Winston Boron 3X Winston Boron III X at Anglers Lane
Winston Boron III X
For 2016, Winston upgraded the Boron III X rods incorporating our 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 we 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.
"Incredible" is the only way to describe this series introduced in 2012. The Boron 3x rods are arguably the finest fly rods ever made by Winston. 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. Featuring a stronger butt section for lifting more line off the water the Boron IIIx rods 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 Winston's new, striking lightweight graphite rod tube.
Most all Winston Boron IIIx fly rods are 4-piece rods; do note the three wonderful 5-piece "briefcase" rods listed at bottom.
Note as of Oct 2015: Winston has made some slight revisions to the guides and reel seat for this rod for 2016, but not the blank. Now is a great time to buy a wonderful rod with a timeless blank at an incredible price. (Selling fast so please don't delay. Already sold out since 10/5/15: 904-4, Joan Wulff 905-5)
