"Incredible" is the only way to describe this new series; they are arguably some of 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 Winston's new, striking lightweight graphite rod tube.
Two B3x lengths in a 6wt....the 9' and 9'6" Both feature the new Featherlight Anodized Aluminum reel seats. The 9' has a standard cigar grip and the 9'6" features the full-wells grip and cork fighting butt. Exceptionally light all-around rods with extraordinarily broad casting range of 25-100+ feet. On big rivers, for big fish, in stronger winds, these rods will provide you everything you need without being too stiff. Although it has incredible power, can generate very fast line speeds, they are designed to give you incredible versatility: Ideal for streamers, nymphs, big water, big winds, yet versatile enough for gentle dry fly presentations up close.
