RL Winston Boron XTR rods (new)

I had the pleasure of casting the new Winston XTR Boron rods in 8wt and 9wt recently over at Blue Northern (ayer MA). Talk about line speed! I thought the 8wt was exceptional and a real standout in the gazillion rods I cast this winter and spring waiting for stripers to arrive. Now that they're here you might take one of these rods for a test cast - they'll provide a significant advantage for biting tight loops into the wind or carrying larger flies in a highly energized cast. The nice thing about the 8wt XTR is that it won't take it out on your arm - the rod does the work.

The 9wt was a major step up in terms of stiffness but is a proper tool for large stripers, flies and conditions. Both are beautiful works in the Winston tradition.
