  • 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.

370 FastGlass Rod Building Kit

Very high quality components, better cork than I've seen on some real high end rods. The kit comes with everything you need and if you are a beginner the booklet with instructions and tips is very valuable. One small minus and it's a very small one. No hook keeper. Some people do not put them on their build but I'm old school and like one on mine.

Epic 370 rod kit

While daunting at first, once I got into it I found the building fun and very rewarding. Other than some masking tape and an India ink pen, everything I needed was in the kit. The instructions are very thorough and I didn’t find myself looking externally for extra info. I was blown away with the finish I was able to get. I’m really glad I built my own rod, it’s something I’d thought about for ages. If you’re considering it, just do it, you won’t be disappointed.

First-time rod builder would do a cartwheel, except he might hurt himself

I'm retired and building my own high-quality fly rod was on my bucket list. No more. I bought the Epic 370 model and it was a dream to build. I did a fair amount of reading how-to books and viewing videos. This is not a task for the impatient. The kit from Swift Fly Fishing was first rate and the 50-page "build book" was invaluable. Cripes, it was even written with flair and humor. Generous amounts of all epoxies. And I asked that the spine on each piece be marked, and it was. Great service, great follow-up. I have already recommended this kit to friends. Mike R. Clovis, California

3WT - 370 Readyto Wrap kit

Kit was delivered to my USA address very fast. Everything in the kit fit beautifully in the box and fit beautifully into a completed rod. I was going to buy the blank and tube separately but the Ready to Wrap kit was much more cost effective. Extremely satisfied with my purchase.
