If James Bond had a fly rod this would be it. Super stealthy in our non-reflective satin SnakeBelly™ finish, the 586G Packlight breaks down into 6 short & very clever sections. You won't know this is a multi-piece rod until you hide it away. It utilises industry-leading Graphene nano resins to help create a lighter, stronger more responsive fly rod.
Designed for adventure
6 piece design allows you to easily fit this rod into your backpack or rucksack. The tube measures 500mm (19.6 inches)Breaking down into 6 pieces and small and compact enough to easily slip down the side of a backpack or rucksack.
Super stealthy in our non-reflective satin SnakeBelly™ finish, the 586G utilises industry-leading Graphene nano resins to help create a lighter, stronger more responsive fly rod.
The performance advantage of Graphene nano resin. Lighter, tougher, more responsive.
Our SnakeBelly™ Satin finish is scratch and chip resistant making for an extremely tough and durable fly rod that is less prone to stress fractures
Each Kit contains:
Our use of Graphene nano-resin makes for an extremely tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank. 5% stronger than standard carbon/epoxy resin construction.
Stealthy Satin SnakeBelly™ Finish
Our Satin SnakeBelly™ finish is produced by a unique radial production process. SnakeBelly™ delivers the toughest exterior finish possible with a super low sheen satin finish.
Sure Fit Ferule™
Break a tip? we've got you covered. This ferule system is so precise that parts interchange between models. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section to the manufacturer or outlet where you purchased from. Breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part.
Epic G Series fly rod blanks are high performance fishing tools. The lockup point develops in the top third of the blank, and although recovery rates are fast, the Epic G series would best be described as Mid Flex and Medium fast. They are light without sacrificing strength.

100% Carbon Construction.
The carbon helix core boasts true 100% carbon construction. These blanks contain no scrim.
100% Uni-directional material - Non Woven.
Super light-weight construction and superior strength. Non woven Uni-directional material is up to 40% stronger than traditional woven material commonly used by fly rod manufacturers. A non woven fiber can achieve 100% of its tensile and compressive loading. Unidirectional material affords super light weight construction and superior strength.
Carbon Helix Core.
The helical core forms the basis for hoop strength and fibre support in the zero/longitudinal axis and does away with traditional scrim based construction.
Graphene Nano Resin - Super Low Resin Systems.
Utilising materials with resin content up to 30% less than conventional materials, Epic G series blanks are lighter and stronger. Low resin materials help increase bending limits & overall response.
Multi Carbon Construction (Multi modulus).
Using only the highest quality fabrics from USA, Japan and Korea, up to five different grades of carbon are used in each blank. Each type is placed at various parts of the blank to optimize strength and weight. G series ultra high modulus fibre boasts the highest tensile and compressive strength of any fibre in its class.
Internal High Strength Ferrule.
A high strength internal ferrule is placed at each join to provide superior crush and split resistance.
Target Zero Fibre Alignment.
Fibre alignment along the length of any blank is critical. Even the smallest deviation in fibre alignment from the axis of load will greatly reduce the strength of the blank.
Stealthy Snakebelly Satin Finish.
Incredibly tough and scratch resistant

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.
No reaming, no drilling, no sanding. Too Easy.
Building a great custom fly rod is no mean feat, selecting the correct matching components can be an intimidating exercise alone. Then there’s those wraps, the cork and glue...
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.
In addition to the industry leading technology used in each of our blanks, Epic carbon fibre fly rod blanks feature our proprietary ground ferrule system. Each male ferrule is hand ground to perfectly fit the female section of the blank. Female sections are all internally reinforced.
Benefits of our ground ferrule system:
The 586-6G blank weighs an astoundingly light 36 grams (1.2oz) 10% lighter than our previous model and lighter than equivalent blanks by Scott or Sage.
Our use of Silica nano-resin makes for a very tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank.
Epic G (Carbon) series fly rod blanks are high-performance fishing tools. The lockup point develops in the top third of the blank, and although recovery rates are fast, the Epic G series would best be described as Mid Flex (Orvis) or Medium fast (Sage). They are light without sacrificing strength (lighter than the equivalent Sage one).
