The Swift Fly Fishing Company Reference 5wt 590G Carbon Fiber Fly Rod Review


Excellent rod, plenty of power in the rod and good fighting power. Great rod, lots of fun! I recommend getting the 5wt epic line, the two go hand in hand. Thanks a lot team for a great product!

590G and swift srevice

Recently I was in the market for a new client Rod I couldn’t decide between the 590G and the 690G so after a wee chat with the guys and girls at swift they sent me both to sort out my dilemma… I settled on the 590G as I am a dry fly guy . It had everything I needed , good backbone , lite to handle and a nice presentation . Can’t say any more about it for now because for me proof in the fishing and there is a bit of that to be done . Thanks to Carl, Adam and co for hooking me up with chance to trial these rods . Great service and a pleasure to deal with. Julian Peters Mataura Valley Trout Safaris Gore NZ

I make excuses to use this rod

This is my favorite rod. I have had it for over a year now with lots of fishing with it. I find the action smooth and accurate and light. Its a pleasure to use. The only problem is that I make excuses to take this rod out in situations where one of my other rods would be better suited. I just love casting this rod and prefer it. Its super versatile at 5wt and I find that It handles the wide range of fishing I do, small streams, small fish and big rivers and big fish really well. This is by far the best fishing purchase I have made. Cheers Epic!

Epic 590G

Customer Service: Fantastic. Adam, George, and Carl answered all my e- mails in a timely fashion and answered all my questions. Epic 590G: This is a great looking rod. It just feels right. It oozes quality and by all appearances, is a durable rod as well. Casting: I am a beginning to intermediate caster. I think the first word that comes to mind is smooth. There is great feel with rod I was able to throw nice loops with the Epic Glassline Line. The line really shot out of the guides when my timing was right, this was helped by the feel/feedback from the rod. I rate this rod med fast ( right in the middle). I am not an expert in this regard. Fishing: have not fished yet. Rough stretch at work. i can not say enough about the Epic experience. There are other great rods out there. At least from a casting standpoint, Epic is as good, if not better than any other I have cast. I am confident in saying that the Epic price/ quality ratio is easily Number 1. Not even close. Forgot to mention Shipping: Wow! DHL from New Zealand to USA in about a week, with e-mail and notifications every step of the way. Conclusion: Combining the customer service, quality, fantastic casting feel of the 590G, and superb warranty, I am extremely pleased with my purchase. This is definitely not my last Epic rod. Already looking into the 490G. Len New Jersey, USA
