Trouble, meet El Bandido!

The very best components available, all designed to fit together seamlessly. No Reaming, No Drilling, No Sanding - All Epic.

At 8' for a 10# the Epic Bandit is specialist tactical fly rod blank, the Bandit makes short work of large species in confined situations and is great for Kayak fishing. The rod of choice for US and European anglers fishing for Pike, Bass, Snook, Baby Tarpon and Musky.
Recommended line weight: #10

Length: 8'
Pieces: 4

No reaming, no drilling, no sanding. Too Easy.

Building a great custom fly rod is no mean feat, selecting the correct matching components can be an intimidating exercise alone. Then there’s those wraps, the cork and glue...

Our Epic Ready to Wrap Rod Kit makes life easy - we’ve done much of the hard work for you. The kit contains all the components, glues, rod finish and instructions you’ll need to build your own unique custom Epic fly rod.

The components in our Epic Ready to Wrap Rod Kit have all been specifically designed to work together. Each cork grip is ported to receive our Epic reel seats perfectly. Easily assembled step by step. 

FastGlass II
Each Epic FastGlass blank is produced from industry leading Zentron 8 micron Unidirectional S-2 Glass. This next generation fiber is specifically engineered for fly rod production and features 8 micron fibers developed and produced in the USA. These fibres are almost half the diameter of other unidirectional materials, resulting in a tighter, more precise and stronger material. 

SnakeBelly
Not sanded and not unsanded. Our SnakeBelly™ finish is produced by a unique radial production process. 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 very durable.

Sure Fit Ferule
Break a tip? we've got you covered.  This ferule system is so precise that parts interchange between models. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section to the manufacturer or outlet where you purchased from. Breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part.

Finished in metallic gold green

"I liken it to a big V8 diesel engine with low end torque that’s a pleasure to draw into."

Pro's speak
"It’s this feature of the Bandit that blew my mind when I began testing it: It will happily cast any line from a 6wt DT to a 12wt Rio OBS, with the sweet spot between 8wt and 10wt. Since it can load itself during casts with light lines, a 6wt line put over it seems to feel somewhat like casting a (heavy) 6wt CF rod. At the other end of the spectrum, the 12wt did bog it down somewhat, but the reserve of power in the big butt section will pull it through without complaint. I liken it to a big V8 diesel engine with low end torque that’s a pleasure to draw into."
