Just bought a mint of these this summer for 325$ on craigslist. I can tell you its everything its cracked up to be. Staff of Moses indeed man. Its not some super limp stick that is slow though. Its pretty versatile, progressive and laser accurate. I have a RIO Gold on it now, though I want to put a lighter line on it. Hope you find one!

Good luck on your search, I'm sure one will show up, just might take awhile ? As much as I love fiberglass it's the one Winston that I couldn't see letting go, had mine since they came out. Incredibly versatile all around 4wt, not to soft, not to stiff, perfect !!! Truly is the "Staff of Moses". It likes most any WF line but I've used a DT for delicate work.

Everyone should be a WT guy if you trout fish ☺. I still have a few WT is need to get, primarily the 5wt and perhaps the TMF though I rarely fish for fish small enough to warrant the TMF and do have a trophy cup pre-im6 8ft 3wt that is a real joy. Too many rods to buy! Need a new Spey rod and want a b3x 6wt for bigger rivers.

I love my 10' 4wt WT. A great nymphing rod.

Thanks for the offer. I already have a 8.6 4wt BiiX and a WT and like them both. I actually really like the BiiX With that said I've found that the BiiT is the rod for me.
Hey man try search tempest once in a while. Also you could go to the main west coast state Craigslist sites and create an email alert. I watch ebay for these and others as well but usually only WT show up. Have you tried the b3 ls rod? Apparently they were supposed to replace b2t but I haven't cast or fished one.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm familiar with search tempest but how do you put an e-mail into main west coast Craigslist site? I've never cast the biiils, if I can't find a biiT I may end up doing that.

Sorry i wasn't real clear. Sad thing is search tempest isnt really super functional anymore. For West Coast, you have to go to each main west coast city and setup an alert. It would be a pain but probably only take an hour or so. Then you would have CL covered. I got my biit from a guy in NM. He just shipped it. I paypaled him. Super easy once we chatted on the phone.

Free bump here for someone looking for an all-time great rod.

"When I fish it, I feel like I am holding the Staff of Moses and it is sending me messages straight from God."
Thanks Seattlesetters, it was your review (back on the old Winston forum) is what inspired me to purchase one and have never regretted it, it is a very special rod.
