Limited Edition Trout Unlimited 50th Anniversary Winston BII-MX Rod
Winston’s newest fly rod series, the Boron II-MX, is the fastest rod the Twin Bridges, MT company has ever offered. The MX stands for maximum, as in maximum power, distance and fish fighting capabilities. This 9’, 4-piece, 5-weight rod is stiffer and faster than its Boron IIX counterpart and weighs in at a minuscule 3.8 ounces. This rod is unmistakably Winston with its classic emerald green blank, new nickel-aluminum double locking reel seat, hard chrome guides and premium half-Wells cork grip. To top it off, our friends at Winston embossed TU’s 50th anniversary logo on the end cap and inscribed the words “TU 50th Anniversary” in precise silver lettering on every rod. Celebrate 50 years of protecting and restoring America’s trout and salmon fisheries with this limited edition BII-MX.
