  1. The Boron III Plus 9’ 6-weight casts tight in close with a Rio Gold and struggled forming loops until you had about 25 feet of line out. I would fish a half size heavy line on this rod to bring it to life in close. With the Rio Gold WF6F and about 30 feet of line, the rod cast very well and threw nice parallel loops. Line speed is not extreme, but it is adequate, even and predictable. It doesn’t feel light in the hand or through the cast like the AIR rods, but I believe that has a lot to do with the taper and components of this rod. This rod reminded me of some of the more classic Boron series rods from the past. Choose this rod for a classic Winston feel, a very good nymphy dry dropper action and heft to turn big fish.

  2. This medium-fast 6-weight will meet the expectations of Winston fans who seek a rod for nymphing or light streamers. It casts intuitively up to about 60 feet, but line speed and stability are only fair. It’s flexes quite naturally, so it’s easier on the angler than some ultra-fast action 6-weight, but some anglers will seek a rod with more command for streamers and heavy nymphs. Long headed lines work best on this model, including the Rio Gold for dry flies and the SA Amplitude Infinity for nymphs and streamers.

  3. This rod had a nice amount of power in a 6 wt., but with a rather supple feel, which I find to be a desirable trait. This is a quality I have found to be present in the rods I like best in the Winston lineup. It had the ability to make those longer casts with good control and precision. I think this could make for a very good “all around” 6 wt. rod.

  4. My initial reaction to this rod was a pleasant one. I found it to be very easy-casting with lots of power and surprisingly good feel. I wouldn’t say that it’s my favorite 6wt in the medium-fast category, but it is certainly not to be overlooked. Just like the other rods in the Boron III Plus family, the 6wt feels a little heavier than it could be. I could see it being a bit of a workout casting all day into the wind. This rod pairs very nicely with a relatively standard weight forward line such as the Rio Gold.
