Product Description

The Shimano Trinidad A TN12A Star Drag Reel would be like the Infiniti G35 coupe – small, compact, powerful, incredibly agile, and most importantly, a great value for your money. While it’s not super cheap, it’s also not grossly expensive and you get so much technology for your dollar here. We’re talking the best that Shimano has to offer including the amazing X-Ship technology which places a ball bearing at each end of the pinion gear to keep it in perfect alignment with the main gear for a flawless retrieve that won’t torque the reel with a fish on. Additionally, the TN12A features an ultralight cold-forged aluminum Magnumlite spool with Super Free that is perfect for pitching live baits or tossing iron. The TN12A puts out a buttery smooth 17# drag thanks to the proprietary Dartainium II woven carbon fiber drag system. You’ll love the TN12A’s High-Efficiency Gearing system, which utilizes smaller teeth for upgraded gear meshing resulting in a high speed 6.3:1 ratio perfect for jigging or bottom fishing techniques. The TN12A is perfect for intermediate bottom fish like blackfish, seabass, ling, snapper, and rockfish. You’ll also be able to use your TN12A for pitching baits at stripers and redfish as well as snook and speckles. Capacity wise, you’re looking at about 300 yards of 40# braid, which is more than enough to target larger inshore species. The Shimano Trinidad A TN12A Star Drag Reel is an amazing addition to a truly top-shelf line of reels, and it’s sure to become your go-to compact star drag reel.
