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 the NXT Black Label rod 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 rod simply offers the highest performance to price ratio of any fly rod available and it’s covered by TFO’s full lifetime warranty.
The foundation of the NXT Black Label is a moderate action blank which offers plenty of forgiveness for delicate presentations and cushioning light leaders but loads easily for longer casts into the wind.
New for 2023, are additions to the family of an 8’6” 4-weight and a 9-foot, 6-weight.
The rods are a handsome, matte black with half wells grips (4, 5 and 6-weight) and a full-wells (8-weight) 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.
All NXT Black Label rods come with a rod sock.
