The GTX from Nautilus® Reels, a class of its own, designed to be fished beyond IGFA regulations. With a maximum 25lb drag, the GTX is built to put the brakes on the fastest and strongest fish on the planet.
This 5-inch diameter reel with a narrow 1.1-inch wide spool holds 500 yards of 60 pound braid. The spool is lightweight and intricately machined with a Giga spool design to promote strength, maximum line pickup, and fast line drying to prevent corrosion when stored. The GTX brake is a brand new design that is best described as a hybrid NV-G/CCF-X2/X-Series drag on steroids. It features a new pressure spring that is sandwiched between two aluminum discs that apply even pressure to the drag surfaces by rotating in unison.
The new dual drag surface features an oversized carbon fiber disc on one side and a cork/Kevlar®/carbon fiber hybrid on the other. The cork acts as a compression material to ensure a smooth drag transition while the carbon fiber delivers market-leading overall smoothness. The new Kevlar® mid layer provides additional rigidity to the drag surface and spreads the pressure more evenly across the surface, insulating any heat generated by friction and dampening vibrations for the smoothest perceived drag on the market. The Nautilus® GTX delivers 8.7 ounces of enahanced fighting power at an MSRP of $1300. Available in Black or Silver.

You can order all Nautilus reels with custom colored housing and spools. It costs an extra $100 per reel for a custom colored reel in a single color; each spare spool costs an additional $50 (as long as it’s the same color). Since anodizing varies with each batch, we encourage you to buy a spare spool when you place your order in order to ensure a proper match.
Delivery times for custom orders vary. Usually 2-4 weeks, depending on availability. Please call us at 1.877.598.7322 to process a custom Nautilus reel order.
