The Epic 690C is an extremely versatile responsive blank designed for dry fly, streamer and nymph fishing for trout of all sizes.
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.
In addition to the industry leading technology used in each of our blanks, Epic carbon fibre fly rod blanks feature our proprietary ground ferrule system. Each male ferrule is hand ground to perfectly fit the female section of the blank. Female sections are all internally reinforced.
Benefits of our ground ferrule system:
The 690 C blank weighs an astoundingly light 39 grams (1.3oz) 10% lighter than our previous model and lighter than equivalent blanks by Scott or Sage.
Our use of Silica nano-resin makes for a very tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank.
Epic C (Carbon) series fly rod blanks are high performance fishing tools. The lockup point develops in the top third of the blank, and although recovery rates are fast, the Epic C series would best be described as Mid Flex (Orvis) or Medium fast (Sage). They are light without sacrificing strength (lighter than the equivalent Sage one).

Quality kit, blank is light and crisp, components excellent, rod tube beautiful. Bodged a rod dryer from a bbq rotisserie. Ghost wraps look good on this blank, harder to get black wraps perfect but the good ones are good. My second kit, the first was functional but full of mistakes, this one much tidier with smaller mistakes. Fishes very nicely, excited to take it adventuring.
So far I've made up 8 Epic kits, some for me and some for mates. Take you time with the build and you will have an exceptional fly rod. The 6wt carbon fibre rod is no different. It has a bit more life than many other carbon fibre rods I've used and is a pleasure to cast. A rod for those days when the wind is making life difficult and your favourite glass rod has to stay in the car.
The kit is up to the usual Epic standards, which is to say that it's very, very excellent. All of the components are top-notch, and I can't wait to finish the build and start fishing. This is my 5th kit from Epic, so I'm clearly a happy customer. If I could find a justification for more rods, I'd definitely buy another.
I have yet to build the rod, but my first impressions leave me feeling this will be fun! The components are all of high quality and neatly packaged. I was also impressed by the ease of purchase and the quick delivery. I can highly recommend this product for anyone, novice or expert alike.
