RL Winston Microspey Air 2
LIGHTWEIGHT PRECISION, EFFORTLESS PRESENTATION
Incorporating the award-winning AIR 2 material for overall lighter weight, faster recovery, better connection, and sweeter feel, the Microspey Air 2 provides extraordinary feedback through the cast and swing. Anglers will rejoice at its trout-centric performance when adding movement to swung flies,increased line control, and unrivaled feel when fighting trout-sized fish.
Featuring tighter grain windows, the Microspey AIR 2 takes the guess work out of Spey line selection and aligns with all industry-leading trout Spey lines in Skagit, Scandi, and Traditional styles.
The newly designed, ultra-thin diameter Spey grip provides instant feedback through the casting stroke, resulting in fewer blown anchors, and more time shooting casts across the river. The new bottom grip is longer and provides anglers infinite ways to grip and control Spey casts, while providing a slimmer profile compared to full size Spey grips.
Finally, the Microspey AIR 2 features a new and beautiful burled maple reel seat, produced exclusively for Winston. The new reel seat utilizes double downlocking nickel silver rings and componentry for a timeless aesthetic.
Microspey AIR 2 rods are available in three unique sizes for a variety of trout water. All rods come with a logo rod sock and a graphite rod tube.

RL Winston Microspey Air 2 SPECS:
With lighter overall blank weight and graphite recovery, we’re able to achieve the ultimate two-hand trout performance. From Snap T’s, Touch and Go, to Snake-rolls, unlock unmatched feel to present flies with any two-handed casting technique. We’ve lengthened our bottom handle for better grip across a wider variety of casting techniques.
Trout-centric componentry is used thoughtfully in the new Microspey AIR 2. From our new and beautifully figured maple reel seat, downlocking nickel silver componentry with double lock rings, and newly designed Flor grade Microspey grip, our craftsmanship remains second to none.
Utilizing all-new Microspey tapers and design, we’ve achieved unbeatable presentation as the rods still provide unbelievable feel, yet have a crisper snap back when making the forward cast. Regardless if anglers cast heavier Skagit heads and sink tips, or swing Scandi heads with lighter leaders, the Microspey AIR 2 does it all.
RL Winston MicroSpey Air 2 Model Breakdown:
MICROSPEY AIR 2 — 10’9” 2WT.
The 2wt is our shortest model that is a sweet Scandi caster, yet is more than capable of launching heavier Skagit heads and sinking tips. This is a perfect small-river rod, or a bigger river stick when skating caddis, or presenting soft hackles. We like a 210 grain Skagit or a 180 grain Scandi. Add 8 - 10’ sinking or poly leaders that ring in the 80 grain range.
MICROSPEY AIR 2 — 11’3” 4WT.
Built with extra-power for bigger casts and flies, the 11’3” 4wt is the perfect choice for big water fishing. This powerful rod is ready for aggressive Skagit heads, yet will handle longer lines utilizing touch-and-go techniques for ultra-smooth performance. A 300 grain Skagit or 275 Scandi, paired with 10’-12’ tips, are a sweet match for this amazing rod.
MICROSPEY AIR 2 — 11’ 3WT.
The do-it-all member of the family. From flashy sculpins on the Missouri, to swinging tandem soft hackles of the West Branch of the Delaware, this 3wt is up for the task. Capable of both long and short casts, it also pairs well as a great indicator rod for stillwater applications. Line it with a 240 grain Skagit, or a 210 grain Scandi with
10’ of T-10 for sink tips
