Temple Fork Outfitters NXT Fly Fishing Rod and Reel Outfits
Taking this back.
I purchased this combo a few days ago. Was excited to take it out to the river today to try it out. First five or six casts no problem, then I could no longer pull line off the reel. Turned the drag all the way on and off and everywhere in between to no avail. I cannot even reverse the reel with my hand. Only winds in.
I really had researched my purchase before I bought this combo. Very disappointed.

TFO NXT Combo
I have been using TFO rods for 8 years now and will never use another more expensive brand of rod. With this combo, I have the 9', 5/6 wt. rod and it casts smooth and flawless, however the TFO reel and the line that it came with frustrate me. I have lost several fish due to the line tangling (it loses it's lubricant very quickly) or the drag locking up. I would highly recommend ANY TFO rods but the reel just leaves me frustrated....

TFO NXT Fly Fishing outfit
I received this outfit for my birthday as an introduction to fly fishing. As a beginner I can say that this has been an extremely satisfying piece of equipment. I have had no problems and have progressed in casting very well using this rod and reel. I recently lost the tip overboard while dissembling and will be testing the no-fault warranty. Looking to buy another outfit.

Love these rods!
I picked up this little baby as my first fly rod. The great staff at Bass Pro showed me the basics and I was off. I now have 3 of them and fish all over Illinois with them. These are great starter kits and you can not beat their lifetime no-fault warranty.
