The Swift Fly Fishing Company 890C Carbon Fiber fly rod blank Review

Both small and big flies…

Oh what a rod. :) My friend C Hörgren built this for me and and what a job he did and the rod is crazy nice. It’s incredible. With a long belly line (tested loop opti reach #7) I think I’ll could present a size 12 dry fly, almost as as well as on my 2 piece #6 rod (Loomis GLX Classic) . With a heavier line on the #8, my thoughts is that I will be able to present pike flies. The rod has that capacity. So on the next trip to the Swedish highlands, this will be one of my rods to bring. If not the trout and grayling ate on the mood, I’ll will find some pikewater. It’s super extra great! ( I have the #10 already, but that’s my pike rod) . ;) (Photo from making with wet epoxy).

An impressively engineered mid-heavy weight rod

I’m always looking for a great 8 weight rod that can finesse a large nymph or smaller streamer on the flats (carp and bonefish) but can muscle out a large, heavy dredging streamer on the river for smallmouth...and to do both styles, well. Having glowing reviews of Epic’s carbon fiber online and having built the 590 for customers in the past, I decided to give the rest of the lineup a try. The blank is of the highest quality that is to be expected by Epic. There is not much more to say about the customer service and the product that hasn’t been said...but I’m going to, anyway. It’s excellent from start to finish. Absolutely flawless construction and fit and finish. The most notable thing about the blank when it arrived was the smaller diameter of the blank compared to most blanks of the same size. It does not feel lacking and is very solid. Then I wondered if the rod would be TOO fast. After the build these concerns were quickly dispersed as the flex profile of this rod is spot-on. It’s fast and the rod loads perfectly for the task at hand. I’ve tried carp and bonefish flies which are thrown with very tight loops into the wind. Or, heavily weighted bass streamers with ease. The loop control is fantastic. Better yet, it’s very intuitive and you don’t have to think about it....it just happens. Which, in my mind, is the true mark of a fantastic rod. I was planning on selling this rod in my shop after I built it but after some experience with it, I signed my name in ink and chose to keep it as a personal rod and to use it as a demo for the public. It’s the perfect combination of power-finesse that is a pleasure to cast and its a remarkable fish-fighting rod.

890C Carbon Fiber Blank

My new 890C blank is smaller in Diameter than my new Atlas 8wt Graphene fly rod from Trident Fishing. This new blank seems lighter and stiffer than the Atlas and should by most responsive. Putting Ceracoil stripping and Titanium single foot guides on. Should be a light all day caster without and fatigue.

Epic 890 Carbon Fibre blank

Ordering the blank was quite easy and the shipping was really quick, only taking about 9 days to arrive on the west coast USA from New Zealand. I've begun the build process and am eager to use the rod for bull trout and hopefully some flats fishing in the near future. Thus far it has been a very good experience communicating and ordering from Swift. Many thanks to all involved.
