"AWESOME" is the word most commonly used to describe these rods. Our technical advisor Joan Wulff has stated, "they offer an amazing combination of speed, power and Winston smoothness." And we're prone to saying, "you really need to fish one of these." Utilizing higher modulus third generation boron/graphite composite, Boron IIIx rods offer cutting-edge angling performance. With the broadest casting range of any Winston series, these rods allow anglers to control line speeds for long casts into the wind or gentle presentations up close. They feature a stronger butt section for lifting more line off the water. They are powerful, yet lightweight with great feel and liveliness. They are, well, "awesome." The 5-piece trout models are the ultimate travel rods. All Boron IIIx rods come with our graphite tube.

3-WEIGHT
An extremely light, fast-action rod perfect for small creeks with the ability to cast comfortably at a range of distances even in light winds.

4-WEIGHT
Ideal rods when delicacy is needed for spring creeks and other technical waters, yet with reserve power capable of generating faster line speeds and handling windy situations and larger rivers. Broad casting range and an excellent all-around rod...exceptional versatility for a 4-weight.

5-WEIGHT
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.
