The smooth operator. Incredibly smooth loading and unloading the 590C will help shape some of the nicest loops you've ever cast.
The Epic Action. Epic C series would best be described as Medium Fast in action. Epic C Series are light without sacrificing strength.
Light The 590 C blank weighs an astoundingly light 36 grams (1.2oz) 10% lighter than our previous model and lighter than equivalent blanks by Scott or Sage.
Tough Our use of 100% non woven fibre and Silica nano matrix technology makes for a very tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank.
Better Components Each hand crafted Epic carbon fibre fly rod boasts the very finest components available:
Silica nano matrix fly rod blank with internally reenforced ferule system
Sure-Fit™ ferrule system. Makes section replacements simple
Helical wound core construction - light while giving superior strength
SnakeBelly™ finish with super hard gloss coat to protect your rod
Stunning Japanese Silk thread wraps
Finest quality Portuguese cork grip
Titanium stripper guides - Corrosion proof
Premium quality snake guides from Snake brand USA - Highly corrosion resistant
Our original design flip top rod sock
We believe there is no better fly rod made.
Ross Animas Fly Reel
The 2019 Animas takes the time-proven features that made the original Animas a guide favorite and incorporates new machined features that bring it into the modern era of Ross.
A fully-redesigned frame and spool are highlights of the new Animas. The spool shows off the cutting-edge manufacturing techniques Ross Reels has developed, delivering a design that is incredibly strong and visually stunning. The Animas also re-joins the family by incorporating an ultra-light canvas phenolic handle which gets tackier when wet. A new trouble-free spool release yields zero-maintenance performance, allowing the Animas to be ready for any fresh or saltwater excursion.
The frame is accented by a machined silhouette of the Colorado mountains in Ross Reels’ backyard. Its uniquely ported design and structural profile are eye-catching industry firsts. The two-tone drag knob sports an updated aesthetic with a lower profile and increased grip. An improved composite drag system delivers more power in an established Ross design used and loved by more than 80,000 fly anglers the world over.

100% Carbon Construction. The carbon helix core boasts true 100% carbon construction. These blanks contain no scrim.
100% Uni-directional material - Non Woven. Super light-weight construction and superior strength. Non woven Uni-directional material is up to 40% stronger than traditional woven material commonly used by fly rod manufacturers. A non woven fiber can achieve 100% of its tensile and compressive loading. Unidirectional material affords super light weight construction and superior strength.
100% Carbon Helix Core A 100% helical core forms the basis for hoop strength and fibre support in the zero/longitudinal axis and does away with traditional scrim based construction.
Silica-nano technology. Super Low Resin Systems. Utilising materials with resin content up to 30% less than conventional materials, Epic C series blanks are lighter and stronger. Low resin materials help increase bending limits & overall response.
Multi Carbon Construction (Multi modulus). Using only the highest quality fabrics from USA, Japan and Korea, up to five different types of carbon are used in each blank. Each type is placed at various parts of the blank to optimize strength and weight. Ultra high modulus fibre boasts the highest tensile and compressive strength of any fibre in its class.
Internal High Strength Ferrule. A high strength internal ferrule is placed at each join to provide superior crush and split resistance.
Target Zero Fibre Alignment. Fibre alignment along the length of any blank is critical. Even the smallest deviation in fibre alignment from the axis of load will greatly reduce the strength of the blank.
