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
