Default Re: R.L. Winston Thread

I was looking to upgrade from my Redington Redfly 5/680 and came across a Winston Passport 590 fairly cheap. Reviews I read seemed like it was a good deal though I couldn't cast it prior to purchase. A friend lent me a BIIIX 590 to try. I really liked that rod. Looking for some others reviews and comparisons even though it's a moot point at this time since it'll arrive Wednesday.

I did try Redington's Classic Trout and Hydrogen in 590 but liked the Winston better and the Passport was cheaper than the Hydrogen. Hoping it'll be similar to the B3X. To paraphrase Jeremiah Johnson - "it's only a Passport but its a Winston, couldn't do no better" or something like that.
