Nautilus NV Fly Spools
Product description: Nautilus NV fly reels are available in five sizes and 10 configurations, and are unparalleled in weight, good looks and performance. The Nautilus NV 5/6, 6/7, 8/9, 10/11 and 11/12 and their G-Spool siblings are completely impervious to the elements and will outperform any fighting class reel on the market.
The Nautilus NV series feature a larger version of the CCF drag system compared to their Nautilus CCF siblings, and stainless steel components have largely been replaced by ceramics and titanium. The only aspect in which the reel is exceeded in performance is by its slender looks and subtle beauty. Machined entirely out of aircraft grade Aluminum, no details have been omitted: from its low profile drag knob and counterweight to the 100 and 200 yard backing markers on the inside of the spool. These reels will impress you.
All NV reels feature titanium drag shafts, and are loaded with the latest technology in high performance ceramic micro bearings. Since ceramics and titanium are impervious to the elements, you are guaranteed to spend less time worrying and more time fishing. NV reels feature a “thrust bearing to thrust bearing” drag design for effortless cranking resistance under any load, ensuring the smoothest line retrieval of any reel on the market. Using titanium and ceramics has allowed us to downsize components, increase the drag surface by over 75%, and still decrease the overall weight without sacrificing the fighting class qualities that are the hallmark of our products.
The Nautilus NV fly reel series are the lightest reels in their class, and offer the greatest value in any big game fly reel available in the market today. A reel of a lifetime for a lifetime of fish. They are without a doubt, the best reels money can buy.
The G-Spool design transforms your NV reels into uber-arbor fly reels that pick up line faster than any other comparable reel in the market. The G-Spool (Giga Spool) design reduces the reel weight significantly and generates less line coiling and much faster line retrieval (up to 15 inches per turn on the G-10!).
The unique CNC machining on these reels gives the impression that the backing is floating above the arbor, creating significant air space under the backing, which promotes faster backing drying. Wet backing is the leading cause of corrosion in fly reels, and the G-Spool design dries 14 times faster than traditional designs.The Nautilus NV Spey reels have been designed to maximize the effectiveness of thin running lines, and we feature the popular Giga arbor design for lightning fast line pick up and minimal line memory – critical components of distance casting.
These spools have been named to reflect the recommended range of grain weights for line heads, starting at the lowest recommended to the biggest line that will comfortably fit with at least 150 yards of 30 lb. backing.
The NV Spey 400-550 will fit your existing NV 10/11 frame and the NV Spey 450-750 fits the NV 11/12 frame.
Reels are available in black or brushed silver anodizing unless ordered in a custom color.
