Love my 4wt. 9 ft. BIIx! I don't know how they did it, but they are able to generate pretty fast line speeds without feeling stiff at all. It feels similar to my St. Croix Avid as far as action goes, but generates faster line speed, can handle big bugs and wind better.

I love it.

I have foul hooked one fish while nymphing, probably caught 25 fish or so nymphing with it so far. It is a new rod. I'm sure the foul hook was my fault...

They don't have the power a TCR or TCX have, but it's a Winston feel all the same. If you want more power (for what I wouldn't know) get a Loomis.
One more thing I have to add, the 6w is probably the best all around trout rod I've ever owned. At 2 7/8 oz. you're not going to find a lot of other rods in 5w's that are that light.
No offense taken... It was me. I loved the rod but I just couldn't make it work. Scott worked better so I kept the Scott and sold back the Winston...

If I won the lottery.... I would keep the Winston for those early morning or Late evening or Rains storm dry fly action times...
