The world's smartest two handed fly rod

Presenting the very finest two handed Spey rod available.
Each Epic two handed Spey rod is a custom tuned, advanced, lightweight, and highly responsive two handed fly rod.

3 Weights. One length. 6 Pieces.

After talking to expert Spey casters around the world a 13ft two hander was clearly the most versatile and useful length for most two handed casters. A standardized length across our range also makes line selection a comparatively easy task.

Weights:
Epic two handed blanks come in 3 different weights / power configurations:
5-6 Trout Spey
6-7 Large Trout & Steelhead
7-8 Salmon & large Steelhead

Recommended Grain Windows:
5-6 Trout Spey: 250-460 grains. 16-30 grams
6-7 Large Trout & Steelhead: 350-510 grains. 19.5 - 33 grams
7-8 Salmon & large Steelhead: 420-620 grains. 23 - 40 grams

Attention to Detail and Workmanship.

Using only the finest materials and components each Epic fly rod is handcrafted in our small studio workshop one at a time with painstaking attention to detail.

When purchasing one of our advanced carbon fibre rods you can be confident that you are investing in premium engineering, components and craftsmanship.

    Convenience.

    Feedback from traveling anglers told us that conventional 4 piece rods were too long to travel with, we took that on board and produce all our two handers in a convenient 6 piece configuration. These big rods will easily fit in your luggage along side a single handed fly rod.

    Our unique ground ferule system means actions are precise and indistinguishable from a standard 4 piece rod.

        I love casting this rod

        Just a short note to let you know I have been using my DH13 7-8 Spey Rod now for over 12 months and I have certainly given it a workout (read Hiding). I have taught people that have never cast a Spey Rod, right up to Master Certified Casting Instructors preparing for their Two hand Certification. Several of those now own one and one has now purchased a 5-6 trout Spey as well !!!. I have fished Skagit lines with sink tips swinging flies for trout and on lakes casting Skandi and long belly lines. I regularly fish the rocks and beaches for a variety of salt water species so I have really tested it out. So what is my impression overall. Anyone that owns or has cast one of your rods knows the attention to detail and the quality of your rods they are beautiful. To me they have to be more than that, they are a tool of my trade so they have to perform. A rod has to cast smoothly and effortlessly all day, it has to handle a variety of lines leaders and flies. I have to be able to teach short casts to very long casts. It has to be tough and the 6 pieces makes it easy to travel with. Most importantly it has to be fun to fish. The Epic DH13 7-8 does all of the above with ease. From the first cast you FEEL the progressive action as the rod loads, but it is in the unload where the magic happens. The DH13 7-8 unloads quickly and recovers quickly but without the jarring feeling of some rods allowing you to make nice loops with very little tip bounce. I love casting this rod, I love fishing this rod and I love the smile on peoples faces when they cast it. Thanks Carl to you and the team for producing such an amazing rod. I highly recommend it… Brian Henderson. International Federation Of Fly Fisherman Master Casting Instructor / Certified Two Handed Casting Instructor PS. Had a play with a 5-6 trout Spey last weekend that is another rod I would highly recommend

        Extremely nice to look at and very light for type of rod. The finish on all areas is top notch. Best cork seen on any rod full stop. Thanks for a top class product

        Epic DH13. 5/6 wt

        I have been out for a cast with Epic 2h 5/6wt. Set as follows. Airflow Rage 425gr, 14' intermediate poly leader and 6' 8lb tippet lightly weighted Jason Pullan micro intruder all linked to an opst laser running line. Head to fly length 50' give or take. Started casting half the head slowly increasing to full head using single spey. I increased running line in 6' increments alternating between single spey, snapT and spiral spey casts. I would agree with Andy Cawthorn in saying the action is progressive with fast tip recovery through Change of direction casts. The rage head turned over effortless with tight laser strait loops out to 100' plus. The build quality of the rod can only be classed as magnificent. Carl McNeil and the team at swift have done them selves proud with a top quality rod.

        The stealth

        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.

        Epic DH13 Two Handed Spey Rod Review
        I’m going to go straight into it, best and funnest rod I’ve ever cast! Usually spey rods these days are geared up for the ever increasing popularity of shooting heads, not a bad thing by any means, but throw in some marketing regarding their versatility with all lines, then there’s usually a wolf at the door. The Epic was truly progressive / responsive. This rod threw effortless tight loops, and accurately placed casts, even at 130 ft. thanks to the quick tip recovery! Even lazy casts, dead straight!

        Brain Henderson Epic two handed Spey Rod Review
        I love casting this rod, I love fishing this rod and I love the smile on peoples faces when they cast it.
        Just a short note to let you know I have been using my DH13 7-8 Spey Rod now for over 12 months and I have certainly given it a workout (read Hiding).
        I have taught people that have never cast a Spey Rod, right up to Master Certified Casting Instructors preparing for their Two hand Certification.
        Several of those now own one and one has now purchased a 5-6 trout Spey as well !!!.
        I have fished Skagit lines with sink tips swinging flies for trout and on lakes casting Skandi and long belly lines.
        I regularly fish the rocks and beaches for a variety of salt water species so I have really tested it out.

        So what is my impression overall.
        Anyone that owns or has cast one of your rods knows the attention to detail and the quality of your rods they are beautiful.
        To me they have to be more than that, they are a tool of my trade so they have to perform.
        A rod has to cast smoothly and effortlessly all day, it has to handle a variety of lines leaders and flies.
        I have to be able to teach short casts to very long casts.
        It has to be tough and the 6 pieces makes it easy to travel with.
        Most importantly it has to be fun to fish.

        The Epic DH13 7-8 does all of the above with ease.
        From the first cast you FEEL the progressive action as the rod loads, but it is in the unload where the magic happens.
        The DH13 7-8 unloads quickly and recovers quickly but without the jarring feeling of some rods allowing you to make nice loops with very little tip bounce.
        I love casting this rod, I love fishing this rod and I love the smile on peoples faces when they cast it.

        Thanks Carl to you and the team for producing such an amazing rod.
        I highly recommend it.

        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."
