Winston GVX Gets “Fly Fish America” Editor’s Choice Award
R.L. Winston’s 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, green finish, and craftsmanship as the company’s 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 have a retail price of $495.
