The Epic 686 Ready to Wrap Rod Kit
The very best components available, all designed to fit together seamlessly. No Reaming, No Drilling, No Sanding - All Epic.
A total ass-kicker. The Epic 686 presents beautifully but packs a bad ass attitude. This blank totally changes what is possible with modern glass, it is longer, meaner and stronger than any of it's contemporaries. Perfect for tossing big flies, big fish and light saltwater work. Hang on, you're in for a wild ride.
Building a great custom fly rod is no mean feat, selecting the correct matching components can be an intimidating exercise alone. Then there’s those wraps, the cork and glue..
Our Epic Ready to Wrap Rod Kit makes life easy. The kit contains all the components, glues, rod finish and instructions you’ll need to build your own unique custom Epic fly rod.
The components in our Epic Ready to Wrap Rod Kit have all been specifically designed to work together. Our premium grade cork grip features a tapered bore to fit your chosen blank. Each cork grip is ported to receive our Epic reel seat perfectly.
