    dont buy a winston either. at least 2nd hand, or new, if you care about resale value. they are charging over 250 to fix defective cork grips for a second owner. glue voids, or miss drilled rings have been common recently. this problem i have seen on many of my clients rods lately. most casual anglers wouldn't recognize it, as its not a visible defect, and on about half of them would only be noticeable under power during the cast, or putting the wood to a fish. 2 things many anglers never do. i havent seen any problem on older, pre- B2x rods, but even a brand new b3x i cast had the same issue. ironically, i havent seen this on their imports. imo, winston quality has really gone downhill, and with with their wtty issues, i wont be buying another, new or used, for myself. however you feel about the lifetime wtty issue for 2nd owners, when the competition does it so much better, eventually resale value will suffer, and that cant be good for new rod sales.
