  1. Winston has done a nice job differentiating the Saltwater Air and Boron III+ Series. Like the 7, 8 and 9-weights, the Air Salt 10-weight uses the whole rod for casting, rather than just the tip. Trout anglers will find this rod easy to cast on the first try, but hard-core saltwater specialists may wish for more backbone. I have a high opinion of this rod because it is well designed for its purpose: a serious saltwater 10-weight that is fundamentally easy to cast. I found this rod highly tolerant of different line styles, which makes it more versatile than some saltwater rods.

  2. This 10-weight is cut from the same cloth as the AIR Salt 9 weight. It is an easy casting 10 weight to 60 feet and a rod that a trout fisherman can pick up and be dangerous. I cast the Rio Permit WF10F on this rod and it had a little trepidation carrying this line through the air. I also think that the SA Grand Slam is a better choice for this rod, providing for a little more load, a little sooner. Are you taking your first permit trip to Honduras or Belize? If so, this rod is a strong consideration. Pick up an SA Grand Slam, spend a little time on the casting lawn and get excited about looking for sickle tails sticking out of the water.

  3. I was very impressed with this rod. When I first strung it up I couldn’t get over the fact that it was so light in hand. To me this rod felt more like a 9wt. When it comes to casting, it’s an absolute treat. Living in trout country it is pretty rare that the 10wt comes out, so it can be difficult to adjust to heavier rods at times. That was not the case with this rod. I haven’t cast many 10wt rods that are this smooth and enjoyable to throw. With just a couple false casts you can dump out bullet-like loops up to 75 feet. This is going to be the perfect rod for someone that wants a physically light 10wt rod that they can cast all day.
