Boron Advantage

WHAT IS BORON?

Boron is an aerospace material which has been processed into lightweight fine diameter tungsten wires with incredible strength. This is a very different and much stronger material than graphite. Its amazing strength to weight ratio has been utilized for years in the aerospace and aviation industries where lightness and strength are both extremely important. We work with the same suppliers as the aerospace industry to source our Boron composites so the advanced, high tech properties of Boron can be uniquely applied in our fly rod designs. We are a true leader in fly rod design utilizing these materials. In testing the properties of Boron composites, this material is stronger than steel, yet lighter than aluminum. Simply put, we believe there is no better material than Boron fiber with which to design the best fly rods one can own and fish.

WHY DO WE USE BORON IN OUR FLY RODS?

Using Boron fibers in the butt sections provides extraordinary strength and drives extra energy through the entire rod, creating a distinctive lively and crisp action. Fly rods made only from graphite fibers (without Boron) do not have this same energy. Winston’s Boron III designs are among the most advanced fly rod designs in the world. Because of Boron, our high performance fly rod designs have become extraordinarily complex, incorporating multiple materials and multiple tapers. A great fly rod casts accurately at a variety of distances with little effort while still optimizing presentation. All the premium Winston green fly rods included in this catalog feature our industry-leading Boron III materials and designs.
