"It is quite possibly one of the best 6wts on the market, glass, graph, or grass."

November 19, 2013 1 min read

"I will only touch on this for a second because everyone keeps hearing how phenomenal the 686 is. This is a phenomenal blank. The beauty is in the fact that the rod can lay out ten feet of line with the delicacy of a full flex cane, but when called upon fire 95' of line into a stiff breeze. It does all of this with a great deal of feel and composure that most rods will never achieve. It is quite possibly one of the best 6wts on the mark glass, graph, or grass."

"Making fly fishing your business means you get to see the best and worst of it, you also get to spend time with many different & diverse characters from all over the globe. Most good, some not so good, and a few that are truly talented, devoted & sincere people. 
Australia's Brian Henderson would be the one of most talented fly casters & teachers I've had the privilege of meeting. Brain is the consummate professional."

"They seem to be bullet Proof" - An Epic Fly Rod Review From Peter Hayes

August 27, 2013 5 min read

Epic 580 Fiberglass Fly Rod ReviewThe Epic Rods are not heavy in the hand. They are very robust and I doubt you could possibly break one.  They have a beautiful feel and give meaningful feedback to your brain through your casting hand. I think you will cast them more accurately than a stiffer graphite rod. They cast silky loops a very long way if you need to. They fight fish with more finesse and feeling something like my Taransky cane rod does.   It is kinder to the fish this way. The cushioning in these S2 glass rods will loose you less fish.

Epic Fiberglass fly rod blank review from Peter Emmel of Renaissance Rods USA

Custom Fiberglass Fly Rod blank"Why does “Renaissance Rods” opt to build on “Epic” glass? Four words: Selection, Strength, Accuracy & Quality.

When I was first approached by Carl about trying the new “Epic” fiberglass blanks, I was skeptical. Why would Carl want a small shop like mine to try out their blanks? After looking at their web site and exchanging several e-mails, I jumped at the opportunity to give them a go. Haven’t looked back since.
