The Shimano Trinidad A TN16A Star Drag Reel effectively blends two distinctively different approaches to fishing into one superstar reel. Unlike its narrow spooled brother the TN16NA, the standard sized Trinidad 16 is still compact enough to be incredibly effective in the jigging game, while having the line capacity for deepwater bottom fishing – whether you’re targeting offshore wrecks, oil rigs, reefs, or any structure that holds a plethora of tasty bottomfish. The TN16A’s cold forged aluminum spool will hold an impressive 500 yards of 50# braid – more than enough to target most grouper, snapper, cod, offshore blackfish, pollock, or tilefish. In the same trip, you can use your TN16A for serious vertical jigging for midsized nearshore and offshore fare like yellowtail, cobia, amberjack or king mackerel. Shimano’s patented X-Ship system guarantees that your TN16A won’t torque when extreme pressure is exerted on it during the fight by placing a ball bearing at either end of the pinion gear so that it stays in exact alignment with the main gear. Speaking on the main gear, it’s upgraded to be bigger in size with more, smaller teeth for improved meshing and ultra smooth retrieves. The cranking power on the Shimano Trinidad A TN16A Star Drag Reel is matched only by its brothers in the series, and a Dartainium II Woven Carbon Fiber drag system puts out 25# of silky smooth drag that won’t hesitate at any point during the fight.
