty is effective across the spectrum of saltwater techniques. Just add the top shot to match your target species.
