Adding to our industry-leading Boron IIIx series, for 2012 we are excited to introduce three new 5-piece Boron IIIx specialty rods..."the ultimate Boron IIIx 5-piece travel rod." These three new 9 foot rods in 4-weight, 5-weight and 6-weight models incorporate the same incredible versatility and smooth-casting fast action as our highest performance Boron IIIx rods. Moreover, these new Boron IIIx 5-piece rods pack into a tiny 24" long beautiful deep green graphite rod tube, 5" inches shorter than the tube that holds our 4-piece rods. All three rods in this series (490, 590 and 690) come with cigar grips, and a choice of either nickel silver reel seats with beautiful burled box elder inserts, or our lightweight anodized aluminum reel seats...all ready to pack into the overhead bin or slip into your bag. Let the adventures begin!
