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.

When I first bought the combo it felt nice. The case was excellent and the rod was finished nice and had a good moderate action. The reel was a nice beginners reel. The line felt very cheap. I did not plan on using either anyway. My first impression of the reel and line were spot on. The line loses its coating very fast, and does not appear to retain another coating if applied by the user. Not that big of a deal. The rod casts very well. It offers good line control in a stream. Excellent control on short casts, as well as the ability to shoot the line out to the backing. My major complaint is the handle. I used this thing 4 hours or more a day everyday, which is more extreme than most people that are looking into this combo. After 30 days everytime i used the rod the cheap cork was coming off in my hands.

Purchased in Feb of 2010 to learn that art of fly-fishing the flats of Florida’s Panhandle, great set up! I am replacing the reel, but have had no issue with the line or reel as of yet, I just found a better one. Landed a Lady Fish without issue in July. I broke the rod, presumably damaged during the height of my learning curve, and less than a week latter had a new one from TFO. Just be prepared, the no fault requires you to pay S&H and a fee of $25. All in all though, a lot cheaper than buying an entirely new set up. Now in WY, I have a smaller pro series TFO rod, but still use the NXT 8/9 wt in high winds, and to throw large hoppers.

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....
