December 06, 2012 1 min read


Some of the worlds most talented and creative rod builders are about to have their way with a bunch of Epic S2 Glass blanks
With the help of Cameron Mortenson fromThe Fibreglass Manifestowe've enlisted three top glass builders from across the globe to do a freestyle build on one of our new Epic blanks.
Our Epic Builders are:
Matt Leiderman 
Leiderman Rods

Leiderman Rods on Facebook 

Callum Ross 
Indi River Rods
Australia

George Minculete 
TIghtloop Fly Rods
Romania
Each builder has the blank of their choice being shipped to them, in terms of build, they can do whatever they fancy. 
The completed rods will then be forwarded to Cameron at the Fibreglass Manifesto to be included in their rod loan program - Epic!
Sincere thanks to Cameron for organising this for us, and absolute gratitude to our Epic Rod Builders for agreeing to take part.
Can't wait to see what Matt, Callum and George come up with!



Epic Blanks racked up and ready to roll out to our Epic Builders


Salsa certainly seems to be flavour of the month!
