NAUTILUS® X-SERIES

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.

The X series of reels has found its place in our line-up as one of the best bang-for-your-buck reels, but that doesn't mean it lacks high end quality. In the XM 4/5 Weight size, this reel is a US made saltwater reel in a Trout sized package. The larger XL 6/7 weight and XL Max 8/9 weight sizes are ultralight workhorses for everything from Bass and Striper to Snook and Redfish. Free backing and rigging on all fly reel purchases. If you would like to add a fly line, include it in your purchase!
