Welcome to The Swift Fly Fishing Company!
Yep, because we just can't bear to do what everybody else does we had to put the Epic spin on our rod tubes.
Hand rolled from cross weave fiberglass, our Epic tube is incredibly strong yet decidedly feather like in the weight department. Finished in a tough clear gloss top coat.
It will not ding & dint like the other guys el-cheapo extruded aluminium tubes, nor is it so damn noisy! - these babies can roll and slide around in the back of your truck without you having to turn up the Creedence to drown out the din. (Creedence should be on full V's regardless btw)
Our hand fitted aircraft grade Aluminium end caps are deep anodized then laser engraved with our classic Epic logo. Why you may ask? - because it's cool we reply.
The kicker - you know those crap rubber washers found under tube end caps? - the ones that probably aren't there anymore because they got squeezed out, perished and split from screwing on the end cap?
We don't have 'em.
Our exceedingly clever designer gave this seemingly minor problem a lot of thought and put together end caps with a recessed rubber O-ring - you know, just like O-rings are supposed to work…
Now, wouldn't you have though someone would have come up with that before. Soon, everyone will be doing this... (Thank you Stephen)
Pay attention up there in the back!
made in New Zealand
These tubes are all class. Light enough to pack into the back country, plenty strong enough to look after the rod, and the water tight cap does just that, seals the tube well enough you could use it as a bouyancy aid. All round, I don't see how you could improve it.
I purchased the natural rod tube via email before they were available online (Saw an Instagram post before release). The customer service at Swift is truly top notch. I am very pleased with my purchase. The tube itself is much more durable then I expected, and it matches my custom nude 686 perfectly. The quality of the tube matches Epic blanks, impeccable. I will, of course, be purchasing more products from Swift. Great work dudes and dudettes!
In the extremely unlikely event that you don't love one of our fly rods, we'll not only refund 100% and ship back at our cost, but we'll also buy you a beer for your troubles.
Due to the international nature of our business, beer will most likely be provided by way of a crisp New Zealand $10 note from our owners wallet, sent to you personally. (this has never actaully happend by the way - so who knows, we might just turn up personally)
All our Epic Studio Built Fly Rods also carry a lifetime warranty.
