DH13 Carbon two handed Spey rod blank
DH13 Carbon two handed Spey rod blank. The world's smartest fly rod blank.
Advanced, High Performance Freshwater Spey.
The Epic DH13 is a state of the art carbon fibre fly rod blank designed for two handed fishing.
3 Weights. One length. 6 Pieces
After talking to Spey casters around the world a 13ft two hander was clearly the most versatile and useful length for most two handed casters. A standardized length across our range also makes line selection a comparatively easy task.
Epic two handed blanks come in 3 different weights / power configurations:
5-6 Trout Spey
6-7 Large Trout & Steelhead
7-8 Salmon & large Steelhead
Recommended Grain Windows:
5-6 Trout Spey: 250-460 grains. 16-30 grams
6-7 Large Trout & Steelhead: 350-510 grains. 19.5 - 33 grams
7-8 Salmon & large Steelhead: 420-620 grains. 23 - 40 grams
Revised generation two nano-technology. Epic C series are a state of the art fly rod blank. The most sophisticated composite materials and production processes are used in their construction. Proprietary nano-resins, full Helical construction, multi modulus, and unidirectional carbon fibre - We believe this is the most sophisticated fly rod blank available.
Ground ferrule system
In addition to the industry leading technology used in each of our blanks, Epic carbon fibre fly rod blanks feature our proprietary ground ferrule system. Each male ferrule is hand ground to perfectly fit the female section of the blank. Female sections are all internally reinforced.
Our use of Silica nano-resin makes for a very tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank.

100% Carbon Construction.
The carbon helix core boasts true 100% carbon construction. These blanks contain no scrim.
100% Uni-directional material - Non Woven.
Super light-weight construction and superior strength. Non woven Uni-directional material is up to 40% stronger than traditional woven material commonly used by fly rod manufacturers. A non woven fiber can achieve 100% of its tensile and compressive loading. Unidirectional material affords super light weight construction and superior strength.
The helical core forms the basis for hoop strength and fibre support in the zero/longitudinal axis and does away with traditional scrim based construction.
Silica nano-resin. Super Low Resin Systems.
Utilising materials with resin content up to 30% less than conventional materials, Epic C series blanks are lighter and stronger. Low resin materials help increase bending limits & overall response.
Multi Carbon Construction (Multi modulus).
Using only the highest quality fabrics from USA, Japan and Korea, up to five different types of carbon are used in each blank. Each type is placed at various parts of the blank to optimize strength and weight. Ultra high modulus fibre boasts the highest tensile and compressive strength of any fibre in its class.
Internal High Strength Ferrule.
A high strength internal ferrule is placed at each join to provide superior crush and split resistance.
Target Zero Fibre Alignment.
Fibre alignment along the length of any blank is critical. Even the smallest deviation in fibre alignment from the axis of load will greatly reduce the strength of the blank. All Epic blanks are designed and produced to ensure all fiber is aligned as near perfect as can be with the load
Two pack Marine Grade Paint system.
Epic C series blanks are finished with a clear marine grade two pack paint system for extra protection and toughness.

What the experts say
The beauty is in the fact that the rod will lay out ten feet of line with the delicacy of a full flex cane, but when called upon fire 95' of line into a stiff breeze. It does all of this with a great deal of feel and composure that most rods will never achieve.
It is quite possibly one of the best 6wts on the market glass, graph, or grass."
