My go-to fly rod
I was finally able to spin this one up with a carbon fiber grip and Snake Brand guides. This rod is butter. It casts so easily and far. For a glass rod, it shoots line very well. Casting is accurate and consistent and setting the hook and landing a big largemouth is like a religious experience. Great work (again) Epic!!
Amazing Epic 888
This rod handles a line of 9 as effortlessly as an 8; the line stays high, the loop is tight, the shoot is endless. I launched a huge streamer with no problem. I can't wait to test it in real conditions in a terrain worthy of this rod. Fred www.hourc.com
My favorite weight - now in glass!
One of my favorite rods is an 8 weight because of its versatility; largemouth bass, pike, steelhead, salmon, large trout, redfish, and bonefish have all been caught. That’s what prompted me to build this 8 weight but I had no idea how sleek it would turn out. The slate blank just “pops” with blue-ish grey power. The weight of the rod is not light or heavy....it’s just right. That translates into a rod that feels very stout but casts are easy and accurate. This is definitely a blank where beauty meets utility. Epic hit the ball out of the park with this one and the 888 should truly be THE standard in bigger game rods.
Good looking blank. For fiberglass, it is surprisingly fast. When the rod is ready, I use it for streamer fishing.
A bit early for a performance report, but my new 888 blank looks and feels the goods for it's intended use as a 'light' saltwater rod. Flawless, arrow straight blank with perfect ferrule fit and judging from how it 'feels' assembled, it will fit the bill perfectly. A few projects to complete first, but it will be ready for our Summer.
