From beginner anglers to those more experienced, TFO’s NXT Black Label Rods are an excellent choice that won’t cost an arm and a leg. Built in a 5 and 8 weight line option, the NXT series has an option for those looking to cut their teeth on species like trout, bass and panfish or those pursuing larger species like steelhead and even saltwater fish like striped bass and snook. With a moderate action, the NXT is a rod that you can feel the flex of in your hand, providing excellent feedback for those honing their cast while also giving the more seasoned caster a smooth casting rod with just the right amount of power. Priced below $150, the NXT Black Label is a rod that’s tough to beat whether you’re hitting the Great Lakes for some steelhead or spending your first season chasing the fall stocking trucks. 


Graphite - The NXT Black Label Rod features a graphite blank that has a moderate action. The graphite composition is a solid choice for this pricepoint blank, and the moderate action provides solid feedback whether you’re getting started or just want a little slower action in your rod. Finished with a matte black appearance, the NXT also has a look that will keep you happy for years to come. 


Aluminum Oxide Stripping Guides - Durable without sacrificing a lightweight feel, these Aluminum Oxide stripping guides are a reliable choice for the NXT series. Also, this is a material that won’t rust, so you can take this rod to the salt without fear of damage. 

Chromium-Impregnated Stainless Steel Snake Guides - With the addition of Chromium-Impregnated Stainless Steel Snake Guides, the NXT provides great line slickness and shootability. Also, these snake guides are designed to prevent rust to let you chase those salt-dwelling fish with confidence. 

Reel Seat

Anodized Aluminum Reel Seat - It doesn’t matter how long the day is or how many fish you were pulling on, the Anodized Aluminum Reel Seat on the NXT series is there to keep your reel nice and snug. Made with an uplocking construction, this reel seat holds your reel firmly, while the anodized aluminum composition prevents rust after those days spent on the beach. 

Rod Tube

The NXT family of rods comes with a cloth rod sock for quick storage. However, if you’re planning to travel, we recommend getting a rod tube for safer storage. 


As of September 2022, TFO offers a warranty that covers defects in material and workmanship. Should you break or damage your rod due to an accident or typical wear and tear, TFO offers repair or a replacement for a fee. TFO also offers replacement sections at a fee for a faster alternative.
