From the "Holy Shit" department:
Here's out buddy Pak from Singapore. Yes, that's quite a bend he has there in his Epic 580...
If you've been following along with what's hot in the Fibreglass world you would have seen the astounding builds coming out of George Minculete's Tightloop Fly Rods workshop in Romania.
If you haven't, you need to sit up and pay attention up there in the back row! - George is one of a handful of select Epic Custom Rod Builders, great guy and wicked rod builder extraordinaire.
If you are wondering what the hell is going on in the photo's below (and you should be) here's a brief recap and sequence of events that seems to have led to this strange behaviour.
Obviously the result of many hours of extensive materials testing and in depth product development - we present - the most Epic of rod tubes.
Pete Emmel's hitting the straps with this latest build, this is the first we've seen in the new Olive. Love it!
"Basically three days start to finish. What a beautiful stick. This one may stay in my quiver"
Cameron Mortenson from The Fiberglass Manifesto gives the lowdown on his Epic 686.
"the Epic 686 is (f#$%'ing) magic in my hands. This fly rod is responsive, quick to load, and a powerhouse that lays out very long accurate casts with relative ease."
So, you want to build your own custom fly rod? See how Brad did it.
