No Bananas! - Epic Progressive Crisp Precise Fibreglass fly rod blanks

Yes we have no Bananas!

December 09, 2014 1 min read

Great shots from Markus Haldin of You Name It in Finland.  These guys are big supporters of our Epic brand and have been building some really tricked out rods.

As you can see in these shots from Markus, Epic glass is likely unlike any glass fibre blank you've encountered - they don't bend like bananas. The Epic profiles are decidedly progressive, crisp & precise, and are not parabolic.

If a noodle is what you are after you might be best to look elsewhere ;-)
