Here's a solid early WINSTON first generation GRAPHITE-BORON saltwater rod from the BL5 era where unlike their softer BL5 cousins, a little sum-thing XTRa was added in the form of increased BORON fiber to offer a powerful saltwater stick that can cast to and lift up the big bois. This 9' 10 weight 5-piece XTR is a cannon with the backbone to cast the heaviest of flies to those willing to grab em. Great tarpon, dorado, striper rod for fish in the 20-50 lb class range.
Stick it in a suitcase with the 5 piece configuration and know it will arrive with the bags. This rod is clean, without any markings to the blank, only slight soiling to the cork and literally no signs it has seen any time on the water. I've included some sunlight pictures to illuminate the stunning Winston green blank luminescence.
