Fly Fishing - Unboxing the Boca Grande 12wt Fiberglass Fly Rod

December 05, 2019 1 min read

A Heavyweight Fiberglass Fly Rod - without the heavy weight.

Epic FastGlass® - Classy, glassy and an absolute powerhouse. The mighty Boca Grande is an incredibly tough and resilient 12 weight fiberglass fly rod.

Let's be be frank here. 12 weight graphite rods tend to be as stiff as broomsticks, far from enjoyable to cast and get one under serious load and they're prone to exploding. (Carbon fiber experiences what is technically termed "Catastrophic failure" - Glass fiber does not)

Epic Ambassador Norbert Renuad is a monster Pike specialist here he unboxes our mighty 12 Boca Grande.
