Default Winston's relaxed action rods ?

What is the general consensus as to which Winston rod series is the slowest action ?

Thank you

No doubt. I have a 2-piece 8'6" in a four and it is just a delight to cast.

I fish my Winston 8 ft. 2 piece (tmf) on the smaller streams and love it. I wish I would have gone with slower action rods from the start. More my speed.

I took a FF class today and the demo rods we used to practice were Winston Rods, 5wt 8'6" Wulfe signature series believe, a very nice rod. I liked it alot. Felt very comfortable for my motion and timing. God I hate it when that happens.

Winston Stalkers or other Winston glass are slower than any graphite they have ever made. If you can find one, you are going to pay dearly.
