"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.
All of the new BIIIx 5 weights featureed here..... 8'6", 9', 9' JWF and 9'6"'. All have cigar grips and the new Featherlight Anodized Aluminum reel seats. The 9'6" features the full-wells grip and cork fighting butt.
Perhaps the ideal, high-performance all-around 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.
* The Joan Wulff Favorite (JWF) features a special grip for more ergonomic fit.
