Islander MR3 - Salmon Mooching Reel

The Islander MR3 is the latest entry into the premier salmon mooching reel field. It is result of years of research and development based upon the input of dealers, guides, and pro-staff. Single action reels have long been the choice of most experienced guides and premier lodges on the west cost of British Columbia. Throughout its history, Islander has gained a reputation for longevity and reliability across the fishing community.

Continuing in the Islander tradition of the single action reel, the MR3 salmon mooching reel utilizes Islander's impressive silky smooth drag system. Drag is supplied by a large 3-inch clutch, which uses a double pawl system for positive clutch lock up. The drag is adjusted from the spool side, hence the nickname Knuckle-buster, which happens if the angler is not quick enough moving their hand when the fish makes a run for freedom.

The large sculptured drag knob makes for comfortable use under all conditions. A wide range of drag adjustment allows the angler to choose just the right amount of pressure to subdue even the most ambitious finned adversary. Incorporated into the reel are three large, fully sealed stainless steel ball bearings. The Islander MR3 salmon mooching reel incorporates a large arbor spool for quicker line pickup; this also eliminates the need for the use of backing as filler. Oversized handles are very user friendly and there also flat, paddle style handles available as an option.

Oversized Delrin Handles
Every MR3 mooching reel comes with two oversized contoured Delrin handles. Delrin is a light, wear-resistant engineering plastic that does not absorb water and can withstand almost any environment.
Sculpted Dragknob
The spool-side sculpted dragknob is buttery smooth and infinitely adjustable.
Right Or Left Hand
The MR3 is easily converted to either left or right-hand retrieve.
No Free-spool
There is no free-spool lever on the MR3.
No Anti-Reverse Option
There is no anti-reverse option available for the MR3.
