The GTX is a 5-inch diameter reel with a narrow 1.1-inch wide spool that holds 500 yards of 60-pound braid.
The spool is lightweight and intricately machined with our Giga spool design to promote strength, maximum line pickup, and fast line drying to prevent corrosion when stored.
The GTX Pentadrag braking system is a brand new design that is best described as a hybrid NV-G/CCF-X2/X-Series drag on steroids. The new Pentadrag features 3 cork and carbon fiber surfaces and two free floating carbon fiber surfaces that are topped with a Kevlar®/carbon fiber hybrid precision plate that ensures even pressure at all points of the drag surfaces. The cork acts as an insulation and compression material to ensure a smooth drag transition while the carbon fiber delivers the market-leading overall smoothness that Nautilus Reels is known for.
To control the drag tension, Nautilus designed the all new GripTorq drag knob. Intricately machined on 4 axes to promote light weight, strength and more grip than on any other drag knob in the industry. The GTX GripTorq drag knob measures 1.9" in diameter.
