How are these 3rd generation Boron Winston rods different? Winstonís use of Boron and graphite composites in their rods creates a most delightful fly rod: these are rods that are light in hand, powerful to cast, tuned to the short presentation and the long bomb, and are probably the most generally pleasurable and effective fly rods to fish a wide variety of conditions. Winston is consistently fine tuning their Boron composite technology and upgrading finish components, producing actions and performance that is superior in small ways to previous generations of fly rods that we already came to appreciate as being the best of the best.
