R.L. Winston AIR 2 Fly Rod

, ,

New for 2021 the R.L. Winston AIR 2.  A brand new Winston from top to bottom.



Introducing the brand new R.L. Winston AIR 2.  The next generation of all-around freshwater fly rods (3wt-6wt). These rods can do anything – present tiny dry flies to wary trout on flat water, cast a heavy streamer to the far bank in the wind, launch the entire line when you need it, and make quick, accurate close-range shots. From high stick nymphing, pounding the banks from the boat, or wet wading, the new AIR 2 is a pack rod, a travel rod, a beautiful rod, and an all-around rod. It’s the new Winston. When you can only bring one rod…the amazing new Boron AIR 2. You won’t want to leave home without it.

  • A New taper design that provides a faster, progressive all-around action.
  • Extremely light, yet powerful.
  • Introducing S-2000 a next-generation high modulus graphite material for faster recovery speed and smoothness.
  • New Boron Configuration for enhanced power and energy transfer.
  • New Winston-designed cigar grip for a better “feel” through the casting stroke.
  • The Custom HSR (High Strain Rate) resin provides an even faster recovery rate that adds a modern feel, is more durable, and provides greater part strength and less weight.
  • The new light wire shooting Snake Guides have a smaller profile with a new ECO slick coating and a Round Helix geometry that reduces line friction and produces added energy, accuracy, and distance management.
  • Designed and Handcrafted in Twin Bridges, MT.
