Brendon u need to define one thing first before a realistic answer can be given..are u going to use this as a swim reel or a casting reel? Lets assume u gonna swim live baits with this.....

Firstly for swim baiting the choice is simple..the TORIUM 50 is unbeatable..it has 2 extra drag washers vs the trini 30. It has a slower retrieve which means u can put more power on the fish, line capacity is phenomenal..(ask weeds how much line it can take!) so all in all you got one mean mother reel ready to target the 500kg great whites with the pulling power to match..

If u going for a casting reel then the choice goes to the trini 30..smaller spool is more controllable and casts better..

Hope all this helps..

Guys a Torium 30 and a Trinidad 30 are the same spool size!!!This is the Shimano part number.The Daiwa equivelent are the Saltiga50,Saltist50,Grandwave50,SL50SH.Now with this been rectified I would suggest a Trinidad for non-edibles and the Torium for edibles decide on your target species first before you buy any reel.I have a Daiwa SL50SH & SL30SH recently I bought the Torium30 & Torium20 and fell in love with them.

Forgive my ignorance, but are these not two reels with totally different applications?

I always taught that the Torium 50 is meant for swim baits and should be compared with a TN50?

Is the TN30 not more for casting for inedibles, and should be compared with the Torium 30, Saltiga 50 or Saltist 50?

Hi Weeds i'm looking to buy either a trinidad 50 or the torium 50.What is the difference between the two reels? Is it worth paying R1000 more for the trini?

brenden they are to totaly different reels you are comparing if you are looking for fishing deepwater points then ja a toruim 50 is the way to go but if you are looking to throw baits for smaller sharks then the trinidad is the way to go because it is alot better to cast a long way with

if you want a swimming reel buy the torium 50 , you can also throw it with a bit of practice, if you want a throwing reel the trini 30 ,, even the torium 30 is great reel,, the toruim 30 is a cheaper trini 30 and the torium 50 is a cheaper trini 50, if you got the bucks go for the trinis as they are bloody blinging mate lol, i got the toruim 30 and 50 and service them my self and am more than happy, it all depends on your budget, i would bother buying either 50 if you only planning on catching fish under 100kg

Hi ouens!

Ek oorweeg dit baie sterk om vir my 'n nuwe multiplier te koop. Ek is in twee gedagtes op hierdie stadium tussen die Saltist 50 en die Torium 30. Die prys verskil van die Saltist na die Torium is maar R570.00 maar ek is nogsteeds nie seker nie. Wat is die drag verskil tussen die twee? Sal ek "non-edibles" en edibles kan teiken met hulle?

Thanks

Daar het jy jou antwoord!

In my beskeie opinie is die Torium 30 die heel beste "all-rounder" wat jy kan koop, wat jou nie 'n plaas se geld gaan kos nie, en jy kan alles met hom vang.

As jy wil kan jy hom nog 'n bietjie "pimp" of opgradeer deur 'n paar klein goedjies te laat doen.

Dankie julle!

Dit het beslis gehelp! Ek het toe maar besluit op die Torium. Ek het ook 600m Birkley Whiplash en King Fisher Giant Abrasion 0.50mm laat opsit. Net vir ingeval daar dalk iets daar voor met groot tanne besluit om my bait halfpad Australiƫ toe te sleep.

Sal beslis vir julle die kiekies oplaai van die GROOT een!!!

Cheers vir eers!:thankie:ssswim:
