The new lighter, faster Winston Boron IIIx fly rod material has a significant impact on the design of Winston’s newest line of fast, incredibly light, smooth Boron IIIx fly rods. These new rods are lighter, faster, more responsive, more powerful and yet still incredibly smooth, versatile rods with an unbelievably wide casting range. In terms of action, these rods generate faster line speed than the Boron IIx counterparts that they are replacing, without compromising their coveted smooth and balanced “feel.” A breakthrough in performance rod design. Made in Twin Bridges, MT.
"Incredible" is the only way to describe this new 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.
