Multi-layer Fluoropolymer and Stainless Steel Disk Drag

The heart of the Islander TR3 is its all new drag system made from an ultra-high performance fluoropolymer material known for its low coefficient of friction, durability and consistent performance across wide temperature ranges.

Disks are laser cut then sandwiched between alternating layers of stainless steel. The result is silky smooth performance, zero start-up inertia and more than enough power to stop the hardest fighting chinook. Simply put: it is the finest performing drag system on the market today.

Fully Sealed Drag System

The TR3 uses four O-rings to create an impenetrable barrier, preventing contaminants or corrosion from affecting drag performance. The sealed nature also means that the drag requires virtually no ongoing maintenance to continue performing at its best. Finally, the drag's minimum setting provides enough resistance to eliminate backlash while lowering gear on the downrigger.

Fully Ceramic Bearings

Forgot to clean your reel after a weekend on the water? You no longer need to worry. By using 100 percent ceramic bearings, the TR3 eliminates any possibility of corrosion ensuring that when you do remember to give your bearings a quick tune up they’ll be as good as new.

Ported Paddle Handles

Single action fishing is defined by your direct connection to the fish. Our all-new ported paddle handles bring that connection to a new level. By porting out the centre of each handle, your grip is much more secure, especially when fishing in wet or frigid conditions.

Interchangeable Retrieve

For all the lefties out there who are sick of fishing ‘backwards’ the TR3 has you covered. With a simple procedure, you can reel your reel your way.

Custom Laser Engraving

Perfect for retirement gifts, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events or just a personalized look, this add on ensures your reel will stand out. Leave a note during checkout or give us a call and we’ll provide you with more information.

The laser engraving process permanently etches the anodized finish without fully penetrating the coating to ensure the finish's anti-corrosive properties are maintained. The process produces a white finish—we cannot engrave in colour.
