MR2 LA Mooching Reel
Large Arbor, Disk Drag
The MR2LA is the newest edition to the Islander line-up. This single action, direct drive reel is based on the trusted MR2 design. The MR2LA is a compact large arbor mooching reel that is tough enough to last a lifetime.
The MR2LA brings together all the loved features of the MR2 and MR3. It relies upon the framework of the MR2 and its free-spool capabilities but it also incorporates a large arbor like the MR3. With this large arbor, comes the space for a larger sculpted drag knob allowing for easier drag adjustment.
Like all of Islander’s mooching reels, the MR2LA is built for harsh saltwater conditions. From its fully anodized frame, spool and smaller components to the hefty brass clutch, all of the components are machined from materials that will last in a saltwater environment. We’re not kidding when we say this reel is built to endure the elements.
Spool and Drag
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 – The free-spool lever allows the user to completely disengage the drag.
- Delrin® Handles – Every MR2LA comes with two contoured Delrin® handles. Delrin® is a light, wear-resistant engineering plastic that can withstand almost any environment.
- Sculpted Dragknob – The spool-side sculpted dragknob is 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.
