The 3 weight you don't have to baby-sit. Our Epic 370 is a subtle, lightweight yet very strong fly rod blank perfect for small trout, cutties and Brook Trout.
Built using FastGlass™ this is the 3 wt that really is one tough customer. Far stronger and robust than any Carbon Fibre (graphite) fly rod, the 370 allows you to fish very fine tippets and leaders yet have confidence in a rod that is tough and extremely robust.
Our Epic™ 370 is crafted from Unidirectional S2 Glass, this material is stronger & lighter than e-glass or standard s-glass.
Recommended Line Weight: AFTMA #3
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 micron fibers 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.
Break a tip? we've got you covered This ferule system is so precise that breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section.
Built Epic Tough
Epic glass rods are incredibly tough. Our S2 FastGlass II has a far higher strength-to-weight ratio than Carbon fibre (graphite) rods. Epic FastGlass rods can endure more acute and severe bends than the equivalent Carbon fibre or even regular S2 glass, tip sections are stronger and far less susceptible to breakages due to high-sticking and problematic rod angles when pulling against load.

Blank arrived pretty fast for something coming from around the world. Haven’t built it yet, but it looks and feels amazing so far. Love the color of the blank, the rod tube, and the sock. I also love the way the sock closes, instead of having to fold it over and then tie it, you just turn the cover flap inside out, kind of like a sandwich bag. Once I build it and get it out on the water, I’ll give an updated review. This will be my first custom fly rod and, I’ve only been fly fishing for about 4 months now, so I can’t give a proper review, but for people who aren’t seasoned fly fishermen, I’ll do the best I can!!
A trip to a heavily-wooded creek with a rod that was about two feet too long was convincing enough to look for something a little smaller and lighter. Being a fan of glass rods, it was a “no brainer:” The 370 is incredibly light but strong enough to get the job done on some of those brown and brook trout holding in creek structures. Whether roll casting, overhead casting, and with just a little fly line hanging out of the tip top, this rod performs flawlessly in those sort of situations. Not to mention the color and “snake belly” finish adding to the visual appeal.
As usual super smooth, love the new finish!
