    Looking at a Winston BIIX 14' #8-9 line. Anyone out there fish with this stick? Would love to hear about it, thanks.

    A friend had one. FEATHERLIGHT rod [loved that part] quite powerfull. Kind of a short'ish' lower grip [on the avereage] if your 'grip' picky like some guys here ;) He only ever fished heads on it, 600 gr Skagit & DDC 10/11 cropped pretty hard. Kind of a quick tip, more so than a LeCie. I could get along fine with one.

    One of those "blue lines" in the WA, MT,
    Get an ugly stick! :clown: I've cast a few Winston's and even been to the factory in Twin Bridges, but was playing w/ the boo rods out there...

    Anyway, you should get one, so I can borrow it and play with it! :cool:

    You should get that rod! It will be the lightest, fastest action rod you will ever find. Get a L. Lightspeed too! That combo is sick, that's what I have.
