This 9′ #8 Winston Boron III X could be your next streamer or light saltwater rod. The B III X’s reel seat is a stout silver anodized aluminum double uplocking seat with easy to grip rings. The guides are two SiC strippers followed by the hard chrome snake guides. This rod is powerful enough to turn over clunky steamers or flats flies even in a stiff wind! Made with the craftsmanship and attention to detail that Winston has become synonymous with.
