BORON COMPOSITE was originally developed for use in advanced aerospace applications. Since 1998, we have led the way in utilizing its remarkable properties to create high performance fly rods. Today, the five Boron III series we offer are among the lightest, strongest and most powerful rods in the world. Only Winston provides anglers with the Boron advantage. If you haven’t fished a Boron III yet, now is the time, for they have truly superior performance and distinct benefits compared to other rods.
- Incredible performance at all distances
- Extraordinary power and strength, without sacrificing “feel”
- Lighter weight results in less casting fatigue
- Increased sensitivity and hook setting power
Performance across a very broad casting range. Boron has higher compressive strength and flexural modulus than other fly rod materials. This translates into finely tuned power-transfer tapers that produce an incredibly broad casting range. And that translates into far better performance, line control and accuracy at all distances.
Power and feel. Boron rods combine added line speed and extraordinary line-lifting capabilities with the wonderful "feel" you expect from a Winston. They provide unmatched power, without sacrificing smoothness and touch.
Lightweight strength. Boron is incredibly lightweight, yet five times as strong and twice as stiff as steel. By incorporating this proprietary material into our designs, we can build fly rods that are radically lighter and up to 25% stronger than those made from graphite alone.
