Nautilus GTX Reel, The GTX is a 5 inch diameter fly fishing reel with a 1.1 inch wide spool that can hold up to 500 yards of 60 lb braid. That's a lot in a narrow frame. You will also be amazed at how light the spool is, especially in a reel that is designed to turn a fish that is as big as you are. As you’ve come to expect from a Nautilus, the reel is intricately machined with their Giga Spool Design to ensure strength, optimal line pickup, and corrosion resistance.
This new dual drag system has an oversized carbon fiber disc on one side and a cork/Kevlar/carbon hybrid disc on the other. This creates quite the hybrid of stopping power materials. The cork acts as cork does in other drag systems: largely as a compression material to ensure a smooth transition from fish off to fish on! Carbon fiber gives you that Nautilus smoothness, and the new Kevlar mid layer adds a lot of rigidity to the drag surface, which not only spreads the friction out evenly but also dampens vibrations and reduces heat. So, this system is more effective and also keeps itself in check. In other words it will last longer than any previous big-game drag systems.
If you are chasing the strongest, fastest fish in the salt, look no further than this reel. With quality comes price but I guarantee that when you are hooked up to a behemoth you want to count on every aspect of the reel you’re using, and you can relax knowing you’re in the hands of the Nautilus GTX Reel.
