The Nautilus X-Series was a reel made for trout. It is smooth, sleek, and features the awesome sealed drag we have come to know and love from Nautilus. You will be hard-pressed to find a better trout or light salmon reel at this price.

The X-Series is one of the most fantastic trout reels we have played with. Whether you are fishing saltwater, freshwater, or something in between the X-Series has you covered with a completely sealed drag, light weight, and versitility. 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 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 for 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.
