    686 Build

    I just finished my 686 build using the ready to wrap kit. Thanks for making it a simple, easy to use process. I was a little intimidated by the thought of building my own, but you guys have made it simple for beginners. I can't wait to fish it now!

    Wow...just wow!

    Before I get into how magical this rod casts, I feel the need to express the joy in building an Epic glass rod. Everything fit together perfectly out of the box and the entire build took only a few days, including drying time for three coats on the threads. After hearing some horror stories about attempting ghost wraps for the first time, they were a breeze following the included instructions. Although, it may seem intimidating, I would highly recommend any Epic kit for a first rod build. All the hardware included with these kits top notch. Now to the water. I initially made this purchase with the idea that this will be my primary streamer rod, paired with a Nautilus X-series XL reel in order to have an setup that will work equally well on streams, lakes and saltwater. Over the last few weeks, I have been casting everything from 2/0 bass poppers, bait fish patterns, deer hair mice and lots of basic streamer variations. It doesn't stop there. While I normally throw dries and dropper rigs with a 4wt on the small streams of North Carolina, the 8'6" length of the 686 makes it easy to cast small, delicate presentations as well. I am more than pleased with the Epic 686 and will be coming back for another.

    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
