*We are fortunate enough to receive many wonderfull reviews for our fly rods and they all mean a great deal to us. When a rod is reviewed by an angler & caster with real depth of experience it's something special.
"One word sums up my new 370 FastGlass, badass, if in fact that's a word... The best way I can describe it is, "where tech meets tradition." Never had I anticipated the arrival of a new fly rod more, and I currently own two dozen premium rods and have had another few dozen move through my personal inventory over the years. The rod exceeded all expectations and in every way - action, tracking, dampening, aesthetics, components, workmanship, packaging.
Clearly Epic has taken fiberglass rods to the next level
I've owned E-glass, S-glass, and now Unidirectional S-2 Glass. While all have their place, the Epic FastGlass is in a class all by itself as far as overall performance goes. Not truly fast, but faster than my other glass, and in a good way. Casts in tight, but can reach out. Roll-casts well. Haven't seen a weakness yet and don't expect to. Clearly Epic has taken fiberglass rods to the next level. Only problem is I now want more. Having limited my use of glass to small stream fishing in the past, I am now wondering what the right rod could do on my home river?"
