    10 Wt Bandit

    I just finished my 888 build and I’m super happy almost as happy as my 476 build. Both are absolutely beautiful but the Bandit color is gorgeous. I’m going to start it right after I build the 6 wt glass kit for my son. The builds are very straight forward. I’m hooked for sure

    Epic Bandit - awesome!!!!! just epic!!!!

    I finished my Epic Bandit some days ago and tested it with diffrent lines. I am used to heavy rods for pike for many years - but this is new to me. Such a great "fly rod feeling" but a very strong backbone too and it can handle very very big flies with ease. This rod is just awesome!!! I am very impressed about the hole set-up. The blank is super high quality - the reel seat, the cork, the guides everything PERFECT. Swift - keep up your great work.

    Dead simple to build and a joy to fish!

    I really cut it close on this one, ordering a kit around three weeks before the trip I wanted to use it on. It arrived on Saturday, the fit of the handle components was so dialed in that I had it glued and drying that evening. The instructions for making transparent wraps with silk thread worked perfectly. All in all I had the rod done and dried and ready to fish by Wednesday morning which for me is a record. The quality of the components and instructions HD a lot to do with that. End result: oh man is this fun to cast. I was pitching a 7" game changer with 4 segments and a howitzer popper head and was able to punch it out there 40 feet with a single false cast and double haul. It was easy to build, easy on the eye, and easy on the arm. I'm sold and will be building some more for myself and others.

    The experience in dealing with Swift is as exceptional as the product itself. This was my first time in building a rod myself and a recent love of glass saw me bite the bullet. I really loved the communication and updates from Swift during the purchase. What really blew me away was the quality of the blank, components and instructions. I was surprised at how easy the build was, particularly if you took time to read the instructions and enjoy the process. The rod really is fantastic at punching big flies designed for Murray Cod. Thanks again and I'm sure I will build more rods from your stable

    Just got back from Belize, using this rod. The rod turned out great. It takes a bit to get used to casting with the slightly slower speed rod in the heavy wind out on the flats, but catching those powerful fish on this rod is more than fun. Rod casts well and can put a lot of power on the fish. Excellent product for my second FastGlass!

"This is my 4th Epic build and things worked out great! I expect this rod will tame a few mako sharks this Summer. "
