Winston Boron III X 9'6" 7wt Fly Rod

The R.L. Winston BIIIX 796-4 complements of one of my favorite rods, the powerful Sage Method 796-4. The beauty in the R.L. Winston 796-4 BIIIX lies in its ability to be infinitely delicate yet so powerful. I loaded this rod with a Scandinavian shooting head and versileader that was perfect for a river the size of the upper Klamath or Trinity. I joked it was an heirloom when I pulled it out to fish. "Remember these rods? They are called single handers." Paired with a light RIO Scandi body and a small fly, it s a single hand spey casting champ. Anywhere I am looking for tippet protection or delicacy for large fish I am going to reach for The Green Beauty. 

Winston has improved the greatest all-around rod series ever made. For 2016, they have upgraded the Boron III X rods incorporating their new friction-free ‘Shooting Guides” to take the world’s best performing fly rods and make them even better. These rods now shoot line effortlessly, allowing you to generate even more line speed without compromising the smooth feel of the rod. Featuring advanced Boron III materials and technology, these incredibly lightweight, powerful, fast action rods have an even broader casting range - the widest casting range of any series they make. The added energy of Boron allows the angler to effortlessly control the line speed by speeding up or slowing down the casting stroke while maintaining pinpoint accuracy. This makes them ideal all-around rods for the vast majority of situations an angler may encounter, whether it’s making highly accurate, long distance casts or delicate, precise presentations up close.
