Epic (s) all the way

I've been building on the Epic blanks ever since Carl contacted me a few years ago. I was amazed that a rod company would be interested in a small one off custom shop like mine. Well, they do care and the rest is history. I currently have 5 Epic blanks on the bench in various states of construction. The 590C & 690C blow other carbon/ graphite blanks out of the H2O. And I have built on almost every blank out there. But.... I am a Bamboo & glass junkie and I haven't fished glass like Epic glass. Top shelf all the way. As I tell customers Epic glass isn't mushy glass, it's glass with attitude. Pete Renaissance Rods

Epic 480

This was the 4th Epic I've built for myself or customers. Based on each of their reactions upon seeing and feeling the rod for the very first time I will be making plenty more. I'm sure they will enjoy fishing their rod as much as I have the last few years.

The Epic 480 Love Stick

I admit, it was the look of them that turned me on to the Epic rods in the first place. How can you not get curious of a series of rods that basically scream "-Hey, look at me. Look what I can do!" And as luck had it, a guest at our lodge had several rods with him so I got the opportunity to try them out before I got one of my own. Just perfect for delicate presentations on the smaller rivers, but it still packs a punch. So smooth and it protects thin leaders like no other rod I have tried. My 480 will definitely get company from of few more colorful friends. Stay Epic!

What the experts say

The most popular GLASS streamer rod on the market.
"I really believe the EPIC 686 is by far the most popular GLASS streamer rod on the market. More often than not, I get requests for the 686 and most of the time in Salsa. Carl has created a wonderful, and powerful taper and folks love them!"
Shane Gray. Graywolf Rods
A phenomenal blank
"I will only touch on this for a second because everyone keeps hearing how phenomenal the 686 is. This is a phenomenal blank. 
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."
Zeb Tonkavich. Snowman Custom Rod Works
A powerhouse
"the Epic 686 is (f#$%'ing) magic in my hands. This fly rod is responsive, quick to load, and a powerhouse that lays out very long accurate casts with relative ease."

Cameron Mortenson. The Fiberglass Manifesto
