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.
Add the line of your choice to your order and we
will spool up your reel Left Hand Retrieve (unless specified in order notes
RHR) with the correct Dacron backing and include a leader. Let us know if you need
your reel changed to Right Hand Retrieve so we can do this in the shop.
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.
