Serious rods for serious anglers and for serious fish. Featuring a full spectrum of saltwater rods for every possible fishing scenario. The Plus series also includes high-performance freshwater 5wt. and 6wt. rod models. The “Plus” stands for incredible line speed, extra power and design qualities needed to handle monster flies, the wind, sinking and oversized head lines and of course, big, big, fish.
Boron III Plus rods are lightweight, smooth casting and feature our new shooting guides, green reel seats and, of course, unmatched Winston quality and craftsmanship.
The 2+ is rated for 2 through 4 weight lines, weighs only 3.7 oz. without line, and measures 3” in diameter. Match up with your favorite lightweight fly rod and you’re ready to fish any small stream, lake, or favorite dry fly stretch of water. Fully CNC machined in Vista, CA with a proprietary Rulon/Stainless Steel stacked disk drag, the 2 Plus is available in 5 color options and Large arbor only.

The goal was to create a larger reel that bridged the gap between the 9 and 12 Plus models. Hatch also wanted to make sure it had an oversized handle for greater grip control when fighting those big silver critters.

The 11+ L/A reel is Darren's pick for CXI GT's.
