Re: Another question about a rod for the new guy.
The rods Winston is most famous for, their WT series are definitely more of a medium action than what is most popular right now. Their LT series are a bit faster, but still slower than many. I think the Vapor series is a pretty stiff rod, and also looks quite different from Winston's more expensive rods.
You might create a thread based on something like "Winston Vapor: advise for a potential owner?" or something like that to attract attention of those who have cast/fished/owned one.
