Epic Graphite Fly Rod

The new Nano-Tech Generation II Carbon Fibre Fly Rods

While there's lots of clever tech in these new designs making them lighter and stronger, the feature that fly anglers will get the most benefit from is our new ground ferrule system. 

This new ferrule design combines the benefits of both slip over and spigot ferrule designs. This combination makes for a very durable joint that is extremely tough, transfers power smoothly and eliminates flat spots inherent with conventional ferrule designs.

Most importantly these ferrules are so precise that if you bust a rod tip (or any section) we can send out a replacement tip or section almost immediately  Gone are the days when you had to return a broken rod to the factory to effect a repair and wait weeks for it's return.

Our aim is to turn around a replacement section within 48 hrs of being notified of any breakages - regardless of where you are in the world.

These new banks now feature in all Studio Built C series fly rods and carbon fibre Ready to Wrap Fly Rod Kits

Epic C series are a state of the art fly rod blank. The most sophisticated composite materials and production processes are used in their construction. Proprietary nano-resins, full Helical construction, multi modulus, and unidirectional carbon fibre - We believe this is the most sophisticated fly rod blank available

The Epic Action.

The lockup point develops in the top third of the blank, and although recovery rates are fast (faster than the Scott Radian for example) the Epic C series would best be described as Medium Fast in action. Epic C Series blanks are light without sacrificing strength.

Introducing the Ground Ferrule System.

In addition to the industry leading technology used in each of our blanks, our new Epic carbon fibre fly rod blanks feature our proprietary ground ferrule system. Each male ferrule is hand ground to perfectly fit the female section of the blank. Female sections are all internally reinforced.

Benefits of our ground ferrule system:

  • A secure positive fit eliminates knocks
  • Smoother energy transfer
  • Eliminates flat spots
  • Non slip - reduces twisting due to torque
  • Internally reinforced ferrules - eliminates ferrule fracture
  • Durable & scratch resistant
  • Gets better with use
  • Precise fit, sections are interchangeable, in the case of tip breakages replacement sections can be sent out immediately. No need to return the blank for a fit.

Light

The 590 C blank weighs an astoundingly light 36 grams (1.2oz) 10% lighter than our previous model.

Nano Tough

Our use of Silica nano-resin makes for a very tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank.

    At the heart of each of our Carbon Fibre fly rods is what we believe to be the most sophisticated fly rod blank made.

    • 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
      A 100% 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, different types of carbon are used in each blank. Each type is placed at various parts of the blank to optimize strength and weight. 
    • 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.
