Default Winston Boron IIt or IIx rods?

First Post!!

Just curious....My brother is looking at a new rig and has had numerous people tell him that Winston's Boron is the only way to go. I told him he needs to cast multiple rods before he makes the investment. I bought a Sage ZXL 3wt with a Tibor Light loaded with Rio double tapers line and wouldn't do it differently. The rod and reel have blown me away. We are both wet/nymph fisherman and the Z-Axis and TCR were a little too loaded for me. The ZXL has enough backbone for me to double haul with two bead heads on etc. but that isn't something that needs to be done. I have fished windy conditions and landed two fish over 7lbs on this rig since I got it in December and it has handled everything with ease. Just curious to see what others think. Thanks for the input.
