Winston Boron IIIx Fly Rod 1

The Winston Boron IIIx fly rod combines speed, smooth action and power into a fantastic overall package. It's built using the third generation of Winston's now famous Boron composite material, and combines high performance technology with traditional craftsmanship.

One of the best features of the Winston Boron IIIX fly rod is the highly responsive tip, allowing for precise presentation. Whether you need up close accuracy or a long, smooth cast, this rod can do it all. The Winston Boron 3x fly rod has a fast action, and also comes with an extra strong butt section for lifting more line.

Winston Boron 3x fly rods are available in line weights ranging from three to ten. The three-weight is perfect for small creeks, but is still capable of casting in light winds. The 10-weight is highly powerful, but still light and perfect for smaller tarpon and saltwater species.

The Winston Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee covers you, the original owner, against manufacturer's defects and breakage. You can either choose the saltwater-safe reel seat, made from feather light anodized aluminum, or the nickel silver with wood insert. The rod also comes with a graphite tube.

Winston Boron IIIx Fly Rod Reviews

B IIIx 4 weight 8' 1/2" Review by Charles
Posted on 4/26/16
This is an incredible rod. For those who have better than average casting and control skills, this rod is pure enjoyment. Very accurate, very light, and very much a joy to cast. If you are having a difficult time trying to choose your next high end rod, be certain to call Trident and speak with Josh. They have some great programs and he will make your decision making much easier.

81/2' Elder 4weight
Cast softly but when flexed the rod becomes alive but still connected to you. No need for two rods for all dry fly stuff. Best rod I have cast to date 45years fly fishing Light physical and perceived weight Can't go back now

The Winston I have been waiting for.
Great Dry Fly Rod- 81/2 ft 4 wt (Elder) Review by John E.

I am a huge fan of Winston fly rods, having owned several GVX and GVX select. This is my first Boron rod, and it casts very smoothly with great sensitivity and "backbone". It is a joy to cast. Trident made my purchase possible by allowing me to use their Trade Up program. I appreciate their pricing, shipping, customer service, and good advice. This rod is just plain fun to cast.
