Lightly used. Spooled with 80lb Powerpro.
Holy cannoli that’s a clean reel
$1k? Good luck with that!
That's the going rate, doubt it will last long before someone snags it up.
Going rate ? Who has bought them for $1000 bucks ?
Crazy I know, but they aren't usually this clean and with a bunch of boat rash go for $800
Wow... that’s reel is nice. I want one have been waiting for one to come up but I can’t get myself to pull the trigger on that price. Someone will buy it...
What makes this reel special?
Somebody buy this and put it on that $1000 Sabre 540.
Trade for like new Trinidad 16A and $500?
Dude knows what he's got.
i got me like 5 of these in size 30. they are nice
I’m thinking the same exact thing. What makes this reel more than $800 better than a new Saltist or a Fathom? Just curious.
Casting Ability. I don’t know the exact reason why but they are virtually backlash proof if you have it adjusted correctly.
Learn how to cast
And a penn torque 25N would be better
It’s for people without thumbs. I think it has a back up for the AR bearing also. Nice reels. If I had a grand laying around I’d be tempted. Glws
It has a dog with a spring so there's a slight clicking sound. The price is mostly due to it being collectible since Shimano doesn't make DC versions of the current Trinidads.
More than a collectible and more than a spring on the dog. By the way you can add the same spring to any gold Trinidad 16/20/30, easy upgrade and solves the “floating pawl” issue. The Digital Control (yes small computer) that gets charged on this cast for the next cast (odd turbo sound the reel makes) controls the speed the spool spins. You do not achieve greater distance but you can throw harder knowing your chances of a backlash are much reduced. It is really hard to explain how it works but it does. I have had one since they first arrived on the market. It is filled with 65# spectra with room for about 125 yards of 40# mono. I fish it on a custom wrapped Shimano Teramar 100 XH (10’). It is a rare day that anyone on the boat is achieving more distance or greater accuracy. They are special if you are a surface iron guy.
$1,000 price......that is a tough one, some people drive Chevys other people drive BMWs.
