  1. This is a ten weight for the seasoned Permit fisherman looking to add another Winston to their tactical flats quiver. The rod requires precise timing and application of energy from the caster, but it delivers when you do. I cast the Rio Permit WF10F on this rod and it was decent, but there is a better line for the rod. I would throw a Rio Tarpon taper on it and believe it would be a spot on match for the taper and line speed capabilities. Line speed is the preeminent feature of this rod. A very light in the hand and gorgeously appointed fly rod, this 10-weight feels like an 8-weight while casting inside 50 feet.

  2. This rod felt very similar to the 9’ 9wt version. It doesn’t have the feel or castability of some other 10wt rods out there, but it’s definitely a solid stick. I had a difficult time adjusting to the heavier tip of the rod at first but found it not to be an issue as I got more line out. This rod has no issues whatsoever with casting tight loops at long distances. For me, I would have a tough time going with this rod over the 10wt Air Salt simply due to the fact that the Boron III Plus rods are heavier. This would make for a great Permit 10.

  3. The 10-weight casts very similar to the 9-weight: light in the hand, fast-loading in the tip and quite stiff through the lower 2/3 of the rod. This is a powerful 10-weight for anglers who prefer this classic saltwater style. Distance and line speed are greater than the Air Salt 10-weight, but a quick and precise casting stroke are required. I was surprised and impressed that this rod handles a wide range of 10-weight lines, including both the SA Tarpon Taper and Rio Permit Line, which have very different tapers.

  4. The Boron III+ 10-wt has similar attributes to the 9 wt. These rods have a more flexible feel to them vs. most other salt water rods. In the 10 wt. class, I prefer a faster action rod, though this could certainly be a sweet Permit stick.
