Nothing compares. Drag, design and performance make the NV-G the ultimate fly reel.
The NV-G series are built on the tried, tested and trusted NV 5/6 through NV Monster frames, and they feature the patented and award-winning NV CCF Disc Braking System.
The G-Spool design transforms your NV reels into uber-arbor fly reels that pick up line faster than any other comparable reel in the market. The G-Spool (Giga Spool) design reduces the reel weight significantly and generates less line coiling and much faster line retrieval (up to 15 inches per turn on the G-10!).
The unique CNC machining on these reels gives the impression that the backing is floating above the arbor, creating significant air space under the backing, which promotes faster backing drying. Wet backing is the leading cause of corrosion in fly reels, and the G-Spool design dries 14 times faster than traditional designs.
I bought an NV-G 7/8 for my Lake Pyramid reel. With monster Lahontan Cutthroat that get in excess of 20 lbs. I love the look of this reel and the way it hums when a Lahonton takes your fly. The drag is strong and smooth everything you can ask for when a trophy trout grabs your fly and makes a run to the bottom of the lake. I recommend trying one out for yourself. I can see why so many salt anglers use Nautilus reels.
