    Epic Standard - Epics built on the same premium blanks used on our high end Custom Studio Built Fly Rods. One colour, no custom options. Built and ready to ship immediately

    The Epic 690 C is a custom tuned, advanced, lightweight, and highly responsive fly rod designed for technical dry fly, streamer and nymph fishing for trout of all sizes.

    A premium quality carbon fibre (graphite) fly rod that is light, silky smooth and incredibly tough.

    Recommended line weight: AFTMA #6
    Length: 9'
    Pieces: 4
    Weight: 93g / 3.2oz

    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 690 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

    • 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
    • Premium quality snake guides from Snake brand USA - Highly corrosion resistant 
    • Our original design flip top rod sock - just better

    Tech
    • 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.
      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 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.
