A Special Limited Edition Custom Epic.  

We produced one of these for a special prize draw for the Mission Fly Mag and have been repeatedly asked to offer more.

Based on our superbly good 590C or 690C carbon fiber (Graphite) fly rod fitted with a custom carbon fiber grip, special glass reel seat and custom "Black Mamba" inscription.

Featuring a custom black carbon fibre western grip and black glass reel seat insert. Extremely light and very durable. The carbon fibre grip is made from a special pre-preg and is light weight and very smooth in the hand.

  • Titanium strippers
  • Dark Nickel Snake Brand guides
  • Epic rod tube and rod sock
  • Back fiberglass reel seat insert
  • Custom inscribed "Black Mamba"

Available as either 5wt (590C) or 6wt (690C) - *limited numbers

*Order now in time for Christmas delivery (Our current build queue is around 5 weeks)

  • 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.
