Specialized Rods for Nymph Specialists
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. Our dynamic Boron III technology, combined with a longer length, progressive medium action and finely tuned rod characteristics, provides anglers with precise, delicate control of line, leader and fly placement. 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.

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 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.

Upgraded With Our New Shooting Guides. Extraordinary All-Purpose Performance Rods – Now Even Better.
We have improved the greatest all-around rod series ever made. For 2016, we have 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.
