The Epic 590C Ready to Wrap Fly Rod Kit

The very best components available, all designed to fit together seamlessly. No Reaming, No Drilling, No Sanding - all Epic.

Advanced, High Performance Freshwater Fly.

The Epic 590 C is an extremely light responsive blank designed specifically for dry fly, emerger and light nymph fishing for trout of all sizes.

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.

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 590 C 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).

590C the best 9' #5 rod iv ever cast!

What can I say other than WOW, WOW & WOW! Firstly the rod kit is super easy to accomplish. Anyone with patience can easily put a rod together. Being methodical will mean the finish will be nicer, but even if you dont, the rod will still fish / cast just as well. The rod is true to the Swift brand in that is a proper casting machine. Carl and the team at Swift have managed to build a world beating rod manufacturing business in NZ, based wholeheartedly on rods that have feel and soul, and this rod is no exception. I have to say iv never in all my years of Fly Fishing been so besotted in a rod! I just want to go out and cast it over and over. Im almost trying not to catch fish, so I can cast it more. Crazy I know. Firstly I'm amazed at how light it is in the hand. I know Carl said to me that the Gen 2 was lighter than the Gen 1, but I didn't realize how much. It really feels as though you almost no swing weight what so ever. As though the only weight you feel is the line outside the rod tip. The action is such that I find I can deliver tiny chromoniod imitations (size 18-22) at distance with extreme delicacy, yet the rod will load with very little line outside the rod tip. This has to have something to do with such low swing weight? I'm so blown away by this rod that, here I am 3 weeks after finishing the build of my 590C and im putting up my current #6 rod for sale, and buying a 690c kit to replace it. Keep on doing what your doing Swift! World beaters!!

First time build

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.

DO more

Don't know why these guys are messing around with fiberglass fly rods, their graphite is better than anything out there

Very very good

Great service and shipping was surpsingly quick. The kit is very comprehensive and very well thought out. The main component, the Epic 590c blank is absolutely excellent - as good or better than anything I've cast or fished. Swift got the action on this right, very right. 5 stars

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
