Default 14yr old Winston 2wt

Does anyone know about a 14yr old Winston 2wt fly rod?

How does it perform?
How well is it made?
How much do you think it's worth now?

Any information on this rod would be appreciated plse.

I have access to possibly buying one in the near future but know nothing about it.

Sorry...this should be in the fly rod section....maybe a mod can move it?

I'll give this a shot--

Yes, there are many posters on this forum that know a great deal about 14 year old Winston fly rods, 2 weights included.

It is impossible to know how it performs without knowing the model.

It was very well made.

It is impossible to know how much it is worth without knowing the model and its condition.

You can surely gain information about the rod, but you must let us know what model rod it is. Winston has multiple models of rods.

Welcome to the forum. In addition to the rob's suggestions, you might consider taking some photos of rod and in particular, the markings just above the cork. It's difficult if not impossible to provide much information beyond what has been shared without that.

Another suggestion would be to contact the folks at Winston, by the serial number, they should be able to give you an idea of production date, model, value, etc.

Welcome to the forum,

What is the asking price? as far as I know, any Winston under 200 is a take the deal rod. We'll wait to see what you are talking about.
