Default Nautilus

What about the nautilus FWX? Super light and seems like a ton of reel for the money. Ross also came out with their new F-1 too...

Is the rod to match the reel or the reel to match the rod?

I would personally dig up an old Ross San Miguel on eBay.

Nautilus fly reels really stepped up their game when they replaced the fwx with the x-series.

I have a number of Abels and I don't find it too difficult to change the spools. I did buy another nut for the vest for fear of losing it, but never come up...
