For Sale: Winston 9' (4) Weight BIIx rod. This rod just came back from Winston repair. I sent it in to have the cork grip replaced and they also replaced the reel seat. Reel seat is burled maple. Haven't fished the rod since coming back from Winston. Fished this rod only a few times prior to the cork grip replacement. As noted this rod is slightly used but in new like condition. This is a great casting (4) weight rod. Asking $450 TYD.

Please email me at rvought@ptd.net or PM me if interested in any of these items. Will consider offers. No Trades Please.

Thanks,
Ron

The cork grip had alot of filler in the holes and some of the filler was coming out leaving holes in the cork so I called Winston and they put a new cork grip on the rod. The issue was mainly cosmetic but I suppose long term it could have became an issue.

Yeah, you shouldn't have that sort of problem at Winston's prices. FWIW, they probably gave you a whole new butt section. Replacing cork grips is a PITA if you are tryinig to save the blank and seat.

Looks pretty goot in that picture.

Most of the manufactures were having issues getting good quality cork a few years ago. I assume they did replace the whole butt section. It's basically a new rod being sold at a used price.
