We reckon these lines are a perfect match for all our Epic fly rods be they Glass or Carbon Fibre, but they will also perform just as well on medium action fly rods form just about any manufacturer.

I must like EPIC Glasslines as I now have three of them (DT4, DT5, WF6). Here is why I like them: First and foremost, they are made in the USA by Scientific Anglers, a company whose products I have used for over fifty years. The EPIC lines don’t have memory issues, the cast beautifully and lay out straight, and they shoot through the guides. Everything you want in a fly line. The only “negative” (and not a strong one) is that they could be more sensitive. As far as choosing a Weight Forward vs Double Taper, I would offer this: it appears that the taper of the WF and DT lines is the same. Therefore, if your casting is mostly in the under forty foot range, choose the DT. Why? Because a DT line is really two lines for the price of one. If you damage or wear out one end, just turn the line around and you have a new line. This can’t be done with a WF.
no welded loops on my DT5F
After emailing Carl to make sure the sale lines had end loops, I ordered a DT4F and a DT5F for my Epic rods. He assured me that they did. I just received them and the DT5F had no loops. This is useless to me as I used furled leaders and I am not going to nail knot a piece of mono to the line so I can attach my leader.
DT - Glasslines
The Glasslines are fantastic. they match Epic fiberglass rods perfectly and are true to weight. The double taper lines are very easy to roll cast and present the dry fly efficiently.
The line works very good with my Epic 476 and also with my Loop S1. The coating of the line is superb and shooting line is a pleasure. I had a successfully grayling fishing with it this autumn. Good work!
I purchased the 5wt DT line for a Redington Classic Trout rod with moderate action. As an absolute beginner I was cautious of moving from a WF to DT line, especially with all the conflicting info out there on the net. Your article on DT vs WF lines was a no-BS article that made me try the DT for small streams where I roll cast as much or more than I overhead cast. My roll casting accuracy and distance has improved dramatically but surprisingly so has my overhead casting. I think it's because I have greater control of the line over short delicate casts (less than 30') in pocket water as opposed to using a WF line suited for 30' plus casts that I rarely need to do. The price was also spot on compared to the myriad of lines out there that would make anyone think they're being developed for NASAs next mission to find trout on Mars. Your Glassline DT was spot on. I'll be back for more.
