The IR Series was designed as a small, lightweight series for lines from 2 - 7 weight. The series has a unique click drag system with five drag settings that are adjustable from the frame-side adjustment knob. This allows for precise drag control when using lightweight tippets. Like other Islander reels, this series has been engineered to last a lifetime.

Crafted with the same precision and attention to detail as other Islanders, the IR series has set the standard for clicker-style reels. The frames, feet, spools and other components are manufactured from 6000 series billet aluminum bar stock, using the latest in computer controlled machines. They are then buffed and carefully hand polished before being anodized. In order to maintain free movement, the spools are fitted with 2 self-lubricating (oilite) bushings. The series’ simple design also makes switching between left and right hand retrieve as easy as a quick flip of the pawls - no tools required. These reels are available in either a gold, green, silver, green, slate grey or black anodized finish, and come furnished with a Cocobolo wood handle. Large Arbor spools are also available for the IR3 and IR4, and a new "COMBO" option is available that includes both the regular and large arbor spools.
