    Epic 480 Ready to wrap kit

    I received this kit for Christmas, although Santa go some very clear directions. This is the second rod I have built. I chose the olive with dark olive silk. I took my time and knew from my pevious build you get no second chances with the epoxy finish on the wraps. I am pleased with the finish on the rod and complimets from friends. The kit made the job so much easier, the components are top grade; the cork on the grip is flawless and the real seat centres the reel so much better the a round seat. The step by step guide is clear and easy to follow, as they say if you can tie a decent fly you can build a rod. I finished the rod on New Years Eve and managed to get out for a few hours today on a spring creek close to home; I built the 480 with this creek in mind. At times you are hemmed in by bank and trees and roll and spey casts are the order of the day. You have to drop your fly hard up against the opposit bank and under vegetation on this stream. The fish aren't big here, not by NZ standards anyway, but its fun fishing. I got 2 on a lightly weighted soft hackle, 1 on a wee wet and 1 on a dry, then a thunderstorm arrived and I went home. The 480 is made for this kind of fishing, I am blown away with its' lightness and what a responsive and accurate casting tool it is, it mends beautifully and you can feel delicate takes, tugs and head shakes from 25 centimeter fish. Thanks Epic for a great product and great service.

    Shipping

    The rod was a gift and was delivered quickly to the joy of the receiver. Was a little bummed they ran out 4wt line. As well the receiver of the gift had to pay to have it delivered or imported on top of what I paid which negated the discount in the end. Overall a great gift but just some shipping issues.

    The start of a new addiction

    This is the first rod I have built - but it certainly wont be the last. I have been really impressed with the quality of this product - everything that is in the box (and the box itself) is top-shelf. The instruction manual tells you literally everything you need to know, and I was surprised at just how easy it was to end up with (at least in my eyes) a rod that looks as good as something you would buy compete. And in an ever increasing world of poor customer service it is good to see that there are some companies that still take pride in offering good service.

    100% satisfied!!

    Let me just say that I was pleasantly surprised and blown away. I had talked about getting a high quality rod for a LONG time with my fishing buddy, preferably something custom. I knew others who made their own but it wasn't really something I considered given my lack of experience. So, my friend surprised me with this kit as a gift. Let me just say it was FAR easier than I imagined and I LOVE the rod. The instructions were very simple and easy to follow, and this is coming from a guy who hates following instructions. Although I was a little intimidated at first, I was able to have it completely ready in a matter of days. And it is a beauty! It's a fantastic rod and I am 100% satisfied with it. It's strong, and you can cast anything with it. My friend was glad to hear it too. He had read about the kit online and decided to get one for me as a test. Having heard my experience and seeing the final product, he's getting his own. I'm thinking of picking up some for friends. Thanks! -Justin Bledsoe www.elkmountaintents.com

    Can't wait for Christmas!

    I did take a peek and this is one gorgeous well put together kit. The colors are that fantastic hue only a fiberglass rod can give. This is going to be a great rod on the water.

    Truly Epic
    "Since the first order i felt that Swift is a company that really cares about the customers. I have just finished building the 888 and it was really fun. Everything was just as expected. Top notch. Now i'm waiting for my other kit to arrive! "
    Build your own fly rod
    "As this was my first attempt at building a fly rod I was worried that I would end up with nothing but a sticky pile of carbon fibre and tangled thread. However, by following the step by step instructions in the booklet I was feeling like a pro in no time. Everything in the kit is organised to make it as simple as possible and the instructions are super easy to follow with photos of each step. My rod turned out great (in my eyes anyway) and I would highly recommend the 'ready to wrap kits' to anyone. I look forward to the next one." - Gareth T
    5 star review for epic rod building kit

    "This is my fifth Epic build. As before all the components are excellent, the finished rod is nicely balanced and rod casts a five weight line beautifully.
    These rods fish well and are amazingly tough." - Daniel L
