Quite possibly the finest example of a clicker-pawl fly reel on the market today, the IR, Islander Ratchet, has been growing in popularity amongst the trout crowd. The simple yet smooth clicker-pawl drag has five pre-set drag pressures to help slow down even the most precocious prey. The drag is silky for both the outgoing and incoming click, and doesn't suffer the hand-numbing rattle that some clicker-pawl reels are plagued with.
Dymondwood® Handles - Dymondwood® is a dense, resin-stabilized hardwood that resists swelling and wear, while maintaining the beauty and feel of a natural hardwood.
Quick-Release System - Quick and easy spool changes with Islander's proven quick release system.
Conter-Balanced Spools - To keep the reel stable during high-speed runs, every spool has a stainless steel counterweight, to balance the handle assembly.
Drag Adjustment - Five adjustment knob settings to vary the click-pawl drag pressure.
Right or Left Hand - Easy conversion between right and left hand retrieve without tools.
Combination Packages - The IR3 and IR4 can be purchased with an additional Large Arbor spool in a Combination Package at a combination price
