Air 2 9' 4 wt

An owner of Winston WT, B2X and B3X rods, I didn’t think there could be much improvement until I cast the 4 wt Air 2. I was sold. It's light, crisp, has that special Winston feel as you cast it, and with more power. Most of all, it performs incredibly well, which makes it fun to fish with.

Air 2 4wt

I love this rod. I'm a bit of a gear junkie and have cast my fair share of rods from various companies but winston definitely leads in my books. The feel and accuracy within the Air 2 is spectacular. The slightest nibble on your fly in the water and you'll feel it. The rod is strong enough to handle large trout and delicate enough to make the little guys fun to catch as well. Casting is buttery and smooth as long as you don't throw flies that cause too much drag. If I were to buy it again I'd go with the 5wt for sure. I wish I could afford it but even saying that I feel like I'm cheating on my 4wt... but go with the 5wt if you ever want to cast streamers or dry dropper setups. It's also durable, I care extremely well for my blanks but 2 weeks ago I went down into the river with a heavy rock slide. My rod survived but every section now has substantial scratches, as do my arms and legs. Those scars now remind me every day of how much I rather be fishing with my Air 2!

Great for nymphing and small streamers but also rad enough to throw dry flies.

It's more than a fly rod.....

This is more of a magic wand than it is a fishing rod. It 'casts' every spell I want it to, perfectly.
