Nautilus X Frame Fly Reels and Spools
We have found the Nautilus X Frame Series reel to be a great fit for anglers that want a finely machined reel, super light weight, and good strength without having to spend over $500. The small is a great reel at $275 and is tough to beat. It truthfully doesn't have the truck stopping performance of the NVG or the CCFX2 but is a great reel and will perform flawlessly for 95% of anglers. For bonefish, trout, and other mid sized species this reel is an excellent choice.
The Nautilus X-Series is an open-frame reel designed for lightness, strength, drag smoothness, and fast line pick up. The X-Series design has strong beams that extend from the center to a wide line guard. These angles allow for rear spool rim protection where the reel typically contacts the ground when the rod is leaned up against a wall or a car.
The totally new SCF-X drag is a sealed Teflon® and carbon fiber disc drag system. It is adjusted with a generous drag knob that offers superior gripping surface and texture for wet and cold fingers.
DESIGNED FOR LIGHTNESS, STRENGTH, SMOOTHNESS & SPEED
The highly ventilated arch design, coupled with the dual palming rim increases spool strength by 35 %. The sides of the frame leave the spool totally exposed, and the back spool rim has a generous 1/8" secondary palming rim for added fish control. This heavy- duty secondary palming rim has the strength to withstand everyday wear and tear.
The spool is a new spin on our ultra light, award winning Giga arbor design. It is lighter than any spool of a similar size we have ever made.
Available in three frame sizes: XS - 3.25” Diameter, 3.8 oz, XM - 3.5” diameter, 4.1 oz, and a 4” frame XL that will accept the standard XL Giga arbor spool for a 6/7 weight and the XL MAX Giga arbor spool that will fit an 8/9 weight line. At a mere 4.7 ounces the XL and XL MAX will handle your larger fresh water species and light salt water needs perfectly.
Available in brushed titanium or black anodizing.
