Classic Glass Feel

Super smooth with plenty of reserve power. At 8ft for a four weight, the 480 is a smooth, full flexing fly rod blank perfect for light dry fly fishing.

Highly regarded by those that favour a slower deeper bending fly rod, the 480's classic slow glass action will not disappoint.

Our Epic™ 480 is crafted from Unidirectional S2 Glass, this material is stronger and lighter than e-glass or standard s-glass.
