Another south Florida native, Nautilus has put together two of the most reliable drag materials together in their reels: cork and carbon fiber. They are the lightest large reels we’ve seen, and as such a lot of people are falling in love with them. We stock the NV series, and have found it to be a great performer in our home waters. Nautilus also offers a full-scale custom shop, where you can put as many (or as few) options on your reel as you’d like. Many of our customers want a custom reel, and while they can take a few months to complete and cost more, it’s a cool thing to “kit-out” your reel to your specifications in both function and form. This is an involved process, so we recommend that if you want a custom Nautilus you send us an email or give us a call.
