990 epic review
The instructions were clear and concise everything worked as stated I am very happy with the 990 after doing couple of bindings with the clear silk bindings I was not really happy with the clear I went back to my favourite colours black and silver on the blue blank which was much more to my liking . Everyone that has seen the rod has commented on how it looks and the finish of the bindings which were all positive with more than a few enquiries on building rods for them and to top it off I caught a nice chunky bass first cast with a fly I tied myself of which I sent carl a photo . cheers Noel

"This is my fifth Epic build. As before all the components are excellent, the finished rod is nicely balanced and rod casts a five weight line beautifully.
