Meet the very lucky Epic 888

Our mighty 888 was designed specifically for chasing Bonefish but is just at home wrangling large freshwater species like Carp, Pike and monster Muskie 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 easy casting soul and incredible strength of S2 FastGlass™

S2 FastGlass™ - not your papa’s fiberglass fly rod. 
Epic™ blanks are made to exacting standards using a proprietary Unidirectional S2-glass composite. Unlike other fiberglass fly rods, this material features a fully unidirectional fibre layup which aligns fibres longitudinally along the blank where they are most needed. This recipe, rolled to our Epic tapers combine silky smooth loading with trophy pulling power that we call FastGlass. The result is an incredibly strong, light and powerful tube with a crisp, precise response.

Hand crafted one at a time.
Each Epic fly rod is specifically hand made for you as it is ordered.  Please allow two to three weeks for us to do an Epic job for you. We’ll be in touch with a build time and shipping details as soon as we receive your order.

Each Epic fly rod features:

  • FastGlass fly rod blank with internally reenforced ferule system
  • High quality fiberglass rod tube in satin black
  • Premium hand sewn rod sock.
  • cleaning cloth.
  • Finest quality Portuguese cork grip.
  • Full cork fighting butt with composite cork end (no cheap close cell foam)
  • Epic reel seat in either black or Titanium finish.
  • Guide set (Snake brand Universal guides USA)
  • Premium quality Titanium stripper guides.

Excellent rod

I took the 888 Fastglass to Christmas Island. It performed great for bonefish and a trigger or two. Delicate presentation, but had the backbone to fight the bones and smaller triggers. Craftsmanship is excellent. Only thing I'd change is that the reel seat is a bit longer than it seems is required, but perhaps some people use reels with a longer foot-plate, not sure. Anyway, it's only a minor thing. The rod performed great and is a beautiful work of craftsmanship.

888 FastGlass Fly Rod review

Fantastic service. Build quality of the rod is stunning. Performs exactly as expected. Everything about the package was world class, second to none. Definitely the best fibreglass fly rod that I've ever handled. Looking forward to bending it double.
