Re: Winston Boron II MX 5/6 wt 9ft
Several years ago I received a Winston B2MX 9' 5wt while signing up for a life membership in Trout Unlimited. It came with a Lamson Guru 1.5 loaded with 5wt line. I did not like the way it loaded so I experimented with a reel with 6wt line at a fly shop. It seemed easier to cast so I loaded my Guru with 6wt Rio Gold; it was an improvement. Frankly, its not as enjoyable to use as my Sage Zaxis 5wt 9' with Rio Gold 5; Winston B2x 6wt 9' with Gold 6; or even my Albright A5 5wt 9' with Grand 5.
It seems too stiff to me.
