Winston Passport Fly Rod Review

The Wintson Passport is Winston's (budget minded) fast action rod. It's received a lot of acclaim, not only for its casting ability, but for being out of stock. Everywhere. We've got them!

Re: Winston Boron III X vs. Sage One.


The B3x is definitely a less stiff rod, but also has a fairly different casting profile. I'm guessing that this is a streamer rod... you might consider going up to a 10' rod which will...
