  1. A chip off the same block, the Alpha+ 9-weight casts with range, power and line speed from 20’ to over 90’. Sweet throughout its range, this rod may offer the greatest “Winston feel” of any in the series. I found this model to be somewhat sensitive to fly line pairing. A Rio Flats Pro WF9F is a little too heavy, causing the rod to bounce in the tip and waiver in accuracy. I loved it with the SA Bonefish and Rio Direct Core Bonefish lines. A Rio Permit taper loads the rod deeper and reduces line speed, but fundamentally casts well for the angler seeking more control with heavy or wind resistant flies. This is a versatile 9-weight with plenty of guts to play in the wind and put the hammer down on heavy fish. Striper anglers will love the Alpha+ 9-wt for all day casting without fatigue.
