VSL is an acronym for "very smooth and light," which gives you an idea of what to expect from the Winston VSL fly rod. This rod combines the smooth and progressive performance of a graphite rod with an excellent price.
The Winston VSL fly rod is designed to mimic the design features and performance of higher end Winston graphite rods at an affordable price point. Each model is designed with a strong backbone, allowing for rapid line speeds and greater lifting power. The rod is also relatively lightweight compared to other options and has a fast action.
There are a variety of models available in the Winston VSL fly rod series. The 3-weight, for example, is the shortest length model and is perfect for fishing creeks and streams. The 6-weight option provides more power, and is ideal for larger nymphs and trout. It's also suitable for both sinking and floating lines. The 3- to 6-weight models come with cigar grips.
Heavier models, ranging from 7- to 10-weight rods, are equipped with full-wells grip and fighting butt. These rods are ideal for bigger fish. The 9-weight, for example, could be a good option for species such as redfish and snook. The 10-weight is designed for fish such as cobia and permit.
There's no doubt that the Winston VSL fly rod is an attractive model. With a metallic tint, wooden insert and amber color wraps the VSL looks fantastic. The rod also has a nickel silver reel seat and comes with a gold aluminum storage tube, complete with printed Winston name.
