MR2LA Maintenance Manual (408 KB)

Designed, machined and hand assembled in Canada


The MR2LA boasts a large arbor spool. The large arbor design allows for quick line pickup and eliminates the need to use backing as filler. On the inside of the reel the spool runs on three fully sealed, stainless steel ball bearings.

The MR2LA also features a frame-side free spool lever that places the spool into a drag-less mode, allowing for quick drops to a desired depth. The drag is adjusted through the sculpted spool side drag knob, and offers a wide range of drag pressures.


  • Free-spool/Drag Lever - Allows the user to completely disengage the drag.
  • Delrin® Handles - Two contoured Delrin® handles. Delrin® is a light and durable engineering plastic.
  • Sculpted Dragknob - Easily accessible and buttery smooth for infinite adjustments.
  • Right Hand Only - Because of the free-spool design, the MR2LA cannot be configured for left hand retrieve.

For a period of two years after the date of purchase, Islander Reels warrants this reel against any failure due to defects in materials and workmanship. This warranty is valid only if the reel has been cleaned and maintained according to the Maintenance Instructions. This warranty applies to the original purchaser only. This warranty does not cover normal wear, misuse, or loss. Nor does this warranty cover damage due to: improper use or improper assembly, improper/inadequate cleaning or improper/inadequate maintenance.

Cautionary Note: It is recommended that mono-filament line be removed from the line cavity of the spool every once in a while to relax the line and remove pressure from the spool walls.
