"Gutsy, but graceful"

"Epic of New Zealand has created a niche by making fly rods like no others"

“Lots of rod makers talk about building ‘versatile’ rods, but Epic has actually done it with the 686. Incredibly smooth to cast, great fish-fighting feedback with the choice of materials, high-end construction. The modestly ‘premium’ price should give a lot of other rod manufacturers pause. Add the quick turnaround times for breakage, and Epic is quickly establishing itself as a marquee rod brand.”

~ Kirk Deeter. Editor of Angling Trade, editor-in-chief for TROUT Magazine and an editor-at-large for Field & Stream.

Life Changing - This fly rod is a magnificent achievement
