Nautilus Fly Reels

 

Nautilus X Fly Reels

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.

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, XM – 3.5” diameter, 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. While only weighing a mere 4.7 ounces the XL and XL MAX will handle your larger fresh water species and light salt water needs perfectly.

Features:

  • Designed for lightness, strength and smoothness
  • High retrieve speed
  • Fully sealed Teflon® and carbon fiber disc drag system
  • Large drag knob with easy-grip textured surface
  • Secondary palming rim for added fish control
  • Easily converted from left- to right-hand wind
  • Made in the USA

Nautilus CCF-X2 Fly Reels

The newest addition to the Nautilus family is the CCF-X2. The CCF-X2 Disc Braking System is an upgraded, stronger, lighter version of the Cork and Carbon Fiber brake of its predecessor. It features twice the drag surface in a dual-action brake configuration. Coupled with hybrid ceramic bearings, the reel delivers less than 1% startup inertia at all drag settings. This brake unit is feather light and can be easily switched from RH to LH retrieve. The Brembo® brakes of fly fishing.

All CCF-X2 reels feature the fish-fighting big game handle and are fully sealed using our proprietary Activseal technology. The Nautilus ActivSeal™ is a precision machined proprietary seal that’s featured in all our CCF-X2 and NV series reels. The ActivSeal actively repels water, sand, salt and any other contaminant to keep the braking system intact and consistent. Whether great lakes steelheading in 20-degree weather or on a Seychelles flat in 100-degree tropical torture, ActivSeal technology keeps your reel functioning at the highest level, despite the elements. Dunk it and batter it with sand, then go back to fishing. Other components included in the CCF-X2 line are hybrid ceramic bearings, TPX bushings and an oversized drag knob to adjust the smoothest drag from zero to max in 6 full turns with our Infinajust system.

The 6/8 is a 4-inch large arbor 6-8 weight reel. For more line pick up, the 8/10 is a great 8 weight with almost 12 inches of line pick up with a WF8 line per turn of the handle. The 4.5-inch 8/10 and 10/12 reels share the same frame and the spools can be interchanged for a set up that covers 8 to 12 weight lines with just an extra spool.

The Silver King is the latest addition to the CCF-X2 line and is the world’s lightest 5-inch diameter true big game reel on the market. This dominator of all things silver picks up 14-inches of line per turn of the handle and will reel in your prize like none other.

In addition, this reel is fully sealed and loaded with hybrid ceramic bearings, TPX bushings and an oversized drag knob with Infinadjust range settings.

Features:

  • Retrieve up to 14" of line per handle revolution
  • Hybrid ceramic bearings
  • Ultra-smooth, fully sealed cork and carbon fibre drag system
  • Oversized drag knob with Infinadjust range settings
  • Easily converted from left- to right-hand wind
  • Built to conquer the toughest saltwater game fish
  • Made in the USA

Nautilus NV-G Fly Reels

Nothing compares. Drag, design and performance make the NV-G the ultimate fly reel.

The NV-G series are built on the tried, tested and trusted NV 5/6 through NV Monster frames, and they feature the patented and award-winning NV CCF Disc Braking System.

The G-Spool design transforms your NV reels into uber-arbor fly reels that pick up line faster than any other comparable reel in the market. The G-Spool (Giga Spool) design reduces the reel weight significantly and generates less line coiling and much faster line retrieval (up to 15 inches per turn on the G-10!).

NV-G reels feature the Nautilus ActivSeal, a precision machined proprietary seal system. The ActivSeal actively repels water, sand, salt and any other contaminant to keep the braking system intact and consistent. Whether great lakes steelheading in 20-degree weather or on a Seychelles flat in 100-degree tropical torture, ActivSeal technology keeps your reel functioning at the highest level, despite the elements. Dunk it and batter it with sand, then go back to fishing.

First introduced in 2006, the NV CCF is a stronger, lighter version of the CCF brake. It sports a larger drag, hybrid ceramic bearings, and a titanium drag shaft while delivering the same less than 1% startup inertia as the CCF disc brake. Even at twice the drag surface, this brake unit weighs almost half of that in the CCF line of reels, allowing the NV line to deliver true big game reels that weigh less than many trout reels. The Brembo® brakes of fly fishing reels.

The unique CNC machining on these reels gives the impression that the backing is floating above the arbor, creating significant air space under the backing, which promotes faster backing drying. Wet backing is the leading cause of corrosion in fly reels, and the G-Spool design dries 14 times faster than traditional designs.

Features:

  • The ultimate fly reel
  • Award-winning NV CCF Disc Braking System
  • Backing dries 14 times faster than traditional designs
  • Ultra-smooth, fully sealed drag system
  • Picks up line faster than any comparable reel in the market
  • Made in the USA
