I wanted to hold off writing a review until I had the chance to put the 590c through its paces. I had never built a rod before and was therefore a complete novice. The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable and components of the highest quality. The instructions were really easy to follow and my rod turned out great. The 590c has a beautiful action. Fast enough to use with weighted flies yet very delicate and accurate in close. It is everything I had hoped for. For me I’d like a hook keeper on the rod and may well put one on. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the 590c or Epic kits to anyone and will probably build another rod soon. Cheers
Sent a review preiously and am awaiting an answer from Adam Adam with regards to my build! Kind Regards & Happy New Year!, Cheers, Stephen
The very Best blank and the very Best professional
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.

Benefits of our ground ferrule system:
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.
Our use of Silica nano-resin makes for a very tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank.
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).Got questions? - Drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you.
