The ARMR2 is the anti-reverse model of the popular MR2 and incorporates many of the same features. When the fish makes a run, the handles stand still.
This model of mooching reel is popular among inexperienced anglers and professionals who rely on the use of their hands for a living.
Because of the freespool design of the ARMR2, it cannot be configured for left hand retrieve.
Because of ductile nature of monofilament, Islander recomends filling two-thirds of the spool with #50 dacron backing, and then filling the last third of the spool with monofilament.
|Capacity||350 yards 20lbs monofilament + backing|
Islander offers a limited 2 year warranty against manufacturer defects.
Unique to the MR2 and ARMR2, the free-spool lever allows the user to completely disengage the drag.
Every ARMR2 mooching reel comes with two contoured Delrin handles. Delrin is a light, wear-resistant engineering plastic that does not absorb water and can withstand almost any environment.
The spool-side drag adjustment knob is buttery smooth and infinitely adjustable.
