Shimano Trinidad 10a - UPGRADE EVA Knob Installation

Time for an upgrade...!!

I've blogged previously about the Shimano Trinidad 10a and the multiple uses of Shimano's smallest conventional overhead offering.  Without a doubt it's one of the best performing and capable pieces offered for any brand out there.

Shimano Trinidad 10a [X-ship Jigger] - Fall Gear 2011
Preparation is Key - Fluke Jigging On The Frances Fleet Summer 2011
Fluke On The Gail Frances - Frances Fleet Jigging Report 8.22.11

Being the standard offering for our North American market, the WHITE rubber SW knob doesn't capture the praise or favor from other anglers.  I really don't find any reason to dislike it, however over time it's come to be a bit slippery. 

Is it just me or is this knob a different composition then the black version offered on the larger SW Stella 2008?

Anyhow, I've decided it's time to upgrade to what Shimano America (Irvine) stocks as the Sustain FG stock knob. Yumeya offers the same profile (46mm) with an annodized black cap that has it's name on it.  The stock one I have as you can see is left plain.

ENJOY!

  1. Thanks for this info but....Can this same eva knob be used on a trini 20A or will it be too small? If so , maybe I can fit a bigger eva knob of the same type(sustain-fg)??? Thanks, Gerry from Oceanside , Ca

  2. Does that handle upgrade work for 12a and do you need to purchase the two bearings and gasket that come with that knob

  3. I dont know cuz I only used it for the 20A. In my case I did not need to buy bearing/gasket. It was only knob i bought. GOOD LUCK !!!
