*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 580 is super versatile, super smooth and just slick as all hell. Our personal favourite, the Epic 580 is the perfect dry fly rod.
Our Epic™ 580 is crafted from Unidirectional S2 Glass, this material is stiffer and stronger than e-glass or standard s-glass. The 580 is a super smooth and extremely versatile fly rod blank.
All Epic "Glass" rods are produced from industry leading 8 micron Unidirectional S-2 Glass. This next generation fiber 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 tighter, more precise and stronger fly rods.
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 durable.

The 580 blem arrived in less time than many other venders I have dealt with. The blemishes on the rod were limited to some discolorations and spots on the Epic logo. Overall the blemishes were very minor. The rod build is now finished and I am very pleased with the way the rod casts. I would recommend dealing with Swift to anyone.
