Re: Winston Boron IIt vs Scott G2, 3wt, others?
I have tried a G2, G and a Boron IIx. Never tried the IIt
My opinion - A Scott G is a better top water rod than a G2. (I still don't understand why they named the G2. It is totally a different rod than the G)
I did try a Boron IIX and I would still have it for top water if I did more top water fishing than I do. The IIX was as light as a feather and what a touch. It might be a bit fast on the hook set but I loved it. For nymphing I would snag hook 3/4 of the time so I sold it back on eBay.
PS... I agree with MoscaP... Scott and Winston make some really great rods.
