Introducing the NEW BORON III X (3wt-8wt)
Upgraded With Our New Shooting Guides. Extraordinary All-Purpose Performance Rods – Now Even Better.
We have improved the greatest all-around rod series ever made. For 2016, we have upgraded the Boron III X rods incorporating our new friction-free ‘Shooting Guides” to take the world’s best performing fly rods and make them even better. These rods now shoot line effortlessly, allowing you to generate even more line speed without compromising the smooth feel of the rod. Featuring advanced Boron III materials and technology, these incredibly lightweight, powerful, fast action rods have an even broader casting range – the widest casting range of any series we make. The added energy of Boron allows the angler to effortlessly control the line speed by speeding up or slowing down the casting stroke while maintaining pinpoint accuracy. This makes them ideal all-around rods for the vast majority of situations an angler may encounter, whether it’s making highly accurate, long distance casts or delicate, precise presentations up close.
Fast action 5- and 6-weight rods with full wells grips for trout fishing? Fast action oversized sticks aren’t my usual choice for trout but on a recent trip to Labrador where I knew skater dry flies, mouse patterns and streamers were required I figured what the heck – bring them along.
Introducing the NEW POWERFUL EXTRA FAST, HIGH LINE SPEED Boron III Plus Series – (5wt – 12wt.)
Serious rods for serious anglers for serious fish. Featuring a full spectrum of saltwater rods for every possible fishing scenario. Included in the Plus series are three extra powerful, reinforced Jungle rods designed specifically for Peacock bass and Dorado. The Plus series also includes high-performance freshwater 5wt. and 6wt. rod models. The “Plus” stands for incredible line speed, extra power and design qualities needed to handle monster flies, the wind, sinking and oversized head lines and of course, big, big, fish. Boron III Plus rods are lightweight, smooth casting and feature our new shooting guides, green reel seats and, of course, unmatched Winston quality and craftsmanship.
I took my 9’ 5-weight Boron III LS on a recent trip to Patagonia. I’ve spent a lot of time there over the years and know all too well how hard the Argentine winds can be on slower action fly rods. So I debated taking the LS on this trip. But I’ve come to love the feel and performance of the rod so much, I couldn’t stand to leave it behind. The rod saw a lot more use down there then I thought it would, and I was impressed on how well it did handle the windy days – one day was so bad the wind knocked me over! But my favorite experience with it by far was on a small spring creek outside San Martin.
