Winston’s most versatile fly rod, the Air, has the broadest casting range we’ve ever seen from Winston. These rods have stellar short-game performance but are also powerful enough for long distance casting, especially with dry flies. A combination of Boron III Tech and SuperSilica resins make this rod one of the most durable, lively, and recovery-centric rods on the market. If you appreciate Winston rods but want a bit more versatility and performance, this rod is for you.
Boron III Technology w/ SuperSilica Resin - Winston’s Boron III Technology has revolutionized fly rod strength and lightweight rod design. Boron is 5x stronger than steel, 2x stiffer than steel, and 25% stronger than other graphite rods. Boron also has increased impact resistance and overall rod stability. Boron blanks have smoother energy transfer, increased hook setting power, and improved casting accuracy. SuperSilica Resin adds quick recovery speeds and more liveliness.
Chrome Nanolite Stripping Guide - A chrome plated nanolite stripping guide keeps the Air lightweight and allows any fly line to move through the rod effectively.
Chrome Plated Oversized Snake Guides - The oversized snake guides on the Air encourage distance casting by allowing fly line to quickly shoot through the rod. These guides are durable and stand up to weather and wear.
Figured Maple w/Nickel Silver Uplocking Components - The reel seat on the Air is a real work of art, classic Winston. A figured maple insert and nickel componentry compliment the Winston Green blank nicely. This reel seat is perfect for smaller trout reels and holds up well in all weather conditions.
Premium Graphite Rod Tube - Winston’s classic green graphite rod tube matches the blank color of the Air. These tubes hold up well in all conditions and protect the rod during travel and transportation. The Air also comes with a rod sock with an embroidered Winston logo.
Winston Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee - As of June 2019, Winston’s original owner guarantee covers every new Winston Boron/Graphite and Graphite fly rod against breakage or manufacturer defects. The rod owner must register the rod via warranty card or online. For all warranty work, the entire rod must be returned to Winston.
