The best of the best in big game reels.
Designed to be fished beyond IGFA regulations, The Nautilus GTX is equipped to go head-to-head with your terminal tackle, and with a maximum drag of 25+ pounds, the GTX is built to put the brakes on the fastest and strongest fish on the planet. Weighing in at only 8.7 the GTX is an absolute monster of a reel perfect for tarpon, sharks, tuna, billfish and gt’s. The GTX Pentadrag braking system is a new design that is best described as a hybrid NV-G/CCF-X2/X-Series drag on steroids. The Pentadrag features 3 cork and carbon fiber surfaces and two free floating carbon fiber surfaces that are topped with a Kevlar®/carbon fiber hybrid precision plate that ensures even pressure at all points of the drag surfaces. The cork acts as an insulation and compression material to ensure a smooth drag transition while the carbon fiber delivers the market-leading overall smoothness that Nautilus Reels is known for. The lightweight reel with the durability and overall strength to weight ratio sets this reel apart from the competition. Included on the reel is the Hook keeper that keeps your big flies at bay.
