a damaged ambassaduer style dog is a sign of one of two things.  either the anti-reverse roller bearing is slipping or the drag is sticking, or both.  both of these problems appear as the reel ages.

Replaced the drags with carbontex when I changed the pawl, reel has been working fine.

I used a friends older Trinidad 40 on a 7ft rod with 65ish braid for big muttons and grouper and I really like the compact and easy feel of that setup.  I could easily use it for jigging tuna or other pelagics also.  It could also be trolled.  Doing alot of reading and seems I want to match em up with some aqua blue Terez rods to match the boat(yes shimano marketting works).  Any opinions on what if any is a better reel to fish 65-80 lb braid for what I'm trying to do?  I have plenty of trolling outfits and 2 Saragosas for jigging so this is more of a bottom setup first.

Interesting that Shimano has put the eared type dogs on the new Trinidad A. Yes, I know it has 2 of them, but I think I would rather the single sprung dog system on the DC.

shimano's market surveys probably indicated that THIS was what the public wanted, regardless of the risks.

My take on it is that reel manufacturers want a silent anti-reverse first.. at almost any cost.

I have a really good idea that would make it completely silent yet strong like a spring loaded dog.. starting to think I should get a patent on it..  Grin

i never looked into the taller AR bearing and sleeve any further.  the spring loaded dog basically took care of the problem.  alan

Did you ever look into this since then?  Can it be done?  Thanks

the trinidad DC dog and spring drop right in without the washer.  for the second dog, the spring has to be bent out quite a ways.  and the base needs to be ground down a little for the spring to lay flush.  when i get this last batch of reels done, i will do a post on this.  alan

it's the trinidad dc spring.  the pawl is the orginal one from the plain trinidad or torium reels with the leaf springs removed.  they are thinner.  that's why the washer was needed.
