"What can I say, the kit is great. Every thing is top quality from each component, the craftsmanship and even the instructions. I waited a long time to make this purchase and I could not be happier. The service I received both prior and after this purchase was also top rate. I love the concept of being able to buy a high quality kit and being able to build it yourself. Already have plans to purchase another kit for a winter build. Thank you to everyone on the Epic Team." ~ Bradley Reed

I’m really liking the 888 as it looks sweet and I’d put it to use on the flats and at home for bass and pike. I’ve never built a rod before, never wanted too but a tight budget for a built epic is unfortunately out of my grasp. I do wonder how long it takes to build it once you have the kit?
