    Epic 590c

    I've been fishing my 590c for close to two seasons now and it's safe to say I'm well on my journey of getting to know her. I'm not a pro, nor a guide, however I do fish a hell of alot. It's my meditation/medication. My father said many moons ago "spend your money and spend it once". That however is a moot point as I'm more than one Epic rod deep and the 590c sits along side the 580 and a packlite 476 ;) You get what I'm saying though!! When you invest in an Epic rod you're getting the real deal. There's no room for "She'll be right" You end up with a beautiful, nay stunning build and the guest experience that goes with it. They're refined, refined again and what you receive is the sum total of that experience and when you look at the Swift crew that's ALOT of experience under one roof. They're all a bunch of OCD weirdos in the best possible way. I'm sure Carl never sleeps, Trev is nothing short of exacting and his eye for detail is astounding. Jeanie is wonderful and her customer service on point. Have I talked about the 590c much? Not really! You need to cast one, you need to look at the wraps, you need to deal with Jeanie and the team to get the full picture. It's an experience not just a product. These guys n gals love innovation and pushing boundaries. Looking forward to seeing what comes out of the studio next. Well done Swifters. 690c or a DH13 next?

    Epic 590 C

    First of all I must start with the service which was second to none. Any queries were promptly answered and was kept up to date with the rod building and posting process. The rod itself is of superb quality. All the components are off high grade and expertly put together. The rod casts with a lovely smooth action but can throw a lot of line when called upon. This is the lightest 590 rod I have ever cast, and believe me, I have cast the majority of top line rods out there. All in all a great rod combined with great service.

    Epic by name, epic by nature

    The 590c is absolutely world-class. Light, responsive, smooth, and crisp - this rod is a true pleasure to fish. The build quality is outstanding - it's readily apparent that the Swift Fly Fishing team accept nothing short of perfection. Well done by the team for producing an ideal 5-weight.

  • The smooth operator.
    Incredibly smooth loading and unloading the 590C will help shape some of the nicest loops you've ever cast.

    Studio Built. Handcrafted, One at a Time.
    Each Epic Custom is handcrafted specifically for you from start to finish here in our studio workshop - no detail is overlooked.

    When purchasing one of our carbon fibre rods you can be confident that you are investing in premium engineering, componentry and craftsmanship.

    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 - just better
    • Katana Rod Tube
    • cleaning cloth

    We believe there is no better fly rod made.

    • 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.
