All Epic FastGlass® 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 micron fibers developed and produced for us in the USA. This material applied to our Epic tapers delivers tighter, lighter and more precise fly rods.
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.
my first foray into building a rod was with this kit. The kit made it very easy and enjoyable to build the rod, making it so that i want to build another.
i am very much looking forward to my next epic rod build.
Thank you for enabling this new obsession/passion.
After multiple builds, the two 1090’s currently being crafted are coming together amazingly well. While still a novice rodmaker, the quality of the components help my burgeoning skill set craft an end product that one can be proud to use or gift to someone special. These two will be put to the test the first week of August on the Marmelos River in the Amazonas State in northwestern Brazil.
I purchased the 1090c after already having the 890c kit. Very happy with the blanks. I will shortly purchase a 590c or the Graphene kit. The 10wt has come up a treat, looking forward to casting at Longtail tuna this season.
