Danielsson LW vs Nautilus CCF

Other than the price differential, how does the Danielsson LW 8twleve and the Nautilus CCF 10 compare?

Both are great reels. The LW 8-12 is a bit lighter by 2 oz ( 7.3 oz) and has a larger capacity line/backing capacity then Nautilus No.10
Its HD brother weights 10.3 oz , cost more and the HD drag can stop a whale.
LW drag is lighter, but still suitable for all freshwater fishing and mid-size tarpon.
Nautilus design has been evolving for the last 3 years, while Danielsson is unchanged since it introduction in 2000-2001.

In may personal opinion Danielsson has a better design. You should probably look around and see both reel to be convinced.

The Danielsson current prices, after recent 20% hike, are still 30% lower then used to be ( when distributed by Loop) , thanks due to direct sale form the factory.

I just got a Nautilus reel and it's well thought out design. It''s a sealed drag combining both cork and carbon fiber . Made in the USA which is also a plus. FishHawk

I have both reels. The specs shown on the respective websites notwithstanding, I find the difference in backing capacity bewteen the two reels to be negligible. The spool is much easier to change on the Nautilus which, IMHO, is a big consideration when deciding on a reel to use for two-handed rods where line/spool changing is something done pretty often. Both reels are beautifully made and, as was mentioned above, the LW is lighter, which makes it a better fit for shorter, lighter rods.

Hope this helps.

Thanks guys! Man, what a hard decision!

The reel will be placed on a custom 10wt 9' Fly Logic rod, with FAST action. The reel will be spooled with 11wt intermediate line. This rod will be used for Great Lakes Salmon, tarpon, jacks, spinner sharks, and in the near future, bones, and smaller trevally. I will use it in the surf, flats, channels, and off boats.
Does this info sway the comparison to either reel?

Also, how well do you guys think a Lamson Velocity would handle in saltwater conditions?

You probably be better of with Danielsson HD 9-13

http://www.danielsson-flyreels.se/us/prod_hd.php

it will take wt.11 + 250y or #30 lb of regular Dacron. The drag will is perfect for Chinooks and Tarpon. You will never use max. drag setting anyway, as it can break 40+ lb tippet.

The Lamson is in a second league.

Can the reel handle giant trevally, if I ever tangle with one?

People are catching Tuna on HD reels. Unless you want to fight whale the drag will handle large salt water fish.

It you have to much $$$ you can pick up
Danielsson anti-reverse control, which comes in 4 sizes.

http://danielsson-flyreels.ehandel.n...control_series

9-14 weights 10 oz or so, the largest is 15-16oz, almost suitable for sperm whale

but here you are looking for $ 900-1000 reel ( Control)

Thanks for you help Salmo!
As of right know, I'm leaning towards the HD rather than a Nautilus CCF 10

Something to think about a lot of guides in FLa use the Nautilus along with their Tibors and Ables that should tell you something about the CCF reel.

A week or so ago I received my Charlton Mako 9500 and 9550 reels.

I don't think you can find anything better.

HAHA Well Pete, who could argue?

Amazing pieces of work although the Charlton for my taste was a little like the batmobile



Vs. a more subtle yet elegant coupe (Danielsson).




Would I buy a MAKO if I had the cash? Absolutely!!!

Both Tibor and Nautilus are manufacture in FL, not Sweden. So marketing, local ties and the facts that guides are getting them at 50% discount make the difference…….
Since Danielsson is sold directly from the factory, there are no discount for guides…..

It is well know that 90% computers run on Windows. Does it mean that Windows or Vista ( poor copy of Apple OS X, Unix base systems ) is better then Macs/OSX?



Mac – BMW
Windows/Vista : Hundi

But seriously, all mentioned reels ( Tibor and Nautilus ) are great , and what guides are using is effected by many factors.
The differences between the products are small.

BTW, It is better to compare HD with other reels for general salt water applications, and consier anti-reverse "Contorl" are the top line ( $ 1000 )

Lol, the Control and Mako reels are sweet, but they are more like this:

Bugatti Veyron

While I can only afford this:

LOL

In all reality, the max of my budget is the HD or CCF. I would love a Mako or Control, but they are too expensive...right now

Anti-reverse Control reels made by Danielsson for Batman....

The two shown below have just arrived. Weights ( 7-12; 8.8oz, capacity in between HD 7-10 and 9-13) and bigger ( 8-13) one 10.6 oz and capacity 10% higher then HD 11-14. Dual regulation of drag ( at max. is a bit stronger then HD ) . The largest 11-infinity is perfect for Sperm Whale and weight 16 oz.

I am also attaching specs of all Danielsson reels. I would subtract ca. 15% backing as they assume that the gap form line to housing is only 2mm ( 3/32")
