Winston Boron III TH Microspey Rod
"Amazing rod"

I wanted to cover long distances on lakes that we cant float. This seemed the ticket. My two handed technique needed a lot of work; but its not so bad with a 5 wt. I use the Airflo Switch Line wf5f. Been working fine, but I have little to compare.

Winston Nimbus Fly Rod
"Fast action from Winston"

Beautifully crafted and designed fast action rod. A faster action than I'm used to from Winston, this rod has a lot of power for long casts but is still very accurate at medium distance too. Not as accurate close in as the B-lllx or ls, but still very, very nice. A little more fatiguing to cast than some other Winstons. It has a heavier swing weight and is not as lively as the boron offering;
