I got this reel new in box seems to spin really slow. loosened bearing cap on right still seems slow. I heard Shimano over packs the reel with grease?
Help any ideas

Bearings are greased by bearing manufacturers not Shimano and yes sometimes they have a little too much grease. The trini's and tori's have the same spool bearing set up, with very light spools. Does your reel have line on it? If it doesn't add some this usually helps get the grease out of the bearing race track and the weight of the line should get that spool moving.
