Winston Nexus Fly Rod 1

The Winston Nexus is Winston's revolutionary new light all-graphite smooth action, premium rod series. These fantastic new high performance deep-black fly rods redefine the high modulus all-graphite rod category with an innovative new fast action combining Winston's legendary ultra-smooth 'Winston Action' with more modern, faster tapers.

The new Winston Nexus is a full series (3-weight through 12-weight) of exceptionally beautiful, smooth-casting "all-around" fly rods utilizing a new design to handle a range of conditions with faster tapers, especially through the lower half of the rod. They are a joy to cast, can generate added power when needed, and are made to Winston's extremely high standards of beauty and craftsmanship in Twin Bridges, Montana.

Because they are made with 100% graphite, without the significant added expense of Boron III, we can offer anglers the opportunity to own these incredible, smooth-casting fast-action premium Winston fly rods at an attractive savings from our top-of-the-line high performance Boron III rods.

Winston Nexus Fly Rod Reviews

Fast and Accurate Review by Paul
Posted on 11/9/15
The speed of action on this rod was quicker than I expected out of a Winston, and it was welcome. I have the 6wt. Tight loops, accurate casts and plenty of power. I tested 20 some rods before selecting this rod in all price points. This rod out performed them all even those that were several hundred $$$ more. Congrats to Winston for designing an amazing fast action rod at such a moderate price point.
A great rod at a good price point Review by StripStrike

I purchased this rod at Trident using the trade in/up program. I am very happy with the transaction.

Here's the skinny on the Nexus 9' 4-weight.
This is not the the GVX reformulated (a great rod in its own right). This rod feels much lighter and faster. I've fished it twice since my purchase and I am impressed with its performance. The rods is capable of launching small buggers and double nymph rigs with ease. At times I pushed it, half expecting the loop to collapse but it didn't let me down. I landed several browns and brook trout ranging from 12" to 18" and the rod handled them well. As far as the build goes what can I say? It's a Winston, top notch with the exception of the cork. I would say the cork is better than some of the other premium rods but not quite as good as the more expensive Winston models. I will purchase the five weight in the future.
