Oops, didn't mean to cross the line on the images thing, sorry about that. I posted thumbs and relinked them to the correct size:
As for my Nautilus fly reels, I have the FW3, FW5, and FW7. When I first picked up a Nautilus Feather Weight, I very surprised how light it was, but could tell it was built solid from high grade aircraft aluminum. The drag is what I like the most, namely the start up inertia, very important when playing fish that make hard quick pulls like big pike, musky, and lots of saltwater fish (which I do not fish for) and other freshwater game. The start up drag is smooth and controlled, no hesitation while slowly building up to the drag setting. The drag is easy to adjust with an oversized knob, even while playing a fish. I never worry about my Nautilus having a sticky drag. The drag is internally sealed, so no maintenance and no down time. I haven't had any problems with my reels, and they have been taking a beating this year and are still going strong.
Changing spools is very easy. Whats really cool, but haven't done yet myself, is that you can have custom colors created for your reel. So if want that favorite bright pink reel you've always wanted, they probably can do it for you.
I really don't care where a reel is made, even though they are built in good ole USA, but I do care if a company puts alot into quality control and attention to detail...ie each comes out identical to the next one, no sloppy machining and cnc'ing. I'm sold on Nautilus and will be switching out all my reels to Nautilus next year. Nautilus has excellent customer service, lifetime warranty and a great fly reel....oh did I say they also look good to!
I don't represent or work for Nautilus, I just think they make some of the best high quality reels.
