Description of the R. L. Winston Boron IIx Two-Handed (Spey) Rod - Rods:
Boron IIx two-handed rods, made with our second-generation boron/graphite composite, are the lightest spey rods in the world and offer extraordinary power, responsiveness and accuracy. Boron IIx two-handed rods were created with the help of our technical advisor Andre Scholz, one of the world's top spey casters. All rods come with a copy of our educational DVD, "Introduction to Spey Casting with Andre Scholz."
11' - A light and very popular rod in the true Boron IIx action, this rod handles easily as a single-hand or two-hand rod for a wide variety of fishing applications. This rod rates in the range of 401-432 grains
12'6" - The ultimate light-line, summer steelhead rod. Think Deschutes, Grande Ronde, North Umpqua. It is configured for double-handed casting and is rated at 400-430 grains.
13'3" - Originally designed for summer steelhead, this rod has proven to be incredibly diverse: fishing dry lines and skaters, as well as 3"-long files on dredger sink tips. Rated in the range of 447-478 grains
13' - Designed for medium-sized salmon and steelhead rivers, this lightweight, accurate rod will appeal to anglers who prefer a 13' length. Rates at 493-524 grains.
14' - With the ability to handle a wide range of fishing conditions and casting styles, this 14' has gained a following for its unique combination of power and finesse. If you can only own one two-handed rod, this is it. Its range would be 524-555 grains.
15' - If you're after large salmon and steelhead in big water, this 15' spey rod is the call. Very powerful, but with the responsiveness for which the Boron IIx series is known. Its range would be 585-618 grains
