Finally, after a year saving, I bought a new Winston Boron III-SX 9ft 6wt! Definitely worth it!

Default Re: Finally!!!!!!!!

It is a good day.

I remember how I felt when I finally got my Winston, a 2-piece downlocking 8'6" 5 wt WT. Tom McGuane called it "the five-weight trout rod against which all others are measured." Since then I have been lucky enough to acquire an 8' 4wt Tom Morgan Favorite as well. The great thing is, some of that feeling still comes back every time I open the tube.

Careful man, one rarely stops at one Winston! I speak from experience. The joy you felt when it arrived will pale in comparison to when you get it on the water. Congrats!
