ISLANDER Steelheader Centerpin Float Reel




The purchase of any Islander Reel includes a complimentary 150 yards of Scientific Anglers dacron backing. (We spool all reels for left hand retrieve, unless otherwise stated. If you are right hand retrieve, please let us know under “order comments” upon checkout).

Large Arbor, Click-Drag

Smooth is the only way to describe the Islander Steelheader Centerpin Float Reel. Just grab the handle and spin the spool; you’d swear it was powered by batteries. No batteries, just precision machining, bearings and balance. The Islander Steelheader, with its mirror like centerpin screw to its flawless finish, performs as well as it looks.

Spool and Drag

The IS is certainly designed with elegance and functionality in mind. The spool has a large arbor 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.


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 traveling from one fishing location to the next.

Bearings – The Steelheader runs on 2 ABEC 3 shielded stainless steel ball bearings.
