Epic 476 Packlight Ready to Wrap Fly Rod Kit 

4wt - Packlight Fiberglass back packing fly rod kit (5 piece)

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

Our famous 476 reconfigured as an ultra packable backpacking fly rod. The Epic multi piece Packlight fly rod is designed to pack into your favourite spot. Designed fish in tight confined creeks but still with the backbone and pulling power of a much larger rod - the 5 piece 476 Packlight is the deal.

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. Our premium grade cork grip features a tapered bore to fit your chosen blank. Each cork grip is ported to receive our Epic reel seat perfectly.

Recommended line weight: AFTMA #4 
Length: 7'6"
Pieces: 5

Each Kit contains:

  • Epic 476 5 piece Packlight blank
  • High quality translucent fiberglass rod tube
  • Premium hand sewn rod sock
  • Guide set (Snake brand Universal guides USA)
  • Glue kit (preloaded syringes, grip & tip epoxy, brushes, mixing cups & full instructions)
  • China-graph marking pencil
  • Rod stands
  • Comprehensive 42 page build book with step by step instructions
  • Stickers / Decals
  • *Japanese Silk threads. Each kit includes natural 212 silk (we include instructions on how to use this to make perfectly clear ghost wraps) and black thread for trims. These default threads can be substituted for other stock colors on request. View Stock Thread Colours

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 micron fibers 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.

Recommended line weight: AFTMA #4

Pieces: 5  
Total length: 2,265mm
ERN: (Unwrapped): 3.96
ELN: 4
Optimal Grain Window: 120 - 135 Grains
Effective Line Range: AFTMA 4 / 5
Action: Progressive / Mid Flex / Medium  
Taper: Fast
