Options:
  • Packlight - the super versatile 5 piece glass travel blank.

    Head for the hills, answer the call and pack in your favorite adventure stick.

    We've taken our amazing 476 blank and reconfigured it as a 5 piece travel rod, now small and compact enough to easily slip down the side of a backpack or rucksack.

    • Incredibly light. A mere 46 grams (1.62 ounces)

    • Incredibly convenient. Only 495 mm long (19.5 inches)

    • Incredibly tough. Made from fully unidirectional S2 Fastglass

    Colour: Salsa
    Recommended Line Weight: AFTMA #4 
    Length: 7'6"
    Pieces: 5

    FastGlass II
    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
    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.

    SureFit Ferule
    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.

    5pc 7 1/2’ 4wt glass

    Rod has been very nice it was my second Rod blank, it seems to cast to a dry fly very nice, which is the reason why I bought the rod blank, it’s going to be a very nice small stream rod.
