A Review of Boron III Plus Saltwater Rods

DSCF2516

 By Louis Cahill
I have loved Winston fly rods since I cast one for the first time, but this is something completely different.
I just got my hands on a Winston B3 Plus 11 weight and took it to the Florida Keys for tarpon. I only own a couple of Winston fly rods but they have been among my favorite trout rods for a long time. When it came to saltwater, however, I have always favored rods with a much faster action. Anyone who fishes the salt will no doubt understand.

This new mini series of specialized nymphing fly rods consists of three 10-foot models (3, 4 and 5wt.). Each has been specifically designed for high sticking and European style nymph fishing.

The new Boron III Super 10 rods were designed with the versatility to handle a range of technical nymph techniques, double nymphs, weighted nymphs, strike indicators and light streamers. The rods feature our popular new “Shooting Guides,” with a new specialized down locking reel seat for optimum weight distribution and a 2˝ cork extension on the grip to reduce arm fatigue.

REVIEW: Boron III LS Fly Rods

 

0Q1B0198

By Ben Kryzinski , courtesy of Hatch Magazine

I get asked fairly often what I think the world’s best trout rod is. You want to hear about it? Sweet. Here’s what you need to know.

I’m looking for something very specific in my ultimate trout rod. I want a rod that will fish everything – dry flies, nymphs, small streamers, wets – with ease, that will make every cast in the book, and most importantly, that disappears in my hand. Which is why, when pressed for what my favorite trout rod is, I pick the 9’ 5-wt. Winston Boron III LS.

WINSTON’S NEW SHOOTING GUIDES DEFINED

Winston Upgrades Boron III X Fly Rods

written by Drake Magazine

When Winston added a third “I” to its BIIx rods several years back, the classic all-around sedan received an engine upgrade in the form of boosted horsepower. Thanks to a slightly stiffer mid-section and tip, the speedier BIIIx performed great in the wind and was more accurate at longer distances than its predecessor.
