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 G8 Great for Bonefish Review by Kurt
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. Posted on 2/11/15
