That must have been my forth or fifth kit, and although a little trickier (you will be working closer to ferrules on one or two guides), the results are so rewarding! That baby is going to the Amazon soon to be matched against some peacock bass (the mid-sized ones ;). Great rod and action, just waiting for a 7 or 8wt on the same concept...
Epic 586G-6 Travel Rod
I really enjoyed building up this rod. I decided to change the reel seat from the standard one supplied with the kit for no other reason than I wanted to try something different and have the up locking ring fixed to simplify the reel attachment process. My preference would have been to use the Epic triangular reel seat but this is now restricted to custom built rods. Super fast delivery, as usual, and great customer service from Adam who responded to my queries quickly and with good advice. I'm looking forward to trying the rod out when Australia gets the vaccination rate up and we can start moving around again. The packlight and an e-mountain bike seems like the perfect formula for a lot of fun in Tassie if I can get there.
Building the perfect beast - 586 graphene
What a trip- who on earth would start with a 6 piece? I really wanted to build a rod and coupled with my bike packing obsession the Packlight fitted the bill and I finally took the plunge. Said package arrived in good time before lockdown, so much so that the epic rod dryer arrived just in good time. The process was tense at times but ultimately very satisfying- rod building that is The process was as described in the book and the supporting videos just confirmed that I was all fingers and thumbs at times I’m pleased with the result the rod casts really well and I’m looking forward to 1 October to put it to the test. Well done Swift team you rock! I will be buying another in the future!
As always, the quality of the components was too notch. I was surprised by how well the rod casts. I built it as a gift for my son but have to confess that after casting it the thought of keeping it for myself did cross my mind.
Epic 686 Rod build
I have just completed building an Epic 686 Fast Glass rod. The build was loads of fun and the kit had excellent instruction and everything one needs to build the rod. The rod looks stunning and I can’t wait to get it onto the water.
