The NXT Black Label series is designed to make fly fishing simple and affordable – TFO’s mission. And because TFO’s NXT series kits are the gold standard for fly fishing schools and educational programs across the United States, we consider it the most important product we make. Whether as a great gift for the aspiring fly angler or a superb back-up for the fisherman who has everything, the NXT Black Label quite simply offers the highest performance to price ratio of any fly fishing outfit available and it’s covered by TFO’s famous no-fault lifetime warranty.
These high-performance fly fishing kits flatten the learning curve by making it easier and more rewarding to become an active participant in this sport of a lifetime. The foundation of the NXT Black Label is the TFO Pro II medium-fast blank which offers plenty of forgiveness for delicate presentations and cushioning light leaders but loads easily for longer casts into the wind. The rods are a handsome, matte black with half wells (5-weight) and full wells (8-weight) grips made from reconstituted cork for extreme durability. Aluminum oxide stripping guides, chromium-impregnated stainless-steel snake guides and an anodized aluminum up- locking reel seat make the NXT Black Label series great for chasing fish in fresh or saltwater.
NXT Black Label series of kits include a matching cast aluminum NXT BLK II (5-weight) or III (8-weight) size reel with and a stainless-steel alternating disc drag system. The reel comes loaded with 20-pound Dacron backing, a premium weight forward floating line with welded front loop and looped leader. The 80-foot fly line is up-lined one line size to insure the angler quickly feels the rod load and can quickly deliver a fly. NXT Black Label kits come packaged in a cordura rod and reel travel case ready for fishing.
