Packlight - the super versatile 5 piece glass travel blank.

Head for the hills, answer the call and pack in your favorite adventure stick.

We've taken our amazing 476 blank and reconfigured it as a 5 piece travel rod, now small and compact enough to easily slip down the side of a backpack or rucksack.

  • Incredibly light. A mere 46 grams (1.62 ounces)

  • Incredibly convenient. Only 495 mm long (19.5 inches)

  • Incredibly tough. Made from fully unidirectional S2 Fastglass

Looking for a shorter blank to fish in tight confined creeks but still want the backbone and pulling power of a much larger rod? - the 476 is the deal. The 476 boxes way above it's weight, easily horsing out fish in the 2 - 3 kg range (that's 3 to 6 lbs) - and yes, we've got plenty of pics to prove it.

The Epic™ 476 Packlite is crafted from Unidirectional S2 Glass, this material is stiffer and stronger than e-glass or standard s-glass. The 476 Packlight is a powerful and extremely accurate fly rod blank.

*The Packlight package includes our world famous glass rod tube and our matching flip-fit rod sock.

Includes Epic Packlight decals to suit your build
