Nautilus FWX Reels and Spools Nautilus Fly Reel

Nautilus FWX Reels and Spools

The Nautilus FWX series reels are the lightest, most technologically advanced trout reels on the market today. FWX reels are almost a half ounce lighter than their FW predecessors due to a new spool design and internal changes. Like the NVG reels, the FWX sport Nautilus' Giga arbor spool design that promotes faster line pick up and backing drying. In addition to the advanced spool designs used in these reels, they have added a new stainless steel 1-way clutch that is housed in their proprietary TORQ-X clutch drive that ensures instant drag engagement with no slack. The retrieve direction can be easily switched from left hand to right hand and the spools are easily changed with the new push-on and click-off release. Finally, one of the newest creations to come out of the Nautilus think-tank is an industry first LaserID line identification. They have laser etched a white spot on the back of each FWX spool to write the line type and weight that you are using. Write with a permanent marker and wipe it off with alcohol when you change lines. Also good to use to write your name or phone number in case you lose it. No more washed out or lost line stickers. Fresh water light, salt water safe!
