Smoother than Barry White.

The 580 is super versatile and super smooth. Our personal favourite, the 580 presents with grace but has the strength and lifting power of a big five.  

The Epic 580 is an extremely smooth and versatile fly rod and the perfect choice for dry fly fishing.

Our Epic™ 580 is crafted from Unidirectional S2 Glass, this material is stiffer and stronger than e-glass or standard s-glass.  

Recommended line weight: AFTMA #5 

Length: 8'
Pieces: 4

FastGlass II
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
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.

SureFit Ferule
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.

Handcrafted one at a time - especially for you
Choose the options you'd like on your Epic fly rod and we'll build it for you with tender loving care right here in our Wanaka Studio. Each Studio built fly rod is handcrafted specifically for you from start to finish and each is identified by a unique laser engraved winding check registered against your name in our owners database.

Make it personal
Add your name name or inscription and we'll hand paint it on your fly rod. 

Workmanship
The level or craftsmanship on each Epic fly rod is unrivalled. You will not see a better built fly rod anywhere, better components, better workmanship, better attention to detail.

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.

Delivered direct to your door
Once ordered it usually takes around two weeks to build your new fly rod, then we deliver priority tracked and insured courier direct to you door. We'll email you with tracking info as your rod leaves our studio workshop.

Each Epic Fly Rod Features:

  • FastGlass fly rod blank with internally reenforced ferule system
  • SureFit™ - easily replaced sections in case of breakage
  • Lifetime support
  • High quality fiberglass rod tube
  • Premium hand sewn rod sock
  • Cleaning cloth
  • Finest quality Portuguese cork grip
  • Premium quality Epic reel seat
  • Premium quality titanium stripper guides
  • Best quality Snake guides by Snake Brand™ USA
  • Premium Japanese Silk thread wraps
  • Decals and stickers
