TR3 Maintenance Manual (585 KB)

Designed, machined and hand assembled in Canada

Fishing in the Pacific Northwest will never be the same. With a fully sealed disk drag, corrosion-free ceramic bearings, ported paddle handles, and two-tone finish, the TR3 sets a new standard in salmon trolling excellence.


Multi-layer Fluoropolymer and Stainless Steel Disk Drag
The heart of the TR3 is its all new drag system made from an ultra-high performance fluoropolymer material known for its low coefficient of friction, durability and consistent performance across wide temperature ranges.
Disks are laser cut then sandwiched between alternating layers of stainless steel. The result is silky smooth performance, zero start-up inertia and more than enough power to stop the hardest fighting chinook. Simply put: it is the finest performing drag system on the market today.

Fully Sealed Drag System
The TR3 uses four O-rings to create an impenetrable barrier, preventing contaminants or corrosion from affecting drag performance. The sealed nature also means that the drag requires virtually no ongoing maintenance to continue performing at its best.

Fully Ceramic Bearings
Forgot to clean your reel after a weekend on the water? You no longer need to worry. By using 100 percent ceramic bearings, the TR3 eliminates any possibility of corrosion ensuring that when you do remember to give your bearings a quick tune up they’ll be as good as new.

Ported Paddle Handles
Single action fishing is defined by your direct connection to the fish. Our all-new ported paddle handles bring that connection to a new level. By porting out the centre of each handle, your grip is much more secure, especially when fishing in wet or frigid conditions.


  • Fully-Sealed Disk Drag – All-new fluoropolymer and stainless steel disk drag takes performance to a new level
  • Fully Ceramic Bearings – Corrosion proof ceramics for increased durability
  • Ported Paddle Handles – Hollowed out handle cavity for superior grip
  • Changeable Retrieval direction – Good for right or left handed anglers
  • Machined Out of Aerospace Grade Aluminum – Every Islander reel starts as a solid puck of aluminum before CNC machines turn it into a finished product.
  • Hand-Polished Mirror Finish – We spare no detail in crafting the finest reels which is why each reel is buffed by hand to eliminate machine lines and other imperfections.
  • Lifetime Warranty – The TR3 is built to withstand the test of time so we stand behind it for its lifetime
  • Made in Canada – Proudly designed, machined, built and tested on Vancouver Island
