Just wondering if this is a large arbor reel which is what most of us are looking for fishing in saltwater?

Hi Sully -
They are Direct Drive, Standard Arbor reels

I do have access to BRAND NEW Islander LA4W and LA4.5 reels and spools at incredible savings! E-mail me for prices

I would argue that Islanders are one of the top reels on the market today. Super high quality, great customer service, awesome looking, great "feel" to them, they sing like a dream and most importantly have a top rated CORK drag, draw-bar system just like the much more expensive Tibor and Billy Pate Reels costing upewards of $600!!!
