Our rod tube, all Epic.
Yep, because we just can't bear to do what everybody else does we had to put the Epic spin on our rod tubes.
Hand rolled from cross weave fiberglass, our Epic tube is incredibly strong yet decidedly feather like in the weight department. Finished in a tough clear gloss top coat.
It will not ding & dint like the other guys el-cheapo extruded aluminium tubes, nor is it so damn noisy! - these babies can roll and slide around in the back of your truck without you having to turn up the Creedence to drown out the din. (Creedence should be on full V's regardless btw)
Our hand fitted aircraft grade Aluminium end caps are deep anodized then laser engraved with our classic Epic logo. Why you may ask? - because it's cool we reply.
The kicker - you know those crap rubber washers found under tube end caps? - the ones that probably aren't there anymore because they got squeezed out, perished and split from screwing on the end cap?
We don't have 'em.
Our exceedingly clever designer gave this seemingly minor problem a lot of thought and put together end caps with a recessed rubber O-ring - you know, just like O-rings are supposed to work…
Now, wouldn't you have though someone would have come up with that before. Soon, everyone will be doing this... (Thank you Stephen)
Pay attention up there in the back!

Robert - USA
I just recently received my 8wt fast glass rod and reel combo. The ordering process, shipment communication, build quality, and packaging care have been first class. I can’t wait to get out and try this new rig on the water. Thanks for your commitment to excellence.

A Real Performer
Nice feeling rod took it to NZ in January and it performed really well. When I needed soft presentations it was perfect but still handled everything else. It was great to be able to pack it down and put it in my back pack for those long walk ins.
Chris - Montana
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 none and I will gladly purchase from them again.
