590 C series Carbon Fibre fly rod blank

Sku: 590C_blank_only
Vendor: SWIFT

The world's smartest fly rod blank.

Advanced, High Performance Freshwater Fly.

The Epic 590 C is an extremely light responsive blank designed specifically for dry fly, emerger and light nymph fishing for trout of all sizes.

Revised generation two nano-technology. Epic C series are a state of the art fly rod blank. The most sophisticated composite materials and production processes are used in their construction. Proprietary nano-resins, full Helical construction, multi modulus, and unidirectional carbon fibre - We believe this is the most sophisticated fly rod blank available

Ground ferrule system

In addition to the industry leading technology used in each of our blanks, Epic carbon fibre fly rod blanks feature our proprietary ground ferrule system. Each male ferrule is hand ground to perfectly fit the female section of the blank. Female sections are all internally reinforced.

Benefits of our ground ferrule system:

  • A secure positive fit eliminates knocks
  • Smoother energy transfer
  • Eliminates flat spots
  • Non slip - reduces twisting due to torque
  • Internally reinforced ferrules - eliminates ferrule fracture
  • Durable & scratch resistant
  • Gets better with use
  • Precise fit, sections are interchangeable, in the case of tip breakages replacement sections can be sent out immediately. No need to return the blank for a fit.

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.

Nano Tough

Our use of Silica nano-resin makes for a very tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank.

As good as it gets

Epic C (Carbon) series fly rod blanks are high performance fishing tools. The lockup point develops in the top third of the blank, and although recovery rates are fast, the Epic C series would best be described as Mid Flex (Orvis) or Medium fast (Sage). They are light without sacrificing strength (lighter than the equivalent Sage one).

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.

Carbon Helix Core.
The 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-resin. 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. C series 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. 

Two pack Marine Grade Paint system.
Epic C series blanks are finished with a clear marine grade two pack paint system for extra protection and toughness.

    Not much to say really

    And I don't mean that in a negative way, far from it actually. But there are really only a few things to say about this Epic 590 Carbon. If you are looking for what I call a trout rod, this is it. It will do all you ask of it with finesse and precision. It's light in the hand and a joy to use all day. Those who have tried it agree. Simply the finest 5 weight I have ever fished. When it all ends, this one will go with me to Valh̦ll........

    The Epic Carbon Series.

    Andrea and I have been beating around on the 590C (Andrea) and 690C (myself) for slightly over a year now. First impressions; mmmm black, I love the image of the raw carbon in lightly sanded state. At this point of the inspection phase I realized they are crazy light for a 5 and 6 line. Who doesn't love a light rod? From a build stand point the tubes are relatively small diameter. The spigot overlap is deep which gives the rod a very unified feel in hand when assembled. The blank finish doesn't impede wrapping like some blanks with a higher unsanded ridge. They are true to line weight and I've found them to be understated by less than a half step on average. The 5 clocking at roughly 5.30 and the 6 somewhere slightly above at 6.49 The recovery rate is fast and with very little of the overall weight is in the tip section. This creates for a very nimble maneuverable end product. Behind that light tip is plenty of power. Which creates a great blend of close range delicacy (throwing just from the tip) and the ability to throw long distance bombs (engaging the rod along the full length) with in hand feel. It offers limitless potential, and fishes well across a broad spectrum. On water experience. The Carbon series has plenty of power for long lifts, tandem rigs, and aggressive double hauls. The lite and delicate tip telegraphs exceptionally well when dredging the bottom with weighted nymphs. Streamers on sink tips are a nonissue as well. Hooked up on a fish the rod shows all the characteristics of the Epic brand. Composed and confident, with a sacrificial tip that takes a quick curve defending lighter tippets. We have put some fish of size on both and the rod doesn't care both have plenty of down low power for steering fish even in fast water. I could go on and on, but simply these are extremely proficient capable rods that can not be dismissed. Zeb Tonkavich Snowman Custom Rod Works www.Snowmancustomrodworks.com
