Effortless cast, the perfect drift, bobber down. It’s what a centerpin float reel should offer and what the Islander Steelheader delivers—again and again and again. By machining to exacting tolerances, the IS centerpin reel is incredibly smooth and has virtually no start up inertia.
The bearing world is a lot like the automotive world. You could walk into a dealership and ask for a vehicle with 350 horse power and walk out with a sports car or a pick up—your criteria would be met either way, but your need might not be. Float reel bearings are no different. ABEC rating is important but the reason Islanders spin effortlessly is that we select only the finest quality bearings across all relevant categories like shield design, ball grade, lubrication, and material selection.
When that chrome missile decides to shoot down river directly at you, you’ll appreciate the Steelheader’s large arbor spool which gives you the pickup you need to keep up.
Right or left handed… It doesn’t matter. As a non-directional float reel, just spool it up the right way and you’re off to the river.
Perfect for retirement gifts, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events or just a personalized look, this add on ensures your reel will stand out. Leave a note during checkout or give us a call and we’ll provide you with more information.
The laser engraving process permanently etches the anodized finish without fully penetrating the coating to ensure the finish’s anti-corrosive properties are maintained. The process produces a white finish—we cannot engrave in colour.
