Meet the very lucky Epic 888

Our mighty 888 was designed specifically for chasing Bonefish but is just at home wrangling large freshwater species too. Given there’s not a flat where the wind doesn’t blow we’ve given the 888 an extra powerful butt section, strong tip and fast recovery rate to help punch a line out into those skinny water breezes.

Built Epic Tough.
Built using fully unidirectional S2 Glass Fibre the 888 is not only extremely light, it's built to take a pounding. Glass fibre is many times tougher and more resilient than the equivalent blank in Carbon Fibre.

Extra Lucky
In Chinese tradition, certain numbers are believed to be auspicious and possess special powers. The number 8 signifies prosperity and wealth and is viewed as such an auspicious number that a number with several eights is considered very lucky indeed. We think the 888 is extra lucky because, like us, it was made in New Zealand.

Finished in Gun Metal Grey
