Nautilus GTX



NAUTILUS GTX

The GTX from Nautilus Reels is in a class of its own. Designed to be fished beyond IGFA regulations, this reel is equipped to go head-to-head with your terminal tackle, and with a maximum drag of 25+ pounds, the GTX is built to put the brakes on the fastest and strongest fish on the planet.

The GTX is a 5-inch diameter reel with a narrow 1.1-inch wide spool that holds 500 yards of 60-pound braid. The spool is lightweight and intricately machined with our Giga spool design to promote strength, maximum line pickup, and fast line drying to prevent corrosion when stored.

The GTX Pentadrag braking system is a brand new design that is best described as a hybrid NV-G/CCF-X2/X-Series drag on steroids. The new Pentadrag features 3 cork and carbon fiber surfaces and two free floating carbon fiber surfaces that are topped with a Kevlar®/carbon fiber hybrid precision plate that ensures even pressure at all points of the drag surfaces. The cork acts as an insulation and compression material to ensure a smooth drag transition while the carbon fiber delivers the market-leading overall smoothness that Nautilus Reels is known for.

To control the drag tension, Nautilus designed the all new GripTorq drag knob. Intricately machined on 4 axes to promote light weight, strength and more grip than on any other drag knob in the industry. The GTX GripTorq drag knob measures 1.9” in diameter.

The Nautilus Reels GTX delivers 9.2 ounces of optimized fighting power at an MSRP of $1300.00 for the reel and $575.00 for the spool. Available in matte black or brushed titanium anodizing.

Giga: The Uber arbors of fly fishing reels. Reel in more than a foot per turn of the handle. A unique design feature of these spools is grooves that let the bottom of the backing breathe to promote faster drying. The giga arbors have redefined large arbor reel design.
Perpetually repels contaminants from braking system.
