The Epic brand is most certainly appropriate!
The rod, reel and line all performed exceptionally well on my first backpacking trip with them. Super light weight and perfect for my backcountry trip.
Fantastic 5 wt pack fly rod
You can not tell that you are fishing a 6 piece fly rod. The 586-6 G Packlight Fly Rod performs as wells any 2 or 4 piece rod anywhere. It is light, crisp but not stiff. The rod sends all the signals from the line to the angler and the whole casting stroke becomes intuitive. It is truly a joy to cast. And at 8 1/2 feet it covers all the bases. It also balances beautifully with a 5/6 Backcountry reel. Absolutely EPIC.
Precision superlight fly rod
I wanted to fish this rod before leaving a review. I own (to many ) high end fly rods, Sage, Asquith, Scott Sector etc, and bought initially from Epic cause I wanted a glass rod, but was so impressed with that (5 and 8 wt) that I thought I'd give the graphite travel rod a try. Lake trout fishing yesterday: -Tiny before assembly, easy to fit in a backpack -Really light, was fishing a 6 weight SA Ando floating line on another rod, so switched over wondering how the Epic would handle it.. absolutely perfectly! - Fabulous short to midrange, really accurate, an absolute pleasure -Long (80-90ft) casts to rising fish - windspeed 10mph, so a calm day- easy! - I'd like to fish it on a windy day, but feel the rod has more than enough backbone to handle this! In all, I'm exceptionally pleased with my purchase, and with my good fortune in having found this company, every product I've bought from them has exceeded all expectations, communications have been friendly and prompt, I really hope the company will be around forever!

Feels amazing and wouldn't think it a 6 piece! Cant wait to get it on stream as only given it a dry run due to covid

Casting smooth and on target, the 586 Packlight is smooth and light and very resposive indeed. Many thanks team, a great experience all round and a terrific fly rod.
