Trouble, meet El Bandido, the Epic Reference Series 10wt fiberglass fly rod
One tough customer. At 8' for a 10# the Epic Bandit is the perfect weapon for wrangling tough species like Pike, Bass, Snook, Baby Tarpon and Musky. Titanium stripper guides and alloy reel seats mean the Bandit is a saltwater beast.
The Bandit is an amazing casting machine and about as much fun as you can have with your pants on.
A specialist tactical fly rod, the Bandit makes short work of large species in confined situations and is great for Kayak fishing.

Built Epic Tough Epic glass rods are incredibly tough. Our S2 FastGlass II has a far higher strength-to-weight ratio than Carbon fibre (graphite) rods. Epic FastGlass rods can endure more acute and severe bends than the equivalent Carbon fibre or even regular S2 glass, tip sections are stronger and far less susceptible to breakages due to high-sticking and problematic rod angles when pulling against load.
