Nautilus FWX Fly Reel

Nautilus FWX Fly Reel at Front Range Anglers

The FWX series replaces the FW series that has successfully satisfied fly fishers for the last 5 years. The FWX reels differ from the FW series in that they are almost a half ounce lighter due to their new spool design, making them the lightest machined aluminum disc drag fly reels in the market. Like the NVG reels, the FWX has a Giga arbor design that promotes faster line pick up and backing drying. In addition to the advanced spool designs used in these reels, we have added a new stainless steel 1-way clutch that is housed in our proprietary TORQ-X™ clutch drive that ensures instant drag engagement with no slack, allowing the retrieve direction to be easily switched, and we have converted the new reels to be push on and click tab release.

Finally, one of our newest creations to come out of the Nautilus think-tank is an industry first LaserID™ line identification system: We have laser etched a white spot on the back of each FWX spool so that you may write the line type and weight that you are using on that spool. Write it on with a permanent marker and wipe it off with alcohol when changing lines. Also good to use to write your name or phone number in case you lose the reel. No more washed out or lost line stickers!
To come close to this quality of workmanship and performance you will likely have to spend twice as much as what these reels cost. Fresh Water Light, Salt Water Safe!

Available in 4 models: FW 1, FWX 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8, and they are compatible with the older FW reels.

FRA's Review of the Nautilus FWX Fly Reel
"Sometimes they just get it right.  Nautilus nailed it with the FWX.  They re-engineered the drag system, it is a fully sealed Carbon Fiber Drag that will never need any maintenance even when fishing in the sand, snow, or gravel.  Then they machined a aluminum housing that is ultralight without compromising the structural integrity of the reel.  For the money this is a great choice for Trout, Carp, Bones, and beyond."  ~FRA
