The Curated Take

Matt Beam, Fly Fishing Expert
By the Expert Community

The TFO NXT Black label fly reel is great reel for beginner fly fisherman. I would highly recommend this fly reel for anyone needing a backup fly reel or one for their kids. It has a very smooth and powerful drag system with a machined drag knob and is very lightweight. The ported design allows lighter weight and keeps water out. This reel is a die cast aluminum design that isn’t extremely durable, but at the price point its still great for a backup fly reel. The reel is not a fully caged design and does allow some fly line snags between the spool and cage.

Ideal for
  • Stacked disc drag system delivers great power
  • Ported design allows the reel to be lightweight
  • Machined drag knob adds durability
Not ideal for
  • Die Cast aluminum cage and spool cause decreased durability
  • Not a fully caged design allowing fly line snags

The NXT Black Label series of reels set a new benchmark for performance at an affordable price. Machined, cast aluminum frame, ported to reduce weight and featuring a machined handle drag knob and spool release for increased durability during rigorous use. The NXT Black Label series utilizes a stacked, alternating disc drag system that delivers plenty of drag pressure, with no startup inertia. Easy LH/RH conversion (no tools needed) and all reels come packaged in a black neoprene pouch. The three reel series is perfect for trout, warm water species and even light saltwater applications.

I'm an intermediate angler with little knowledge of equipment. Rylyn was very responsive to all my questions, even the ones I thought were stupid. Very open about what he does and how he is paid. I highly recommend him.

I bought an open box Orvis fishing rod and it was at a great price. The condition of the rod and the shipping time exceeded my expectations. The information I received from Capt. Mark was accurate and helpful. I would definitely buy from Curated again.

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
