  • The Epic DH13 Carbon Fibre Two Handed Spey Rod Kit

    The Satisfaction of building your own Spey Rod

    Build a premium quality two handed Spey rod with our comprehensive "Ready to Wrap" two handed fly rod kit.

    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.

    Weights:
    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: 340 - 420 grains. 
    6 / 7 Large Trout & Steelhead: 420 - 480 grains. 
    7 / 8 Salmon & large Steelhead: 470 - 530 grains. 

    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.

    Nano Tough

    Our use of Silica nano-resin makes for a very tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank.

    Material:Carbon Fibre (Graphite)

    Length: 13ft all models
    Weight Built: Aprox 200g - 206g depending on model (7oz to 7.2oz)

    DH13 two hander 5/6 weight

    As I’ve come to expect from Epic kits (this is my fourth build on an Epic blank), everything in the kit was top-notch (the cork is just amazing!). I’ve fished it regularly over the last month and absolutely love it. It was exactly what I was after. Light in the hand, crisp with the power to deal with big water and strong fish. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this rod to anyone in the market for a light two-hander.

    Love the rod!

    I recently bought and built the D13 Epic Spey ready wrap kit! The kit came with everything needed to build and had a very thorough step by step guide that made it easy and fun. This was my first build and as a two handed rod the task was a little daunting at first. The whole process took about 5 days including drying time. I was on the water with my new rod within a week and have now fished it several times. Although I haven't hooked into the monster steelhead I have have been hunting for the rod has performed well. I would recommend this product and these people to anyone from beginner to expert because of the quality and care that you get. Thank you again for a great experience.

    My first two-handed rod, and probably the only one I will ever need

    Having built three Epic rods so far, I couldn't resist picking up the DH13 when it was offered at this price. I have been wanting to get a Spey rod for some time - but the price was often the barrier. This was simply too good an offer to refuse. As with the other rod kits I purchased, this was no exception when it came to the quality of the components, and the customer service. Top-notch all the way. When the cork in the handle split while dry-fitting it to the blank, Swift had a replacement on the way by courier the next morning, no questions asked. This is what I have come to expect of the team at Swift, and one of the reasons I keep buying from them. Their customer service is second to none - and I dont mean within the fishing community - but across all areas of the retail market. Others could learn from their example. As for the rod - having never cast a two-handed in my life, this was all new territory for me. And what better way to break it in than a trip to New Zealand's Tongariro river. I purchased the 6-7 weight, which is marketed as being suitable for "Steelhead and large trout" - so figured this would be what I would need to wrestle with some of the fish that come out of this region. Firstly, I was superised at just how easy it was to cast this rod. Within 5 minutes or so I was managing to fire a Skagit line most the way across the river, and to cover some serious water on the swing. As I became more confident I started to experiment with adding more power to the cast. This rod is a beast. Super responsive and a solid lower section meant you could really pile on the power if needed. Once hooking up the tip was responsive enough to handle fighting big fish without putting the tippet at risk. I had my first fish on within 15 minutes of fishing, and landed the largest fish of the trip (5lbs) on this rod. Given I live in New Zealand, this will probably be the only two-hander I ever buy. It's more than up to the task of tackling the trout of the Taupo region, and will also be suitable when I ventually head to North America to chase Steelhead. So if you were thinking of getting into the two-handed game, look no further. Buy this rod.

    It’s light, strong and bends to the cork. It has “soul”

    I swore I’d never buy another rod without first casting it. Then I heard of the Epic DH13. A little-known company from the deep south of New Zealand, best known for its lightweight, fibreglass, single hand rods, offering a new six-piece, carbon fibre, two hander as a “Ready to Wrap“ kitset. What could possibly go wrong? As it happened – nothing! Just days after ordering, a box of materials, complete with a comprehensive, easy to follow, instruction manual, arrived. The components were of excellent quality. The cork grips pre-shaped and pre-bored to fit the blank. No drilling or reaming required. Everything fitted and all glues and threads did their job superbly. The rod was completed in just a few short hours of work. The finished Epic DH13 7/8 is a superb fly rod. It’s light, strong and bends to the cork. It has “soul”. The grain window is spot on. A Beulah Aerohead at 47ft and 510 grains, feels sweet. The experience has been so addictive that I’m about to start assembling a 690C. I’ve never cast one of those either. Tony Loader Fly Fishers International CI MCI THCI Eastwood NSW AUSTRALIA

    Double hand rod kit - YES!

    I've been a fan of Swift fly fishing's DIY rod building kits for a few years now. I'd never contemplated building my own rod until I stumbled across the Epic fibreglass kits and heard a few stories about a) how great the rods were and b) how easy the kits were to use even if you were brand new to rod building. So out of curiosity as much as anything else I took the plunge and ordered my first Epic kit, then another, then another... This double handed kit is my 4th Epic kit build (a few other custom builds on Epic blanks on top of that) and I have to say that Carl and the team just keep refining these things and getting better and better. With each new kit there are little refinements to the instructions or the components and supplies that make the whole process easy and fun. I'm reasonably new to the big rod but have been day dreaming of swinging flies in far off destinations for a while. Having this rod come in a 6 piece configuration opens up so many great opportunities to travel with the 13 footer. I'm in the final stages of building this rod up and I just can't wait to string it up and see how it casts. The blank is so damn light and crisp, I'm sure the casting experience is just going to be great. Maybe there's another review to come!
