Shimano 2010 reel releases: new Trinidad and more Talica II sizes

Shimano Trinidad A Series Reels
When the original Trinidad Reels were introduced over a decade ago, they were hailed as a revolution. Other than the obvious transition from gold to the sleeker silver/gunsmoke color scheme, the new Trinidad A reels feature updated gearing and drags that are found in later model reels. Also noteworthy is the addition of a 10A model Trini. Sizes introduced: 10A, 12A, 14A, 16NA, 16A, 20A and 30A.

New Shimano Talica II Reel Models
Shimano has expanded their Talica 2-Speed offerings with the addition of the 20II and 25II reels. These reels are great for trolling or casting applications. The Talica 20II and 25II are topless and feature harness lugs.

Shimano Thunnus CI4 Spinning Reels
Like the Trinidad, the original Thunnus spinners were introduced about a decade ago as a higher end version of the popular Baitrunner series. The CI4 series boasts many of the features found in higher price point reels such as the Stella SW and Spheros FE reels.

Pretty sexy. I love my Trinidad 30 had it for years and it still doesn't miss a beat but it could be getting close to update time, mine has the star drag like the idea of the lever drag.
