Re: Winston Boron IIt or IIx rods?
If your brother wants a rod he should pick one by testing it out first. I know many people who like the Winston BL rods and know many who like Sage Z-Axis and others Orvis Helios... they are all well made high end rods. But as has been said before, the caster should cast the rods first and select the one(s) he likes the best.
