Winston BIIIX Fly Rod

Description

"Incredible" is the only way to describe this 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 our technical advisor Joan Wulff, "Boron IIIx rods are an amazing combination of speed, power and Winston smoothness."
Boron IIIx rods come with our new, striking lightweight graphite rod tube.
