Islander TR3 – All New Reel, Same Great Sound
Your rod pounds on the Scotty. You jump up, set the hook and suddenly the line is peeling and that old familiar song rings out—only this time it’s a new reel doing the singing. The TR3 is here. With a fully sealed disk drag, corrosion-free ceramic bearings, ported paddle handles, and two-tone finish, the Islander TR3 sets a new standard in salmon trolling excellence.
Multi-layer Fluoropolymer And Stainless Steel Disk Drag
The heart of the TR3 is its all new drag system made from an ultra-high performance fluoropolymer 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.
- All-new stacked disk design
- Ultra-high performance fluoropolymer
- Smooth and consistent performance
- Zero start-up inertia for smooth runs
- Shark-stopping power
Fully Sealed Drag System
Not all “sealed drags” are created equal. Many fly reel manufacturers claim a seal then rely on contact or a single-shielded design. This may work on rivers or flats but on the big water of the Pacific Northwest the standards are higher. That’s why 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.
- Four O-rings create 100% sealed system
- Contamination and corrosion are eliminated from the drag
- Virtually maintenance-free performance
Fully Ceramic Bearings
Forgot to clean your reel after a weekend on the water? You no longer have to worry. By using 100 percent ceramic bearings, the TR3 eliminates any possibility of corrosion for smooth performance with minimal maintenance.
- 100% ceramic bearings eliminate corrosion
- Minimal maintenance required
Ported Paddle Handles
Single action fishing is defined by your direct connection to the fish. Our all-new 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.
- Improved feel while fighting fish
- More secure grip in wet or frigid conditions
- Exposed matching red handle bases
