The Curated Take
This product is specifically for the individual who it is looking at getting started in fly fishing. This outfit is completely setup and ready to hit the water and comes in a 5wt and 8wt option cover most freshwater applications. This fly rod is known for breaking in the tip section and I suggest grabbing an extra tip from TFO to keep on hand. For the price, this is one of the best outfit options under $250. One advantage that this fly rod outfit has over most in its category is the cast aluminum reel unlike the plastic molded reels from other manufactures.
- Great for anyone getting started in fly fishing.
- Setup and ready with backing, fly line, and leader.
- Comes with a lifetime no-fault warranty.
- These fly rods are known for breaking in the tip section. I consider the Pro II a better and more durable option.
- Due to wear and tear, the fly line will need to be replaced within six months to a year. I suggest Rio Gold.
The TFO NXT Black Label Series is an affordable and versatile medium-fast action rod with excellent feedback and performance for all skill levels. This is a combo kit and includes everything you need to get started: rod, reel, case, backing, fly line, and tapered leader. Key Features: - Medium-Fast Action - The versatile action is forgiving for new casters and yet powerful enough for casting on those windy days. - Stainless-Steel Disc Drag System Reel - The sturdy, corrosion-resistant design works for both fresh and saltwater fishing alike. - Weight-Forward Floating Fly Line - Great choice for a variety of water conditions and the welded loop makes swapping out leaders a breeze. - Temple Fork Outfitter's Unconditional Lifetime 'No Fault Warranty' - The warranty is a safeguard for those 'oops' moments when you inevitably snap a rod section.
