  • The Epic DH13 Carbon Fibre Two Handed Spey Rod Kit

    The Satisfaction of building your own Spey Rod

    Build a premium quality two handed Spey rod with our comprehensive "Ready to Wrap" two handed fly rod kit.

    3 Weights. One length. 6 Pieces

    After talking to Spey casters around the world a 13ft two hander was clearly the most versatile and useful length for most two handed casters. A standardized length across our range also makes line selection a comparatively easy task.

    Weights:
    Epic two handed blanks come in 3 different weights / power configurations:
    5-6 Trout Spey
    6-7 Large Trout & Steelhead
    7-8 Salmon & large Steelhead

    Recommended Grain Windows:
    5 / 6 Trout Spey: 340 - 420 grains. 
    6 / 7 Large Trout & Steelhead: 420 - 480 grains. 
    7 / 8 Salmon & large Steelhead: 470 - 530 grains. 

    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 ground ferrule system. Each male ferrule is hand ground to perfectly fit the female section of the blank. Female sections are all internally reinforced.

    Nano Tough

    Our use of Silica nano-resin makes for a very tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank.

    Material:Carbon Fibre (Graphite)

    Pieces:6
    Action:
    Progressive. Medium fast
    Length: 13ft all models
    Weight Built: Aprox 200g - 206g depending on model (7oz to 7.2oz)
    Fore grip length:  325mm (12.7 inches)
    Rear grip length: 125mm (4.9 inches)

    A HappyChristmas Gift

    So far I am in the process of building the rod. Unfortunately work has reared its ugly head and time is not something I have a lot of. My purchase experience was awesome. Everyone treated me great. The rod came with everything you need. and is a quality, class act product. I'll drop you a line when I finish it. And after I fish with it.

    DH13 Two Handed Spey Rod Kit

    When I went on a long trip, I bought it because it was easy to carry around. I like cool action and line control, too. I think it will be helpful for me to travel to Patagonia in February 2018

    Perfect - 4th Epic Fly Rod Kit

    My fourth Epic rod build, a DH1306, went pretty much the same as the first three. A kit arrived, I put the components together, exactly as per the included instruction manual, then wrapped the guides. No modification, no misfits, no headaches. Job done. Easy. The result? A rod as responsive as any I have ever cast. Well done, Swift people.

    Epic!

    As a beginner spey caster this rod has been awsome to built and use. I've used it so far on the Deschutes and North Umpqua river for steelhead as well as a little bit of trout spey on my families trip to the USA. I also cant wait to use it on the Tongariro when I get back home!

    DH13 7wt - A thing of beauty

    Let me start of by saying that iv had a little bit of experience building rods. I think it would be around 30-40 rods over about as many years. I'm no expert like the team at Swift but iv got a reasonable idea as to what I'm doing, when it comes to building a rod. I was a little daunted at building a 6 piece 13' rod as there are quite a few wraps to do on a rod like that. Well I shouldn't have worried. The blank was the straightest blank iv ever experienced with no perceivable backbone at all. Usually a blank has a very slight bend in it. Something that most fishers don't spot but a rod builder with a keen eye will spot. Well there was non what so ever in this blank. Truly laser straight. I tired and tried to find a backbone to the sections, but there was either very little or non, which makes building a rod a breeze. Iv never experience this in the 30+ rods iv built. Talk about top notch blanks!! As with other Swift kits iv built everything fitted like a glove and was super straight forward. Id recommend this kit to someone that has never built a rod before, it was that easy. IF your feeling daunted at building a rod like this, don't be. Dive in and grab one now. Carl has managed to produce a range of rods that are all casting machines. Not stiff lifeless rods, and defiantly not wobbly noodles. IF you haven't cast any of the Epic rods, then get one in your hand ASAP, you wont be disappointed! PS. I love the 7wt so much that I'm going to splash out and get the 6wt as well. There just such a lovely rod to cast, you have to own more than one!
