In very good condition as it has been very well looked after, nicely shaped cork handle, alloy reel seat, optional screw-in fighting butt end, fuji butt rings and heavy duty snake rings, this rod is proving to be another achievement in Winston’s long history. Lighter, stronger, and brimming with the soul that creates loyal Winston anglers for life, Winston have raised the bar for top-of-the-range rods. The graphite composite creates a balanced responsiveness: quick and easy to load at short distances, but providing reserve strength for distance casting, rapid line speed, and fish lifting power. Top-of-the-line performance isn’t all you get when casting this rod, however. The Winston name is synonymous with fine craftsmanship. Splendid aesthetics, world-class materials, and years of design experience enhance the fishability of the XDLT.
