Hey sean, I'd wait a little bit on the Nautilus. The "floating cork disc" concerns me no end. Cork compresses and retains it shape well, but the idea of a free floating disc of cork undergoing both lateral and rotational compression simultaneously? Well, lets just let someone else determine the long term effects of that one!sean said:Ryan did you get to fish a Nautilus on xmas island?
Currently flipping the coin between the 14S Nautilus (as soon as it is released) or the loop 11/14 for a big spey/bluewater reel.
Should I just get em both:devil:
P.S. you can get the big loop from overseas downundery for about $150 off... The warranty will not be in play in the U.S., but hey, everyone here says they are the best and you'll never need the warranty anyway!:hehe:
