    My Go To Rod

    I’ve been waiting to write this review until I had put the 590C through it’s paces. For the last four months, I’ve used this rod in just about every trout fishing scenario you can imagine. Delicate dry fly presentations, dry-dropper rigs, streamers, etc. I can definitively tell you that the 590C has done everything I have asked it to do well, and it has become my go to trout rod. It protects tippets incredibly well, while at the same time having enough “guts” to toss a triple fly rig in a strong wind. I have owned a lot of great fly rods over the years, and my 590C is the best 5 weight I have ever fished.

    A fishermans rod

    The 590C is fantastically made and in my humble opinion, it excels in the most important areas of casting: presentation and accuracy. It is a dream to cast and is super accurate for when you need to thread the needle and drop your flies into that "one tiny spot" (most of our NZ fishing). Perfectly designed rod I think !

    Epic 590 C AKA "Black Betty"

    I would gladly look anyone in the eye and say this is the best flyrod I have used. Procrastination from flyrod purchase had me with old technology , things have certainly changed this baby has improved casting ability, presentation and accuracy --I have recommended Epic flyrods to friends.

    Epic by name, epic by nature

    The 590c is absolutely world-class. Light, responsive, smooth, and crisp - this rod is a true pleasure to fish. The build quality is outstanding - it's readily apparent that the Swift Fly Fishing team accept nothing short of perfection. Well done by the team for producing an ideal 5-weight.

    The Epic Action.
    Epic C series would best be described as Medium Fast in action. Epic C Series are light without sacrificing strength.

    Light
    The 590 C blank weighs an astoundingly light 36 grams (1.2oz) 10% lighter than our previous model and lighter than equivalent blanks by Scott or Sage.

    Tough
    Our use of 100% non woven fibre and Silica nano matrix technology makes for a very tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank.

    Better Components
    Each hand crafted Epic carbon fibre fly rod boasts the very finest components available: 

    • Silica nano matrix fly rod blank with internally reenforced ferule system
    • Sure-Fit™ ferrule system. Makes section replacements simple
    • Helical wound core construction - light while giving superior strength
    • SnakeBelly™ finish with super hard gloss coat to protect your rod
    • Stunning Japanese Silk thread wraps
    • Finest quality Portuguese cork grip
    • Titanium stripper guides - Corrosion proof
    • Premium quality snake guides from Snake brand USA - Highly corrosion resistant 
    • Our original design flip top rod sock - just better
    • Katana Rod Tube
    • cleaning cloth

    We believe there is no better fly rod made.

    • 100%  Carbon Construction.
      The carbon helix core boasts true 100% carbon construction. These blanks contain no scrim.
    • 100% Uni-directional material - Non Woven.
      Super light-weight construction and superior strength. Non woven Uni-directional material is up to 40% stronger than traditional woven material commonly used by fly rod manufacturers.  A non woven fiber can achieve 100% of its tensile and compressive loading. Unidirectional material affords super light weight construction and superior strength.
    • 100% Carbon Helix Core
      A 100% helical core forms the basis for hoop strength and fibre support in the zero/longitudinal axis and does away with traditional scrim based construction. 
    • Silica-nano technology. Super Low Resin Systems.
      Utilising materials with resin content up to 30% less than conventional materials, Epic C series blanks are lighter and stronger. Low resin materials help increase bending limits & overall response.
    • Multi Carbon Construction (Multi modulus).
      Using only the highest quality fabrics from USA, Japan and Korea, up to five different types of carbon are used in each blank. Each type is placed at various parts of the blank to optimize strength and weight. Ultra high modulus fibre boasts the highest tensile and compressive strength of any fibre in its class.
    • Internal High Strength Ferrule.
      A high strength internal ferrule is placed at each join to provide superior crush and split resistance. 
    • Target Zero Fibre Alignment.
      Fibre alignment along the length of any blank is critical. Even the smallest deviation in fibre alignment from the axis of load will greatly reduce the strength of the blank.
