Default Nautilus FWX 3/4 or Galvan Spoke S-4?

Thought I had made my decision on a reel for my Winston GVX 490. I got sidetracked looking at the Nautilus. Any opinions? The Nautilus is lighter but I do like Galvan and have little knowledge of Nautilus other than what I have read, which has all been very poistive.

I have been very pleased with my Nautilus, very smooth , everything fit and finish wise is fantastic. Mine is a 3/4 so it has only been tested by the occasional 13" Rainbow, so I can't comment on the drag other than its smooth.

I've got the spoke in both 3wt. and 6wt. and I am very happy with them, I've never tried the Nautilus but I don't think I've ever heard anything bad about them. I think both of the drags are very similar, you don't want to have to stop a freight train with them.

Cabelas is not a Nautilus dealer so in order to use my gift cards I ordered the S-4 today. I'm thinking the black with green spoke will look nice with the Winston green. Now to decide on a line. Rio gold is on my 5 wt Sage and Tibor reel so just may stay with that.

Got it! Love it! Think it will look nice matched with Winston green.
