Over the last couple decades, the Islander MR3’s cork drag has probably caught more salmon than any other system off the coast of British Columbia…And for good reason. The properties of our drag ensure that when even the biggest chinook goes for a run, you have enough stopping power to slow it down and enough smoothness to apply consistent fish fighting pressure.
The MR3’s spool features a large arbor which increases your retrieval rate so that when that torpedo makes a run at the boat you’ve got the pick up to stay on it. The design also eliminates the need for backing while still providing you with enough capacity for the longest of runs.
For all the lefties out there who are sick of fishing ‘backwards’ the MR3 is your reel. With a simple procedure, you can reel your reel your way.
