Nautilus NV 8/9
Nautilus Reels manufactures the best looking and best performing fly fishing reels in the world.Our high end fly reels are the NV (EN-VEE) family of reels. The reels are available in five sizes and 10 configurations, and are unparalleled in weight, good looks and performance. The Nautilus NV 5/6, 6/7, 8/9, 10/11 and 11/12 and their G-Spool siblings are completely impervious to the elements and will outperform any fighting class reel on the market. The NV series feature a larger version of the CCF drag system compared to their Nautilus CCF siblings, and stainless steel components have largely been replaced by ceramics and titanium. The only aspect in which the reel is exceeded in performance is by its slender looks and subtle beauty. Machined entirely out of aircraft grade Aluminum, no details have been omitted: from its low profile drag knob and counterweight to the 100 and 200 yard backing markers on the inside of the spool. These reels will impress you.
All NV reels feature titanium drag shafts, and are loaded with the latest technology in high performance ceramic micro bearings. Since ceramics and titanium are impervious to the elements, you are guaranteed to spend less time worrying and more time fishing. NV reels feature a “thrust bearing to thrust bearing” drag design for effortless cranking resistance under any load, ensuring the smoothest line retrieval of any reel on the market. Using titanium and ceramics has allowed us to downsize components, increase the drag surface by over 75%, and still decrease the overall weight without sacrificing the fighting class qualities that are the hallmark of our products.
