With a fully sealed disk drag, corrosion-free ceramic bearings, ported paddle handles, and matte finish, the Islander TR3 sets the standard in salmon trolling excellence.
Multi-layer Disk Drag
The heart of the Islander TR3 is its drag system made from an ultra-high performance drag material known for its low coefficient of friction, durability and consistent performance across wide temperature ranges.
Disks are laser cut then sandwiched between alternating layers of stainless steel. The result is silky smooth performance, zero start-up inertia and more than enough power to stop the hardest fighting chinook. Simply put: it is the finest performing drag system on the market today.
Fully Sealed Drag System
The TR3 uses four O-rings to create an impenetrable barrier, preventing contaminants or corrosion from affecting drag performance. The sealed nature also means that the drag requires virtually no ongoing maintenance to continue performing at its best. Finally, the drag’s minimum setting provides enough resistance to eliminate backlash while lowering gear on the downrigger.
Fully Ceramic Bearings
Forgot to clean your reel after a weekend on the water? You no longer need to worry. By using 100 percent ceramic bearings, the TR3 eliminates any possibility of corrosion ensuring that when you do remember to give your bearings a quick tune up they’ll be as good as new.
Ported Paddle Handles
Single action fishing is defined by your direct connection to the fish. Our ported paddle handles bring that connection to a new level. By porting out the centre of each handle, your grip is much more secure, especially when fishing in wet or frigid conditions.
For all the lefties out there who are sick of fishing ‘backwards’ the TR3 has you covered. With a simple procedure, you can reel your reel your way.
