Default Re: Winston BIIX?

I'm a Winston LT 5pc guy myself but I like the Boron IIX. Winston is coming out with their new Boron IIt Trout Rods. Here's what they say: "With this series, we have moved our proven second generation boron in a whole new direction, with extraordinarily lightweight rods that combine the powerful, high responsive characterists of Boron II with the legendary smoothness and delicacy of our more traditional rods". Sounds like a Winston brochure doesn't it?

They are available in: 7' 6" 3 weight that weighs 2 ounces, 8' 3 weight that weighs 2 1/8 oz.,
8' 4 weight weighs 2 1/4 oz, 8' 6" 4 weight weighs 2 1/2 oz, 9' 4 weight weighs 2 1/2 oz.,
8' 6" 5 weight weighs 2 1/2 oz and a 9' 5 weight that weighs 2 5/8 oz. These rods are all
4-piece with a burled box elder insert nickel silver uplock reel seat. They will sell for $625.
We should have them in the shop by mid December. Something else to think about. I've seen them. They're sweet!
