      Can't wait to get started

      Having built an Epic 480 fastglass rod last winter, from a ready to wrap kit, & fished it all summer, I fell in love with it. Therefore the first thing that I thought of when my 9' 5wt rod broke at a ferrule this year (other than 'Now I have the skills to make a quick repair.') was, 'An Epic 590C would surely be a big upgrade & I'd get to experience the fun of rod building again.' I'd been after an upgrade to that rod (my most used) for a while anyway & having looked at other premium options, I just trusted that I'd like the Epic most. The blank looks beautiful & the parts top notch. I can't wait to get cracking with the build & then get out to cast it & catch some fish with it.

      Best Customer Service

      Great experience with the build. Picked up some helpful tips from the Epic manual that was included. It's amazing to me how quickly the shipping is. Much quicker than buying here in the States. I had a couple of questions and customer service is the best that I've found. I'm already a repeat customer.

      Love at first use

      Perfect rod, period. Match very well with a wulff triangle 5# for a VERY versatile setup, able to perform under windy condition, delicate dry presentation or single hand casting. Thanks for providing us such a good product. Regarding the kit, all the components were top notch... a pleasure to build.

      No reaming, no drilling, no sanding. Too Easy.
      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. Each cork grip is ported to receive our Epic reel seats perfectly. Easily assembled step by step. 

      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.

      Benefits of our ground ferrule system:

      • A secure positive fit eliminates knocks
      • Smoother energy transfer
      • Eliminates flat spots
      • Non slip - reduces twisting due to torque
      • Internally reinforced ferrules - eliminates ferrule fracture
      • Durable & scratch resistant
      • Gets better with use
      • Precise fit, sections are interchangeable, in the case of tip breakages replacement sections can be sent out immediately. No need to return the blank for a fit.

      Light

      The 590C blank weighs an astoundingly light 36 grams (1.2oz) 10% lighter than our previous model and lighter than equivalent blanks by Scott or Sage.

      Nano Tough

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

      As good as it gets

      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).
