  1. This is an outstanding 8 weight, right up there with the best rods in this respective line weight and length. You can tip-toe this rod and make easy, accurate and delicate casts, and you can flat out stand on this thing and dump the fly line. I really enjoyed casting this rod, smooth, stable loops, great control over line speed and the “fun factor” while casting left a wonderful impression. Fish it with a Rio Bonefish or SA Bonefish taper. The rod didn’t make me think it was a sink tip lifter, but it certainly did make me want to take it to the flats. This is a top five 9’ 8-weight flats rod.

  2. This is one of the best 8-weights I’ve ever cast. Although heavier than a Scott Meridian and less powerful than a Sage Salt HD, this rod does the work automatically in the ideal range: 30-70 feet. Paired with an SA Bonefish taper, the casting rhythm is intuitive and loop shape dominating. It is perfectly paired with this fly line. Almost anyone would pick up the rod and make a great cast on first effort. Lightness is relative to the effort required to get the fly where it belongs. This is one of the easiest casting saltwater 8-weights on the market. The action of the B III+ 8-weight is unique from the #9 and #10 in the series. This model flexes more deeply, offering great command with the middle part of the rod. The 9 and 10-weights are much stiffer through the middle, casting purely off the tip.

  3. The 8 wt. in this lineup was a real stand out. This rod had a great amount of power and ability to dump line, yet feel in hand was almost like a lighter weight rod. Just such a nice, smooth feel to this 8 wt., which could be referred to as the “Winston feel.” This was the rod that all of us agreed was special. Fish it!
