description: In August, 2012, Joe announced a new high-end saltwater reel called the Islamorada. In three sizes to match up with the very popular bonefish, permit, and tarpon, each would of course serve many other purposes including some in freshwater. The drag is actuated by a lever and has strong detents in each position. The drag itself features three carbon fibre discs bearing against heavily anodized aluminum washers. It has a very strong maximum drag and is designed and lubricated with the intent that it will eventually get wet. Even though it's an open drag design, this should eliminate any hydroplaning. The bearings used are massive compared to those used in most fly reels. That's one of the reasons for the slightly higher weights than many of the other new reels on the market. These reels are intended to be serious gear that will stand up to the rigors that saltwater fishing often provides. They are available in black, gold, silver, or any combination (frame/spool) of those colors. All parts are made by Saracione Mfg. in their shop in Oregon. Nothing is made overseas. Joe even does his own anodizing. WF8F & 225yds of 20# Backing Thanks! R.D. Sorensen Rick@westslopefly.com 559-907-7933
