The Evolution of Islander is the Islander LX. In our 17-year history, the LX is the finest reel that we have ever developed. Every aspect of the LX has been refined until there is little room for improvement.
The level of engineering skill in the design and manufacture of the LX becomes apparent the moment you pick one up. It's so light! The largest LX tips the scales a shade under 14 ounces, and that's for a reel meant to pack a WF15 fly line!
Next you will notice the aesthetic appeal, both visual and tactile. From the gently contoured palming rim to its highly polished stainless steel drawbar and counterweight. Not only does it do its job exceedingly well; it looks good doing it! The super-smooth "stop-a-truck" drag is provided by Islander's proven Teflon and graphite-impregnated cork drag disc. By turning the silky smooth frame-side adjustment knob, you can modify the drag to a setting that most suits your style.
The LX is Islander's top of the line. There is no finer fly reel on the market today.
Clear reels are subject to availability and demand.

We are very proud of the quality and engineering excellence of our entire lineup. Because of our confidence in our products, we give all of our LX reels a Limited Lifetime Warranty to the original purchaser.
Every LX model of fly reel comes with a Dymondwood handle. Dymondwood is a dense, resin-stabilized hardwood that resists swelling and wear, while maintaining the beauty and feel of a natural hardwood.
To keep the reel stable during high-speed runs, every LX spool is both externally and internally counterweighted, which balances the mass of the handle assembly and the clicker assembly.
The frame-side drag adjustment knob is buttery smooth and infinitely adjustable.
