R.L. Winston on Boron IIIx Fly Rods:
Legendary for crating the best fly rods in the world, Winston’s rich heritage began more than 80 years ago. Through the years, the company has earned an esteemed reputation among fly fishers. Such a reputation isn’t earned overnight. This respect is earned during streamside conversations between anglers comparing tools of the trade. This reputation is earned by casting for the first time and getting hooked up quicker than the fish. That is the appeal of a Winston. For the first time in our history, we are proud to offer R.L. Winston Rods coinciding with the introduction of their most advanced Fly Rods ever. The lighter, faster Boron IIIx material generates more response and power in an incredibly smooth, versatile Series of Rods. The leap in technology translates into a wide, effective casting range, from precision in tight cover to double hauling extreme distances. They generate faster line speeds than Boron IIx Rods without compromising Winston’s coveted smooth, balanced feel. Each rod is built in Twin Bridges, MT.
