Winston Boron IIIx Rods

Boron is five times as strong and twice as stiff as steel, yet lighter than aluminum; it lets us add 25% more strength to graphite while significantly reducing weight. Our Boron IIIx rods take full advantage of this material's amazing properties.

"Boron IIIx Rods are an amazing combination of speed, power and Winston smoothness." Joan Wulff

"Incredible" is the only way to describe the newest, most advanced 'third generation' Boron IIIx rods from Winston. Arguably the finest rods Winston has ever made. These new Boron IIIx rods use Winston's lighter, higher modulus Boron III/graphite composite technology. These new rods are lighter, faster, more responsive, more powerful and yet still incredibly smooth, versatile rods with an extraordinarily broad casting range wide casting range. In terms of action, these rods generate faster line speeds than their Boron IIx predecessors, without compromising their coveted smooth and balanced feel. Anglers can easily control line speeds for long casts directly into the wind or gentle presentations up close. A breakthrough in rod design. Made in Twin Bridges, MT.
