7wt: Light in hand, and extremely responsive, these 7 weights are becoming the go-to for dedicated bonefish anglers worldwide.

8wt: built for all day casting at a variety of saltwater species including bonefish, redfish, stripers, snook, and various other species, this rod is up to the task.

9wt: An unbelievably light 9 weight that produces fast line speed with incredible accuracy. The perfect rod for presenting heavy crab patterns to picky permit, feeding baby tarpon in the mangroves, and hunting giant red fish.

10wt: With great power comes great fish. Use this smooth and powerful 10 weight for quick shots on Roosterfish, Sharks, blitzing GTs, and more delicate presentations to tarpon.

11wt: The new standard for an all-around Tarpon rod. With a little more feel than a 12 weight, this 11 will make pinpoint presentations when a pack of silver kings are bearing down on the skiff.

12wt: With amazing lifting strength in the butt section, anglers can pull hard on powerful fish like Tarpon, False Albacore and GTs. A bit better than the 11wt when sinking lines are needed as well.

What an amazing fly rod. This rod is light in the hand, incredibly accurate, it’s not to fast and not to slow. It’s my go to rod for targeting snook and big bull reds

AIR Salt 9’ 8 wt

The AIR Salt is one of the finest rods I’ve ever used. Enough backbone to punch a fly through the wind on the Middle Texas coast, yet soft enough to make a gentle presentation to a hungry redfish. The AIR Salt 8wt is my go to boat rod and my clients are never disappointed.

Love the rod

It’s a cannon, throws big Game Changers and smaller Carp flies equally as well!!

Don Horton
Air Salt 8 Weight

The Air Salt 8 weight has a sublime feel that enhances accuracy at distance. It’s a confidence builder to have this rod in hand when you see a push of waking bonefish headed in your direction. I line it with SA Amplitude Grand Slam and Bonefish fly lines. It’s special. It’s unmistakably a Winston.

Rick Williams, Idaho Angler
Big Salt

Just received the 11-weight Air Salt for an upcoming trip to Christmas Island. It’s a beautiful rod with a smooth progressive flex, boron power in the butt, yet also tip feel for loop control, something often hard to find in the 12-weights — hence my choice of the 11. Can’t wait to test it agains the GTs!
