Smoother than Barry White.

The 580 is super versatile, super smooth and just slick as all hell. Our personal favourite, the Epic 580 is the perfect dry fly rod.

Our Epic™ 580 is crafted from Unidirectional S2 Glass, this material is stiffer and stronger than e-glass or standard s-glass. The 580 is a super smooth and extremely versatile fly rod blank.

For the wife

I bought a 580 to replace a rod for my wife and built this up custom and nice for her. We took it out several times and one day she let me borrow it for streamer fishing. Its alot faster action than I expected and comparing it to the other 5wt glass that I own but accurate as well. You could try one for yourself or for your significant other, but don't let them catch you leaving home with it!

I keep reaching for this rod

Built an Olive 580 Epic last winter. Now, this is the one I keep reaching for, over the other glass and graphite in the car. Super smooth, surprisingly light in the hand and just a true pleasure to use. Like I said, I keep grabbing this one over the other 5 rods in the car with me.



These rods are cool.

I know the owner of this build will have an Epic experience crying out "Fish On!"

Wish I have 10 more of each Swift blank.
