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 to 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.
Available in three frame sizes: XS - 3.25” Diameter, 3.8 oz, XM - 3.5” diameter, 4.3 oz, 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. At a mere 4.7 ounces, the XL and XL MAX will handle your larger freshwater species and light saltwater needs perfectly.
