Winston Alpha+ 9' 10 Weight 1090
We love the Alpha+ series for its versaility and incredible capability of each model. This 10 weight is no exception. It features an extended fighting butt to add leverage either for presentation or casting. Like the other Alphas, it is light in hand and has a lot of feel. The power is ridiculous. This rods fells about like a 9 weight, however has the power of an 11 weight.
For lines, and for purpose, an angler can pick what they would like to use. Should you want to throw giant flies for an 11-12 weight? Go for it. Should you want to throw long headed saltwater lines for giant flats species? Go for it. The incredible action of the Alpha continues and this is one hell of a big game fly rod. Still light in hand and tough as nails.
Floating Lines - Rio Predator taper is a wonderful choice for hucking big flies. For extra power, go with the 11 however the 10 throws like a dream. The Intermediate version is also a wonderfully useful line for many big fly pursuits.
Sinking Lines - Something in the 400 or more grain range loads this rod and sends it full. We love the 400 grain Rio Striper line in particular. The 450 might be our favorite as it pretty much throws anything and attacks the depths nicely.
Made in Twin Bridges, Montana. 4 pieces.
