Winston VSL Rods

Our new VSL rods aren't merely a series of lightweight, high line speed graphite rods. They're an incredible design upgrade at an equally incredible price. For the first time, progressive, fast action rods from Winston are available for under $300. VSL stands for "very smooth and light." Utilizing design attributes from our higher end graphite rods, the VSL series provides power and smooth, balanced performance. They feature a beautiful olive gold color with a hint of metallic luster, amber colored wraps and a nickel silver reel seat with wood insert. The gold aluminum rod tube is printed with the Winston name.
