Fiberglass Fly Rod Review, the Epic 580. Scientific Anglers take an Epic for a blast

January 11, 2014 1 min read

We designed a blank, sent it to George Minculete, George made a rod, Sent it to Cameron Mortenson, Cameron sent it to Scientific Anglers, Scientific anglers gave it the double thumbs up - it's the circle of life man.

But here's the really interesting bit. The Scientific Anglers Expert Distance line is the line I most often use for my casting - it was also the line I used to make "Casts that Catch Fish"

We used that same line as a "baseline" line to develop the entire Epic Range.  Nice to see that born out out in the SA review!

Monofilament vs fluorocarbon.

I believe it’s Lefty that is credited with saying “There’s more bullshit in fly fishing than in a Texas cattle yard” (excuse the French) A phrase that is no more apt than when citing the 'Fluoro vs Mono' discussion.
