Talking Any reviews on the Nautilus FWX yet (FW then?)?

Hey Guys,

As you know, I went on a crazy Galvan buying binge. LOL My reels are all ready to go, except my one 6 weight reel. Its a brand new cross current g loomis, thats a fine looking reel, just very heavy. Looks purdy, smooth, however the Galvans are just over powering it . However, for a light/medium duty trout reel, the FWX's seem real nice too. I do not plan on targeting trout larger then 20-24'', so the 5/6 FWX should be fine...

I have just heard they lack the drag compared to the Galvan, which is why a t-8 went on my 7 and 8 weights, rather than the FWX. but, I wouldn't mind trying it out on my six weight, especially for the price!

The FWX reels look SICK as well.

Any reviews out there on it? I believe its the same drag system as the earlier FW series...And while were at it, how was the FW series and the drag?

Thanks guys!

Didn't you start a nearly identical thread already?

I think the FWX's are hitting shelves this week. I just spoke with Tim at Stillwater Outfitters. They are just getting their order in tomorrow, but he is really high on the reel.
