Nautilus GTX - Coming Soon


We continue to pursue bigger, faster and tougher fish species so likewise we need to pursue tougher equipment to tame the giants. Nautilus Fly Reels are well proven to conquer the task and well known to push the limits of fly reel design. New for 2018, Nautilus GTX!

New for 2018, the GTX from Nautilus Reels is in a class of its own. Designed to be fished beyond IGFA regulations, this reel is equipped to go head-to-head with your terminal tackle and with a maximum drag of 25 pounds, the GTX is built to put the brakes on the fastest and strongest fish on the planet.

The GTX is a 5-inch diameter reel with a narrow 1.1 inch wide spool that can hold 500 yards of 60 pound braid. The spool is lightweight and intricately machined with our Giga spool design to promote strength, maximum line pickup, and fast line drying to prevent corrosion when stored. 

The GTX brake is a brand new design that is best described as a hybrid NV-G / CCF-X2 / X-Series drag on steroids. It features a new pressure spring that is sandwiched between two aluminum disc that rotate in unison, Which applies even pressure to the drag surfaces. 

The new dual drag surface features an over-sized carbon fiber disc on one side and a cork/Kevlar/carbon fiber hybrid on the other. The cork acts as a compression material to ensure a smooth drag transition while the carbon fiber delivers the market-leading overall smoothness that nautilus reels are known for. The new Kevlar mid layer provides additional rigidity to the drag surface and spreads the pressure more evenly across the surface, insulating and heat generated by friction and dampening vibrations for the smoothest perceived drag on the market
