From The Winston Blog

The R.L. Winston Rod Co. is proud to announce that the Winston GVX rod series has received an Editor’s Choice Award in Fly Fish America’s 2012 Gear Guide as one of the “best-of-the-best” in new fly fishing gear.

The GVX is Winston’s new series of fast-action all-graphite rods.  Designed and produced in Twin Bridges, Montana, they feature the same fast-action tapers, celebrated green finish, craftsmanship and quality as our high performance Boron rods.  Fly Fish America tested both the 5 and 8-wt extensively and concluded, “Both were powerful, smooth and fast-action designs that were an absolute delight to fish.”

  • G = Graphite; V= Versatile; X = Fast-Action
  • 4-piece rod series, 3-weight thru 8-weight
  • Nickel Silver reel seat w/ wood insert on 3- 6wt.
  • 8-weight features TiCH Anodized Aluminum reel seat w/ cork fighting butt

GVX rods continue the long tradition of Winston “all-graphite” premium rods.  With a retail price of $495, they are designed to be the very finest graphite rods you can own at the best price.  Made in the USA.
