Fiberglass Fly Rod Review, the Epic 580 Scientific Anglers take an Epic for a blast - The Swift Fly Fishing Company - Epic Fly Rods

We designed a blank, sent it to George Minculete, George made a rod, Sent it to Cameron Mortenson, Cameron sent it to Scientific Anglers, Scientific anglers gave it the double thumbs up - it's the circle of life man.

But here's the really interesting bit. The Scientific Anglers Expert Distance line is the line I most often use for my casting - it was also the line I used to make "Casts that Catch Fish"

We used that same line as a "baseline" line to develop the entire Epic Range.  Nice to see that born out out in the SA review!
