IS Maintenance Manual (675 KB)

Designed, machined and hand assembled in Canada


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.


  • Bearings - The Steelheader runs on 2 ABEC 3 shielded stainless steel ball bearings.
  • Click Drag - If desired, it provides a slight drag when engaged. The clicker also prevents line from spooling off between uses.
  • Free-spool Button - Completely disengages the clicker for free-spool operation and casting.
