The Swift Fly Fishing Company Reference 8wt 888 FastGlass Fly Rod Review

The Goldilocks of Fly Rods

I purchased a Reference 888 8 wt. I have owned and cast many rods. This is the one that feels just right long and short. Don’t be fooled about this being a glass rod. It’s a powerful rod with feeling. The build quality is impressive. Again it’s just right. The Goldilocks of fly rods.

Customer service

I am mind blown. Not only is the rod amazing, but after I had an issue with a damaged section of my brand new rod, I contacted Epic and was treated like a real person who was jist trying to get back on the water. Within jist a few days they responded, resolved and mailed my my replacement parts. That kind of respect and customer service is second to non and I will gladly purchase from them again.

Reference 8wt 888

Great product and service. My third rod from Epic and all have been fantastic. Have yet to do much fishing with the Reference but really looking forward to putting it through its paces. Eight out of eight stars!
