The Islander ARMR2’s innovative design adds a clutch between the handle and the spool prevents the handle from spinning backwards thereby saving your knuckles. This feature is great for children, those making the transition to single action from levelwind, and those who prefer not to have their reflexes tested while enjoying time on the water.
Free Spool Lever
The ARMR2’s frame side free spool lever allows you to disengage the drag system to quickly drop your gear to the desired depth without the need to adjust your drag. Anglers who are particular about their drag settings appreciate the simplicity as it lets them get to depth with minimal hassle.
Silky Smooth Cork Drag
Over the last couple decades, Islander’s cork drags have 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.
