Nautilus X-Series Reel
"Beautiful reel"

These are beautiful reels. Light, stiff, great sealed drag, easy spool change. I use one for a 6-7 wt saltwater and steelhead. Love it. I have an XL which is for 6-7 wt. I use it for light saltwater, steelhead and carp. One of the finest reels I have ever owned.

"One of the finest in class"

Light, strong, large arbor, excellent 7lb. drag, beautifully machined, nicely finished, perfectly counterbalanced, no start up inertia. And a good price. These are a sleeper, one of the finest reels in its class.
