The New Winston Alpha+ Fly Rods are vastly different than your typical Winston fly rod. The Winston Alpha+ is the fastest, stiffest, most powerful rod Winston has ever designed. The Alpha+ is specifically made to fight the biggest fish in your waters. Think big flies, windy conditions, large predators, and powerful long casts in any condtions. Alpha+ series rods range from a powerful 5wt for larger trout up to a 12wt to battle larger Tarpon, Giant Trevally, Roosterfish, Mahi-Mahi, Peacock Bass, and Golden Dorado. The Winston Alpha+ rods feature a wicked fast-action taper for aggressive rigs, including big flies, heavy lines, shooting heads, and sinking tips. The Winston Alpha+ will pick up the entire fly line with one back cast and make quick one shot placements precisely where intended.
The 5wt 9'0" is an aggressively stiff trout fly rod for any river, stream, or lake. The Alpha+ 590 fly rod will launch larger streamers, full sinking lines, and make longer power casts at 70-80ft with ease. This rod is perfect for experienced anglers seeking an ultra-fast, crisp rod to throw larger flies in windy conditions, and longer distances. The Winston Alpha+ is a game changer for both fresh and saltwater anglers and is unlike anything else in your fly rod arsenal.
Winston Alpha+ Fly Rods have a designated grain window for each model to help anglers sort through the wide offering of overweighted lines available on the market today. Simply match the fly line grain weight range to the appropriate Alpha+ rod model to suit your needs and fishing style. Winston Alpha+ Fly Rods have extra reinforcement throughout the blank for the ultimate lifting power, the ability to turn fish from cover, and support effortless all-day casting with big flies and heavy fly lines.
