*We are fortunate enough to receive many wonderfull reviews for our fly rods and they all mean a great deal to us. When a rod is reviewed by an angler & caster with real depth of experience it's something special.

"One word sums up my new 370 FastGlass, badass, if in fact that's a
word... The best way I can describe it is, "where tech meets tradition."
Never had I anticipated the arrival of a new fly rod more, and I currently
own two dozen premium rods and have had another few dozen move through my
personal inventory over the years. The rod exceeded all expectations and
in every way - action, tracking, dampening, aesthetics, components,
workmanship, packaging.

Clearly Epic has taken fiberglass rods to the next 
level

I've owned E-glass, S-glass, and now Unidirectional S-2 Glass. While all have their place, the Epic FastGlass is in a class all by itself as far as overall performance goes.
Not truly fast, but faster than my other glass, and in a good way. Casts
in tight, but can reach out. Roll-casts well. Haven't seen a weakness yet
and don't expect to. Clearly Epic has taken fiberglass rods to the next
level. Only problem is I now want more. Having limited my use of glass to
small stream fishing in the past, I am now wondering what the right rod
could do on my home river?"

I just love it. Great option for those who are not 100% sold on glass yet, and even better option for those who are. I’ve fly fished for roughly 40 years and spend about 100 days a year on the water. Epic brought me back to a time when fly rods were designed for fishing not casting. Can’t wait for spring so I can log some serious hours afield with this rod. Again, it exceeded all expectation and my standards are real high.

Fly Casting  - The Roll Cast. I can't over emphasise how important this cast is. Deceptively simple, the Roll Cast is the most useful and versatile cast there is - more so than the fundamental overhead cast that is so synonymous with single handed fly casting.

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.
