    Our Epic Ready to Wrap Rod Kit makes life easy - we’ve done much of the hard work for you. The kit contains all the components, glues, rod finish and instructions you’ll need to build your own unique custom Epic fly rod.

    The components in our Epic Ready to Wrap Rod Kit have all been specifically designed to work together. Each cork grip is ported to receive our Epic reel seats perfectly. Easily assembled step by step. 

    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.

Epic 4wt Combo Kit

This is my fourth build and one cannot be more impressed with the quality of the Epic Build Kits. The resultant rod is so sweet to cast and matches perfectly to the Back Country Reel and Epic Glassline. Thank you to the team at Epic John Scott
