The LX is Islander’s top of the line fly reel. Everything about the LX impresses, from the fine machining to the lustrous finish. The reels are very light without sacrificing durability. A Teflon and graphite disc drag with a large smooth adjustment knob will stop any fish you catch and can be set to any strength you desire. The fact that the LX is made in BC is just a bonus feature of this lovely addition to any rod.
