Fly Rod (Winston Performance Series): Designed for serious fly fishermen is Winston's Performance Series rods which include the popular Boron II and new Boron IIIX rods. These powerful yet lightweight rods are designed for both freshwater and saltwater applications and feature Boron and graphite composite blanks.

Abel's Performance Series rods are designed for serious fly fishermen


These rods are very responsive and powerful and never feel dead, instead they exhibit a very "lively" feel deliver speed and power with the smoothness that Winston is so famous for. The Boron IIIX rods are available in 3 to 10 weight configurations and retails from $795 to $870 dollars each.


The Winston Boron rod paired with a Abel Super Series Quick Change reel


Fly Reel (Abel Super Series Quick Change): Abel reels continue to be among the very best and deliver both refinement and performance, not to mention designs that would qualify as functional works of art. One area where Abel has fallen short in the past is in the spool change department, as many competing reels offer much easier and faster change-out designs. The new Abel Super Series Quick Change "changes" all that with a new mechanism and all anglers need to do is back off the drag and push in and rotate the center cap for a quick spool release. The Quick Change makes use of proven Abel features including a cork drag system, a double pawl, and Buna sealed micro-bearings. Available in 5/6, 7/8, and 9/10 models these reels retail for $625 to $875 each.
