      Spooky

      I’ve used the 8” a few days now, caught a few steelheads on the Tongariro and I’m very impressed. Great streamer and nymphing rod, almost spooky in its responsiveness and mending capability! Certainly a rod with a lot of soul. I’m very happy.

      Epic 890C

      Bought this rod to start fishing salt water and don’t regret it. Love the quality of the workmanship and components. Very well sorted rod that feels light, smooth and has plenty of power. Will definitely be buying some of their other rods for the stable.

      8wt 890C

      I used this rod on bones and like it. Actually, I used my 6 wt. 690C kit rod that I made for trout fishing more on the small bones while wading in one area that we fished and stopped counting at 12 bones. I am new to saltwater fishing and need a lot of practice on the double haul.

      Saltwater flats dream

      Light, crisp, responsive, and powerful - this is the ideal saltwater flats rod. It's a weapon capable of delivering a fly in any flats fishing situation whether it be delicate and close or bombing into the distance - and it feels great connected to a bonefish running toward the horizon. Another excellent rod from the Epic team!

      You wont be disappointed

      Like everything these guys do the Epic 890C is flawless. Progressive, plenty of power and super accurate. This was my rod of choice on my recent Belize trip and soon became the favourite fo our guides as well. Keep up the great work Epic

       Features

      • 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.
        The 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.
