The 580 is super versatile, super smooth and just slick as all hell. Our personal favourite, the 580 presents like a 4 but has the strength and lifting power of a big six. Divorce your lifeless graphite 6 & hook up with an Epic 580, you'll be glad you did.

First rod build! Super convenient and user friendly. Don't be intimidated to build a rod - it just takes some patience! The rod itself is fantastic and it's the only one I fish now. Great casting, delicate and powerful at the same time and plays fish really nicely. I love the action of these glass rods. Tight lines!
This is my 6th Epic build kit, so that alone should tell you what I think of these rods and the components. As usual, it's stellar stuff. (The addition of the winding check is nice, as I usually bought one on my own.). I love fishing with these, and the 580 is a fantastic dry-dropper rod and a lot of fun with our native cutts.
These kits are awsome. I've built and sold tons of fly rods. The 580 was the easiest one. A quality blank and great components. I wish I would have picked one up sooner. Great job people at swift.
I finally got the chance to fish the 5wt - 580 that I built from the kit. First of all, I've built a bunch of rods, but must say this is one great kit. Everything from packaging to the components and booklet are top notch! I can see why there are so many positive reviews! I fished at a private club some friends belong to and it was a great place to try it out for the first time. Casts beautifully and can really lay out some line when needed, but also capable of shorter roll casting to get the fly into see tighter spots. I really loved fishing this rod as did my buddies who tried it. I was fortunate enough to hook some larger trout and the 580 controlled them beautifully. Can't wait to take this rod on my Colorado trip this fall! Definitely a keeper and a rod worth having in the collection! Great kit if you are just want to build your own quality fly rod.

All Epic "Glass" rods are produced from industry leading 8 micron Unidirectional S-2 Glass. This next generation fiber is specifically engineered for fly rod production and features 8 micronfibers developed and produced in the USA. These fibres are almost half the diameter of other unidirectional materials, resulting in tighter, more precise and stronger fly rods.
SnakeBelly™ delivers the toughest exterior finish possible. After production, blanks are first painted and then clear coated. This two step process produces blanks that are incredibly scratch resistant and durable.
Break a tip? we've got you covered This ferule system is so precise that breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section.
Built Epic Tough
Epic glass rods are incredibly tough. Our S2 FastGlass II has a far higher strength-to-weight ratio than Carbon fibre (graphite) rods. Epic FastGlass rods can endure more acute and severe bends than the equivalent Carbon fibre or even regular S2 glass, tip sections are stronger and far less susceptible to breakages due to high-sticking and problematic rod angles when pulling against load.
