For 2005, Nautilus Reels combined the best features of the award-winning Nautilus saltwater series and compressed them into one of the most advanced, lightweight and attractive reels available today – the Nautilus Feather Weight.
The FW series features a large-arbor design and is machined entirely from 6061 bar stock aluminum. The reels are light – the No. 7 weighs only 4.5 ounces – and come with Nautilus’ lifetime warranty. They feature a rugged drag made of carbon fiber sealed inside the center hub for maintenance-free use, even in salt water. The drag offers smooth resistance at all settings and easily ranges from free-spool almost to lockdown. The Nautilus Feather Weight series includes models for lines up to 8-weight and are available in either black or titanium anodized finishes. The No. 5 will hold 140 yards of 20-pound Dacron and a 5-weight line, and the No. 7 holds 175 yards of 20-pound Dacron with a 7-weight line. The reels retail for $275 to $325.
