The Nautilus FWX series replaces the popular FW model. These new Nautilus FWX reels deliver even better performance.

Discover more about the advantages these new Nautilus reels provide.

With its progressive Giga arbor design, the FWX delivers faster line pick up, similar to Nautilus NV fly fishing reels.

The Nautilus FWX now includes a new, stainless steel one-way clutch in their TORQ-X™ clutch drive. This promotes instant drag engagement without any slack, and allows the retrieval direction to be easily switched. Plus, Nautilus has designed the FWX reels with a click tab release for easy changing of spools.

And this Nautilus reel includes something unique to the fly fishing industry: a nifty LaserID™ line identification system. Here’s how it works.

Each Nautilus FWX reel contains a laser-etched white spot on the inside of the spool. You can indicate the fly line weight and fly line type you’re using on the LaserID. Use a permanent marker to write this information – then simply wipe it off with alcohol when changing lines. No more dealing with washed out or lost line stickers.

Plus, you can also include your name and phone number. So, if you lose the Nautilus reel, you’ll have a better chance of getting it back.

Order your Nautilus FWX fly reels while you can.

These Nautilus fly reels are in high demand, so availability is subject to change.

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 two-to-four weeks, depending on availability. Please call us at 1.877.598.7322 to process a custom Nautilus reel order.

    Nautilus FWX 3/4

    There are a bunch of premium fly reels out there and they're all pretty good. I get that in a light fly reel, it basically holds line. Except, when that carp runs me into the backing. That is when the details they engineer into this reel, come into play. This reel is just more elegant than the others. This is what I want on my 4 wt rod.
