Super Stopper

Super Stopper uses a one-way,
stainless steel roller bearing that
eliminates backplay. This provides
the angler with instant hooksetting
power.
Shimano Trinidad A Model # TN30A
E.I. Surface Treatment

With E.I., after the anodization 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.
(So don?t forget to back your spool with tape or a
few wraps of mono before installing your
PowerPro A reel with the E.I. Surface treatment
has more than double the corrosion resistance of
a standard anodized reel.
S A-RB Bearings

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 bearing's rotation.
Super Free (SF)

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 disengaged the pinion gear and spool
shaft are kept in precise alignment. The result is
zero friction on the spool shaft for increased
freespool.
Variable Brake System (VBS)

VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to
aid in controlling the cast. The individual brake
weights, when turned on, are forced outward at
the beginning of the cast when backlashes most
often occur, causing friction that reduces the
speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins
to slow, the pressure lessens, allowing the spool
to continue spinning. The result is a much more
consistent spool speed that is easier to manage
and takes advantage of the reel's maximum
casting distance. Settings range from zero
weights turned on for true freespool and up to 6
weights turned on for extremely windy conditions
and maximum cast control.
X-Ship

X-Ship provides improved gear
durability. By supporting the pinion
gear on both ends with bearings,
the pinion gear maintains precise
alignment with the drive gear. This
means the gears will stay in the
same position under the heaviest
loads. The added benefit is that
friction between the spool shaft and
gear are eliminated. This will
enhance the casting performance
of the reel with lighter lures, and
allow for longer casts.
High Effeciency Gearing (HEG)

HEG consists of not only the gears, but also the
frame, setplate, and handle-side sideplate. First
we increased the size of the drive gear and the
pinion gear to offer increased leverage and
power. By using a one-piece frame that
incorporates the setplate and adding a one-piece
stamped sideplate, we have eliminated flex in the
drivetrain that causes normal gears to bind under
pressure. By eliminating the flex and increasing
the leverage, we are able to provide high-speed
retrieves and deliver an incredible amount of
torque, while maintaining the smooth, silent
retrieve Shimano reels are famous for.

Trinidad is a name that resonates with all
Saltwater Anglers. It has earned an impeccable
reputation for power and reliability world wide. Our
quest for the new 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. We
shattered our targets and have built a reel for
casting which all others will be measured by.
