Is the LL Bean Tidemaster 2 fly reel the same as an Islander FR2?

I own an LLB Tidemaster 2 and a number of spare spools. It's an excellent performing reel with a very reliable drag. I use it to casy 9 and 10 weight lines with an occasional 11 wt line. I also use an Islander AR2 (anti-reverse) - taken many a striper off the rips with the latter and a Loomis GLX 10wt rod. They have large cork drags which should be occasionaly cleaned and lubed with a good cork grease (Tibor carries it) or make your own with pure neatsfoot oil with a bit of added graphite powder.
