The FWX is one of the most fantastic trout reels we have played with. Whether you are fishing saltwater, freshwater, or something in between the FWX has you covered with a completely sealed drag, light weight, and versitility. The Feather-Weight-Extreme, as Nautilus calls it, is an awesome reel with very low maintainance, that will carry you through many fishing seasons to come.
Reel is available in either Black or Silver.
The Nautilus FWX (Feather Weight Xtreme) series is the most technologically advanced and the lightest machined aluminum disc drag trout fly reel on the market.
The award-winning FWX reels feature our Sealed Carbon Fiber (SCFTM) drag system with the proprietary TORQ-XTM clutch drive and TPX bushings. This completely sealed, maintenance-free draw bar type carbon fiber disc brake delivers the smoothest drag on the market in a light fly reel. No sand, gravel, water or snow will affect the flawless performance of this amazing disc drag.
Like the NVG reels, the FWX sport our Giga arbor spool 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-XTM clutch drive that ensures instant drag engagement with no slack. The retrieve direction can be easily switched from left hand to right hand and the spools are easily changed with a push on and click off release.
One of the most popular creations to come out of the Nautilus think-tank is the industry first LaserIDTM line identification system: We have laser etched a white spot on the back of each FWX spool to write the line type and weight that you are using. Write with a permanent marker and wipe it off with alcohol when you change lines. No more washed out or lost line stickers.
