      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 lightweight construction and superior strength.

      Carbon Helix.

      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. 

      Silica nano-resin. Super Low Resin Systems.

      Utilising materials with resin content up to 30% less than conventional materials, Epic C 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 types of carbon are used in each blank. Each type is placed at various parts of the blank to optimize strength and weight. 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. All Epic blanks are designed and produced to ensure all fiber is aligned as near perfect as can be with the load

    • Why You'll love it

      It's just so damn nice to cast

      Want a Spey but don't want to wrestle a 13 footer - this is the Trout Spey Rod for you. It will handle just about anything and is very easy to load up and cast your heart out. Fun with a capital F!

      Revised generation two nano-technology.
      Epic C series are a state of the art fly rod blank. The most sophisticated composite materials and production processes are used in their construction. Proprietary nano-resins, full Helical construction, multi-modulus, and unidirectional carbon fibre - We believe this is the most sophisticated fly rod blank available

      Ground ferrule system
      In addition to the industry-leading technology used in each of our blanks, Epic carbon fibre fly rod blanks feature our proprietary SureFit™ ground ferrule system. Each male ferrule is hand ground to perfectly fit the female section of the blank. Female sections are all internally reinforced. Sections are so precise they can be swapped out in case of breakages.

    DH 411

    I made up the rod from the excellent kit. Instructions are clear and detailed. I was somewhat surprised not to find information on painting on alignment dots at the ferrules. The rod is superb and a joy to use. I have a weakness for fly rods and with over 60 years of fly fishing behind me , have owned a few. The 411 is easily up there with the best.

    11 foot 4 weight Trout Switch

    Just received the kit and it exceeded my expectations, just like the 13 foot 7 weight Spey rod I had purchased over a year ago. The actions were very similar - very smooth, progressive and quick recovery. No sloppiness in the tip at all. Fast shipping to Cleveland, Ohio thru DHL. Excellent communication and packaging. Swift is a top shelf company to do business with. If you were hesitating for any reason - don't.

    Wonderful Experience!

    My overall experience in buying your product for my husband was wonderful. Your website was easy to use and navigate. I also appreciated the continuous delivery updates - and it arrived in plenty of time for Christmas. My husband is putting his rod together now and having a great time - it is just challenging enough for him for his first rod build. Thank you.
