Smooth is the only way to describe the Islander Steelheader Centrepin float reel. Just grab the handle and spin the spool; you’d swear it was powered by batteries. No batteries, just precision machining, bearings and balance.
The Islander Steelheader, with its mirror like centre-pin screw to its flawless finish, performs as well as it looks.
- Dymondwood® Handles – Every IS centre-pin float reel comes with two Dymondwood® handles. Black Delrin® handles are available on request.
- Free-spool Button – This allows the user to completely disengage the reel clicker. The button affords free-spool operation for casting and a slight drag, when engaged, for those who use this feature. The clicker also prevents line from spooling off while travelling from one fishing location to the next.
- Bearings – The Steelheader runs on 2 ABEC 3 shielded stainless steel ball bearings. For an additional cost these can be substituted for ABEC 7 bearings upon request.
