  • Meet the very lucky Epic 888

    *Blemish, these blanks have a slight dark spot at the butt. This is cosmetic only, blanks are structurally perfect and otherwise flawless. Limited stock.

    The mighty 888 was designed specifically for chasing Big Bonefish but is just at home wrangling large freshwater species too. Given there’s not a flat where the wind doesn’t blow we’ve given the 888 an extra powerful butt section, strong tip and fast recovery rate to help punch a line out into those skinny water breezes.

    The Epic 888 has gained cult status with Redfish, Pike, Musky and Golden Dorado anglers world wide. If you're chasing big toothy courtiers - this is the weapon of choice.

    Regarded by industry pro's and glass aficionados world wide as the best glass 8wt made, the Epic 888 presents beautifully but packs a bad ass attitude. Perfect for tossing big flies, swinging streamers and saltwater work. 

    The 888 is as strong as an ox, super smooth and extremely versatile.

    FastGlass II
    The Epic™ 888 is produced using 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. 

    SnakeBelly
    Our SnakeBelly™ finish is produced by a unique radial production process. SnakeBelly™ delivers the toughest exterior finish possible. After production, blanks are first painted and then clear coated. This two step process produces blanks that are incredibly scratch resistant and very durable.

    Sure Fit Ferule
    Break a tip? we've got you covered  This ferule system is so precise that parts interchange between models. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section to the manufacturer or outlet where you purchased from. Breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part.

    Recommended line weight: AFTMA #8

    Extra Lucky
    In Chinese tradition, certain numbers are believed to be auspicious and possess special powers. The number 8 signifies prosperity and wealth and is viewed as such an auspicious number that a number with several eights is consideredvery lucky indeed. We think the 888 is extra lucky because, like us, it was made in New Zealand.

    Finished in new Electric Blue
