    Epic Fiberglass Fly Rod Blank
  • Why You'll love it

    The most thorough and complete fly rod building kits on the market.

    Each Epic Ready To Wrap Kit contains everything you need to make a great fly rod. The very best fly rod building components available, all designed to fit together seamlessly. No Reaming, No Drilling, No Sanding - all Epic.

    FastGlass II
    All Epic "Glass" rods are produced from industry leading 8 micron Unidirectional S-2 Glass. This next generation fiber is specifically engineered for fly rod production and features 8 micronfibers developed and produced in the USA. These fibres are almost half the diameter of other unidirectional materials, resulting in tighter, more precise and stronger fly rods. 

    SnakeBelly
    SnakeBelly™ delivers the toughest exterior finish possible. After production, blanks are first painted and then clear coated. This two step process produces blanks that are incredibly scratch resistant and durable.

    SureFit Ferule
    Break a tip? we've got you covered  This ferule system is so precise that breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section.

    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.
