Nautilus NV-G Fly Reel

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.

Please note: backing can add 3-5 days to the shipping estimate

Nautilus NV-G Fly Reel Reviews

Nautilus NV-G 6/7 Review by Matthew
Rating
Posted on 11/23/16
I recently bought an NV-G 6/7 to upgrade from my Orvis Mirage III. I love the smoothness of the drag and that the spool doesn't free spin when the drag is turned all the way down. I like how my NV-G clicks when the fish makes a run but has a silent retrieval. Aesthetically it is a good looking reel and I like how well built it is. I am now a Nautilus Man and recommend this reel to all of my buddies that I fish with.

Nautilus makes great products that are the lightest and strongest in the industry. Sealed drag, and air space under the backing show the thought and engineering behind this great product! When combined with a light rod like the NRX, you can cast all day with no strain! I believe in function over looks, but with you get both. Great investment, and I don't see how they can top this for design, weight or looks. Great value for what you are getting

Got the 8 wt NV-G after using other, lesser brands. I love the lightness and the smoothness of the drag and the wind in. It gives me confidence on the water. I think the responsiveness of the reel has helped me have fewer break offs when fish run.

At Age 72 there is a certain cynicism that develops over time to all consumer items.. My many interests have included guns, cars,boats, fishing tackle, watches, electronics
(particularly stereo equipment) , investing (including hedge funds, mutual funds, stocks and bonds. Most intelligent people "do their homework" before buying, and therefore must evaluate the source of their information. Today the internet provides information for free that in the past one had to pay for: Magazines,Stock Research Reports, all sorts of recommendations. It doesn’t take long to understand that reports have been written (after all sorts of influences given to the writers). Putting all of this aside I would like to commend Trident (Ben) for the thoroughness of his " Reel Analysis.

In my earlier review of the Nautilus NV-G I compared its construction,and the company to a Porsche. Porsche makes changes to their cars slowly over time, refining every aspect of the car. Porsche 911 usually race against Ferarri and Corvettes. For those who have raced Porsches they are aware after a weekend of racing a Porsche can be driven home (With only the tires replaces) Ferarris and Corvettes usually get trailered home. I can use the same List that Ben has used in his Review and give a numerical score to the NV-G BUT realistically no reel
Will be PERFECT and a lot is subjective ,especially appearance. Good slogans do sell. " If I were stranded on a desert Island with only one reel this is the one I would want ( Then again I would
Rather be stranded with a beautiful woman ( and there are too Many to evaluate).

So now my conclusion IS talk to the salt water fisherman today that can afford any real they want and you will find Nautilus is by far the FIRST CHOICE
Nautilus G8 Great for Bonefish Review by Kurt

I just got back from my annual trip to Andros.
I picked this reel up to replace an old Billy Pate I have been using for years.
This reel is surprisingly light for its size , not that you are casting constantly when bonefishing but it was nice in the hand.
The reel felt very smooth when pulling line off and had plenty of drag when I needed it. The extra large arbor was also helpful a couple of times when the fish decided they wanted to run at me.
I was impressed by the machine finish of the reel. it has very tight tolerances and an attractive look. The spool unscrews from the center and was easy to take off, although the knob was very tight the first few times right out of the box.
Overall a great reel at a great price.
