    Default Re: Winston B2MX versus Winston GVX 6 wt

    Winston even calls the BIIx fast. Having several I would call them anything but fast. They recover quickly but being fast to me means a 5 weight will behave more like a 6 or 7 weight.
    Back to the BIIMx, I have that rod also but again wouldn't call it fast in the traditional sense. It has a bit more power but still has that Winston feel. Combine the little bit of extra 'oomph' with the fact it's a 6 weight and a fine streamer and nymphing rod it is as long as you keep the streamer sizes within the ranges that 6 weights typically handle. The beauty is that in a pinch you can use it for tossing dries too.

    Now all I can hope is that having an early BIImX, they didn't change the dog-gone action later in the run and that they are now indeed extremely fast!

    Thank you all for the responses. I have been doing lots of research and I think what I may do is purchase the GVX 6wt or if I can swing it the BiiiX 6wt.
