Hand-built here in Madison County, the Boron III X Fly Rod is one of Winston's greatest achievements in fly rod manufacturing. It is indisputably among the best all-around trout rods ever made. It is the ultimate in the race to find the perfect balance between fast and feel. One cast an you'll agree.
Design specifics include Winston's proprietary use of Boron III Technology in a refined blank taper that allows the B3X to have a very fast and powerful casting performance combined with a super soft tip section. This allows the rod to turn over flies in windy conditions from the boat or delicately present a #18 BWO on a gin clear spring creek. Enhancing these capabilities are Winston's friction-free ‘Shooting Guides” that aid in the smooth loading and shooting of the fly line, making it an absolute pleasure to effortlessly cast.
The Winston Boron III X is noticeably lightweight and responsive in the hand. Pair it with the ideal WF fly line taper and you have one of the best all around fly rods available that is capable of accurate casts from a wide range of distances. On shorter casts it is quick and precise. On long casts it has plenty of backbone to store the energy needed to turn over the fly. It's sweet spot though is in that middle range, where most of the fish are caught any way.
We've said it again and again here in the fly shop...You simply cannot go wrong with a BIIIX. It is impossible not to appreciate the workmanship that went into building each rod and the enjoyment that you'll feel when making a good cast is second-to-none.
