Spool and Drag-The IS is certainly designed with elegance and functionality in mind. The spool has a large arbour for quick retrieval and a large, smooth palming rim allowing for everything down to the lightest touch of drag. Precision machining and perfect balance allow the spool to spin effortlessly, but the simple click drag system can be engaged with the free-spool button on the frame to keep line under control.
DYMONDWOOD HANDLES-Every IS centre-pin float reel comes with two Dymondwood® handles. Black Delrin® handles are available on request.
FREE-SPOOL BUTTON-This allows the user to completely disengage the reel clicker. The button affords free-spool operation for casting and a slight drag, when engaged, for those who use this feature. The clicker also prevents line from spooling off while travelling from one fishing location to the next.
BEARINGS-The Steelheader runs on 2 ABEC 3 shielded stainless steel ball bearings. For an additional cost these can be substituted for ABEC 7 bearings upon request.
