    Revised generation two nano-technology.
    Epic C series are a state of the art fly rod blank. The most sophisticated composite materials and production processes are used in their construction. Proprietary nano-resins, full Helical construction, multi modulus, and unidirectional carbon fibre - We believe this is the most sophisticated fly rod blank available

    Ground ferrule system
    In addition to the industry leading technology used in each of our blanks, Epic carbon fibre fly rod blanks feature our proprietary SureFit™ ground ferrule system. Each male ferrule is hand ground to perfectly fit the female section of the blank. Female sections are all internally reinforced. Sections are so precise they can be swopped out in case of breakages.

    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.

    Carbon Helix.

    The 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-resin. 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. All Epic blanks are designed and produced to ensure all fiber is aligned as near perfect as can be with the load

    Two pack Marine Grade Paint system.

    Epic C series blanks are finished with a clear marine grade two pack paint system for extra protection and toughness.

      This is my second Epic build. I love the no fuss no drama of receiving everything you need in the kit. Building the rod is pretty straight forward if you take your time. The finished product is great. Currently I'm fishing it with OPST laser line, 275g Commando Head and 96g bucket tip and bead head flies. Casts like a gem and plays the 3 - 4lb trout I have caught on it flawlessly. I'm looking forward to summer, a Scandi line and soft hackles. This rod is definitely a keeper.

      DH11 Kit

      WOW!! Awesome kit! So I built this rod in one day its probably my 10th rod in as many years. I did the ghost wraps on the guides and black for accents and ferrules. I have to say the kit made it very simple and the results were great. I did build the rod using the Epic book, box, and instructions even though I have other equipment. I did have to ream the cork a little to get a proper fitment but I have reamers so no big deal maybe 10 minutes to make adjustments. The rod on the water is super light and powerful, I ran several combinations as was pleased with each. 1. Rio trout max 275, 24 lb Lazer line, 12’ OPST 96 grain riffle tip, 4’ 10lb leader 2. OPST 300grain, 24lb Lazer line, 12’ 96grain OPST riffle tip, 4’ 10lb test leader 3.Skagit scout 330, 24lb Lazer line, 12” 96 grain OPST bucket tip Combination 1: was absolutely a blast and probably the funnest for me a quick powerful tip cast. Combination 2: worked great as well and pulled a little more into the back bone but the distance increased. Combination 3: I thought would be an overload for the rod... ugh no!! A little more critical on technique but blasted line out against a pretty substantial wind and felt great doing it. All in all I will be building another DH11 kit for a friend and I am absolutely pleased with the purchase including the build. This rod is fun to fish, super lightweight, effortless to cast and just plain fun. The rod seems to be very sensitive I could feel every vibration/ pulse on the swing. When fishing i hooked some 16"-18” red band trout on the Deschutes River the tip had a very nice feel and the rod had a great bend to it. For a rod so light in the hand the power is incredible. I will be fishing it for 6-8 lb steelhead this fall!! I would say buy one and try it! I was nervous spending that kind of money on a new product with out any reviews but I am glad I did.

    "This is my 4th Epic build and things worked out great! I expect this rod will tame a few mako sharks this Summer. "
