Awesome rod, super fun to build
I have built a few "cheap" rods and was honestly skeptical about the higher cost for a ready to wrap kit. I couldn't have been more wrong! The kit came in record time, the directions were super easy to follow and taught me new techniques and the quality couldn't be higher! I am stoked about this awesome rod and I can't wait to get on the water with it.
It Does Everything!
I could tell after the first few casts that I was going to enjoy this rod for a long time. Since building my rod I've had a chance to introduce it to my local super brushy spring creek a few times and it's amazing. It's a perfect balance of power and flex, I love the gentle action and how smooth the glass transitions yet turn the flies over so easily. I've thrown a few different rigs just to see how they felt and it performed flawlessly. It has enough muscle to turn over heavy streamers, bh nymphs, and droppers but has the flex and crisp response to delicately place dries right where I wanted nice and softly. Then once a fish is on the amount of bend while playing even some of the smaller fish kept them tight all the way to the net. I can see myself using this rod in so many different situations. Excellent rod I love it! The Kit was very well put together and the instructions were easy to follow with plenty of additional materials for future projects. I can't wait for my next one!
Once again, I was very impressed with Epic! This Packlight rod arrived in a timely manner and was exactly what I was expecting. The blank was the olive color and wrapped with blue silk and an inlay on each guide. It came out beautifully and the responsiveness of the rod is what I have come to expect from an Epic fiberglass blank. Epic blanks are by far my favorite to build on and I will be back again and again!
Packlite - new favourite rod
Can't rate this kit highly enough. Well thought out with clear instructions and high quality components; I was able to get beautifully clear wraps and a fantastic finished product which says a lot for the kit. Cannot wait for the season to open so I can throw this in my backpack and hike into the mountains!
I purchased the Ready to Wrap kit for the 4wt Packlight in the Salsa color. I purchased it for a upcoming trip into the Sierras and waited a little too close to the actual trip. The Epic team did a great job in fulfilling my order and getting it shipped out to me as soon as they could and the kit arrived just in time! Cheers for awesome customer service! The kit itself is very well stocked and the components are top notch and beautifully made. This rod casts buttery smooth and fighting and landing fish on it is a blast! I look forward to purchasing another Epic rod in the future! Mahalo nui!
