Winston Air 2 Fly Rod
As classy as a fly rod can get!
The next generation of all-around freshwater fly rods (3wt-6wt). These rods can do anything – present tiny dry flies to wary trout on flat water, cast a heavy streamer to the far bank in the wind, launch the entire line when you need it, and make quick, accurate close-range shots. From high stick nymphing, pounding the banks from the boat, or wet wading, the new AIR 2 is a pack rod, a travel rod, a beautiful rod, and an all-around rod. It’s the new Winston. When you can only bring one rod…the amazing new Boron AIR 2. You won’t want to leave home without it. Now is the time.
S-2000 Graphite - A unique build that sets Winston apart from the rest and a brand new taper, their Air 2 features an S-2000 graphite blank equipped with a Boron bottom section. S-2000 graphite is a new construction for Winston and is a high modulus carbon fiber material with a higher strain rate resin that works to generate efficient line speed and a quick recovery rate. To increase lift and ensure your cast is smooth yet provides power, Winston gives their Air 2 a Boron butt section. Freshly redesigned for the first time in years, the Air 2 has a new Boron configuration that combines with the S-2000 graphite to give excellent transfer of energy and accurate casting whether the target is ten or eighty feet away. And with a classic Winston green color, the Air 2 looks as good in hand as it feels.
Light Wire Hard Chrome ECO Slick Coating Shooting Guides - Winston’s Air 2 features a lightweight construction with each of its component being designed to be incredibly light without sacrificing power, and the guides are no exception. With light wire hard chrome guides equipped with an ECO slick coating and unique round helix geometry, this rod shoots line freely and easily while taking accuracy to new heights. Excelling in power, distance, accuracy, and a finessful presentation, these guides help extend your cast while also increasing precision on those upclose drifts.
Uplocking Nickel Silver with Burled Wood Insert - Creating an elegant appearance with the performance to back it up, Winston’s Air 2 features a clean burled wood insert with a smooth looking and functioning uplocking nickel construction. A design that seems right in place on a fast trout stream, the burled wood insert adds a touch of style while giving all of the security you need to put the hammer down on those large browns living in that secret undercut bank.
Graphite Rod Tube with Logo Rod Sock - With their Air 2 being such a high end piece of equipment, R.L. Winston keeps quality as a priority for storage just the same. This rod comes with a graphite rod tube that stands out from the rest as well as a Winston logo rod sock. Put these two storage devices together and you’ve got beautiful protection that will hold its own whether you’re being helicoptered into a remote pond or just driving to the stream
