Nautilus Reels: CCF series Nautilus Fly reels
Still the smoothest, toughest, and most consistent drag system in the market. The CCF series brought new technology into the big game fly fishing market by introducing a drag system that incorporated all the qualities of cork drags and added the unbeatable startup inertia of carbon fiber. Marrying Cork and Carbon Fiber (CCF), we were able to mitigate all the negatives of both materials: The high startup inertia and high maintenance requirements of cork, and the build up of heat of carbon fiber. We created the perfect braking system, and now have 6 just as perfect reels built around it!
Reels are available in black or brushed silver anodizing unless ordered in a custom color.
Big game fly fishermen, whether on a flat or in blue water, require ample backing capacity, smooth dependable drags for fighting long running fish, and large arbors for fast line retrieval even when several hundred yards of backing are in the water. Measuring 4.50” and 4.75” in diameter respectively the 12T and 12S offer all of the above with its oversized Nautilus CCF Disc Brake System™, delivering strong, consistent and smooth drag pressure with infinite settings. In addition, the oversized machined Delrin® handle on these two reels makes reeling in during long fights with fish more comfortable, and a generous palming rim lets you apply manual pressure when needed.
All Nautilus reels can be ordered with custom colored housings and spools. All available colors are pictured below. Anodizing varies from batch to batch, so we encourage our customers to order a spare spool at the time they order the original reel in a custom color in order to ensure a proper match. The cost for a custom colored reel in a single color is an additional $100 per reel. Spare spools are an additional $50 as long as it is the same color.
Delivery time for custom orders varies from 2 to 4 weeks, depending on availability. Please contact us to process a custom reel order.
