Studio Built 580 Fastglass II
Even better than I expected, and I expected a lot. A thing of beauty, a joy to cast, and the real reason I wanted it, an absolute joy to fight fish with. I fish in tight quarters, on a spring creek with skinny waters and big browns, so I needed something that would enable me to cast accurately, and lay down flies softly to spooky fish. And at the same time, have the backbone to keep a big fish away from the snags. Done and done.. And I have the video evidence, if you are interested. The most fun I have had with my clothes on.
The rod is simply great. I love it. I do not have a big knowledge of rods but I like feeling of the rod casting and fighting with fishes. Cosmetic is fantastic. Also communications are so good. I am highly recommend this rod!! Thanks everything!!
Small rivers, big, fiesty bows and that EPIC bend
What do you do when you pick up your brand spanking new 580 just in time for the opening of the back country season here in NZ? You choose a river for your new rod! Nick my fishing bud and I fished our Epic's side by side (a 480 and 580) on a small but very productive small river, and... sweet Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Still a little early for delicate dry fly presentation we threw tungsten/double tungsten and a bulky strike indicator with out a care in the world. This taper has so much back bone it's not funny. Trevor rolled an amazing rod and cannot fault his meticulous artistry. Thanks mate, your eye for detail is above and beyond. I wanted a presentation rod and I got a freakin' Mona Lisa! Satisfaction level is through the roof. This was a 40th birthday present from my family to me and will be a gift that keeps giving. You feel the strike, you set the hook and you get that sweet ass bend. Better than a cake with candles ;)
The rod performed beautifully matched wit the epic backcountry reel it is now one of my favourite rods
