WHAT IS BORON?

Boron is a chemical element which can be 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 to 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 to design smooth casting fly rods with high compressive strength and extraordinary lightness.

WHY DO WE USE BORON IN OUR FLY RODS?

Using Boron fibers in the butt sections of our premium fly rods provides extraordinary strength and drives extra energy through the entire rod, creating a distinctive lively and crisp action. We have found that fly rods made only from graphite fibers (without Boron) do not have this same energy. Winston’s premium Boron III designs are among the most advanced fly rod designs in the world. Because of Boron, our high-performance fly fishing rod designs have become extraordinary complex, often incorporating multiple materials and multiple tapers. For an angler to be successful, a fly rod should cast accurately at a variety of distances with little effort. Our new Boron III designs allow you achieve that success.
