Special Edition Two Handed Spey Rods
Something Special for Steel.
At Swift we know good things take time - it took us two full years to develop our new two handed fly rods.
With help from April Vokey and a swag of notable spey casters from Canada to the Pacific North West & even Australia - we believe we've nailed it.
You've been waiting patently and quietly prodding us along well, thank you.
To celebrate we've created these magnificent special edition matte black two handers with subtle accents of silver, giving a 'tip O the hat' to the silvery quarry they were designed to chase.
Attention to Detail and Workmanship.
Using only the finest materials and components the new Epic two handed rods are handcrafted in our small studio workshop one at a time with painstaking attention to detail.
Keeping with our ethos of "build best quality" each grip is turned from premium quality flor grade cork. Guides are by Snake brand USA in black nickel, the dual stripping guides are dark titanium with super hard Japanese SiC insert.
Built upon a multi-modulus unidirectional carbon fibre blank and employing a scrim-less helical wound core the Epic two handers are extremely light, crisp and remarkably tough.
Based off feedback from our prototypes it was clear that the convenience of a 6 piece configuration was definitely desirable. So that's what we've done! The 7/8 model is available in either a standard 4 piece or a 6 pice config' that fits easily onto luggage along side a standard single hand tube. The 6/7 model is available in 6 pice only. The 5/6 is standard 4 piece only.
Truth to the material.
Epic fly rods incorporate the classic designers concept of “Truth to the Material” which holds that any material should be used where it is most appropriate and its nature should not be hidden. With this ethos in mind each Epic fly rod uses components that we believe are the very best. Each flyrod is handcrafted one at a time in our small studio workshop - no detail is overlooked.

I have been casting my new Epic 7/8 weight two hander for a few weeks and so far I have run. A mid-belly, skagit and scandi head with full sinking to intermediate tips, a ballistic launcher, and a Wulff super salmon Spey. I have found lines closer to the eight weight in grain scale work a little better. I would say the rod has a progressive action which was a surprise considering the number of ferrules. More pieces means more ferrules which often means stiffness but not here,with the tip of the rod loading nicely during the forward cast and when required plenty of flex left through the mid section when needed for long sink tips and heavier flies, its light weight which makes it's a great fishing tool and also it's easier to transport. It will be my weapon of choice on some up coming trips and casting days.
