Consistently Impeccable Quality

This bamboo rod kit build was my fourth kit from Epic. As with the previous three the quality and fit of the components was impeccable, from the cork to the hardware and most of all the blanks. The bamboo rod (4.6 oz fully built) is heavier feeling than either fiberglass or carbon fiber but it casts amazingly accurately, controllably and with lots of feel. Epic rods are addicting!

A Delight!

A beautiful product. A little more exacting to build than the Boca I recently completed. Be sure to read the supplementary instructions though.It was fun to build and even more fun to use!

Thank You. Merry Christmas and Happy 2020!

Excellent purchasing experience. Won't able able to use the rods until later in 2020. I purchased the PackLite as a retirement gift for my boss, and a bamboo kit for myself. Christmas came early. Of course. The delivery status was informative and up to date. Packages arrived in perfect condition. Jeanie is very helpful with her email, as usual. BTW, I got a PackLite in 2018 and this newly purchased PackLite has a much cooler finish then my 2018. Seriously thinking about getting a new PackLite. (and give my 2018 to my daughter...........)
