    The Epic™ 476 is produced from industry leading Zentron 8 micron Unidirectional S-2 Glass. This next generationfiber is specifically engineered for fly rod production and features 8 micronfibers developed and produced in the USA. These fibres are almost half the diameter of other unidirectional materials, resulting in a tighter, more precise and stronger material.

      One epic Epic!

      This is my first time building a fly rod, so while I have a lot of experience USING one, never tried my hand at building one. I was amazed at how thorough the entire process was, guided by a great instruction manual and absolutely top notch materials. I picked the 4wt rod, wanting to expand my set of fly rods toward the lighter end. The build went smoothly and the end result was a very nice rod. I put it to the test last Monday, trying it out on the Rose River for rainbows. On the third cast, I had a 16" rainbow. The rod performed even better than I hoped, with plenty of backbone to handle this really strong trout. If I can figure how to include pictures, I'll edit this review and publish some pictures of these fish and a nicely bent rod with a big rainbow on the other end! Hal

      Perfect Glass

      This is my 3rd ready to wrap kit. So easy to build a quality ultra well performing rod. Love this one in particular (476). Cannot wait to get the deep bend on nice little creek spotted bass!
