Islander Steelheader Reels

Pin It


Smooth is the only way to describe the Islander Steelheader Centerpin 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 center-pin screw to its flawless finish, performs as well as it looks

The IS is certainly designed with elegance and functionality in mind. The spool has a large arbour for quick retrieval and a large, smooth palming rim allowing for everything down to the lightest touch of drag. Precision machining and perfect balance allow the spool to spin effortlessly, but the simple click drag system can be engaged with the free-spool button on the frame to keep line under control.
