Re: Winston Boron IIt vs Scott G2, 3wt, others?
If a 2-piece rod isn't an issue, you may want to consider a Winston Tom Morgan Favorite (TMF). It is by far my favorite rod, truly an outstanding dry-fly rod. It's listed as a 4wt, but many consider it a 3.5wt (though still lined with a 4wt line). I got a good deal on an 8' 4wt Biit (which many consider a 4-piece TMF), it's a great lawn-caster, haven't gotten it on the water yet (I keep grabbing the TMF!). I haven't fished the Scott, Sage, or Orvis rods listed but have good things about them all. Good luck!
