Introducing the NEW BORON III X. We have improved the greatest all-around rod series ever made. For 2016, we have upgraded the Boron III X rods incorporating our new friction-free ‘Shooting Guides” to take the world’s best performing fly rods and make them even better. These rods now shoot line effortlessly, allowing you to generate even more line speed without compromising the smooth feel of the rod. Featuring advanced Boron III materials and technology, these incredibly lightweight, powerful, fast action rods have an even broader casting range – the widest casting range of any series we make. The added energy of Boron allows the angler to effortlessly control the line speed by speeding up or slowing down the casting stroke while maintaining pinpoint accuracy. This makes them ideal all-around rods for the vast majority of situations an angler may encounter, whether it’s making highly accurate, long distance casts or delicate, precise presentations up close.

Boron is a chemical element which can be processed into lightweight fine diameter tungsten wires with incredible strength. This is a very different and much stronger material than graphite. Its amazing strength to weight ratio has been utilized for years in the aerospace and aviation industries where lightness and strength are BOTH extremely important. We work with the same suppliers to the aerospace industry to source our Boron composites so the advanced, high tech properties of Boron can be uniquely applied in our fly rod designs. We are a true leader in fly rod design utilizing these materials. In testing the properties of Boron composites, this material is stronger than steel, yet lighter than aluminum. Simply put, we believe there is no better material than Boron fiber to design smooth casting fly rods with high comprehensive strength and extraordinary lightness.
