The Nexus series is a new line of high-performance, very lightweight, fast action rods that redefine the high-end, all-graphite category. Their innovative design combines faster tapers, especially through the lower half of the rods, with the distinctive feel and smooth casting attributes that are hallmarks of a Winston. The result is all around rods ideal for a variety of situations; they are a joy to cast, and can generate added power when needed. By utilizing 100% graphite, we've reduced the higher material expense of Boron III used in our top-of-the-line rods. Nexus rods have a gorgeous deep black finish, and are made to our renowned standards of quality and craftsmanship.
