R.L. Winston Rod Co.'s third generation of Boron rods, the Boron IIIx series, are some of its finest to date. The Boron IIIx uses a lighter, higher-modulus boron-graphite composite in the construction. This makes the rods lightweight and gives them a faster action and a more responsive feel. Don't let the weight and responsiveness fool you, though - these rods are still powerful and smooth. Anglers can punch long casts into the wind or just as easily make gentle presentations up close. Rods come in four-piece models that are available in 3- to 10-weight and include an ultra-lightweight graphite rod tube. MSRP starts at $755. www.winstonrods.com
