"Incredible" is the only way to describe this new Winston series; they are arguably the finest fly rods ever made. Utilizing higher modulus third generation Boron/Graphite composite, Boron IIIx rods offer unprecedented performance. They have an even broader casting range that lets anglers control line speed for long casts directly into the wind or gentle presentations up close. They feature a stronger butt section for lifting more line off the water. They are highly responsive and very powerful, yet lightweight with great feel and liveliness. In the words of Winston's technical advisor Joan Wulff, "Boron IIIx fly rods are an amazing combination of speed, power and Winston smoothness." Winston Boron IIIx fly rods come with Winston's new, striking lightweight graphite rod tube.

Perhaps the ideal, high-performance all-around fly rods with an extremely wide casting range. Light, powerful, smooth, fun to cast. Able to cast in close with small flies, and yet capable of generating significant line speeds to punch into strong winds or cover longer distances with larger flies without feeling stiff. This is what fishing can be like on larger rivers - sometimes you need a rod that can do everything. Like a top-of-the-line sports car: you can "feel" that the power is in your hands, in your control.
