The Renowned Epic 990

At 9ft long and rated for AFTMA 9 our 4 piece Epic 990 is an absolute powerhouse. 

Produced using our Epic FastGlass™ the 990 is designed to make short work of monster bones, inshore pelagics, Salmon, Steelhead, Redfish and Snook.

The easy casting soul and incredible strength of S2 FastGlass™
S2 FastGlass™ - not your papa’s fiberglass fly rod.
Epic™ blanks are made to exacting standards using a proprietary Unidirectional S2-glass composite. Unlike other fiberglass fly rods, this material features a fully unidirectional fibre layup which aligns fibres longitudinally along the blank where they are most needed. This recipe, rolled to our Epic tapers combine silky smooth loading with trophy pulling power that we call FastGlass.The result is an incredibly strong, light and powerful tube with a crisp, precise response.

Built Epic Tough
Epic glass rods are incredibly tough. Our S2 FastGlass 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, tip sections are stronger and far less susceptible to breakages due to high-sticking and problematic rod angles when pulling against load.

Flyrods with Soul
There’s no other way to describe it. Glass has a warm “alive” tactile feeling, by comparison carbon fibre feels quite “metallic” cold and dead. Epic fly rods are just plain fun to cast, they will definitely put a smile on your dial - we guarantee it.

*Hand crafted one at a time.
Each Epic fly rod is specifically hand made as it is ordered. Please allow two to three weeks for us to do an Epic job for you. We’ll be in touch with a build time and shipping details as soon as we receive your order.

Gold standard for trout rods
"I live in the northeast part of the US and, when I'm not working, I'm chasing trout on small technical streams (e.g. Mossy Creek) in the east and bigger rivers out west like the Colorado, Blue, Arkansas or South Platte. This rod, the 690 C, is exceptional for any form of trout fishing. It's my favorite performance rod and is the benchmark against which any other rod should be evaluated. It's beautifully crafted and whether I'm fishing with friends or using a guide, everyone wants to give it a go and comes away impressed. I can't say enough good things about the production quality and the customer service I've received from Swift. Keep doing what you're doing - everyone is taking notice."
