686 Fastglass II - perfect Streamer Rod

Like almost all tapers from Epic, this one here is perfect for streamer application on both fresh and saltwater applications. Had fun building this one here as it is one or two classes higher with a 6wt than the builds i do normally. The blank quality is second to none, finish, straightness and ferulle fitting... You cant go wrong if you are looking for a lightweight workhorse. my line recommendations are rio OBS 6wt, SA SBT 6wt or similar.

My go-to fly rod

I own fiberglass 6wt fly rods from 3 rod makers and the Epic rod is hands down the best. The other rods are nice and they do the job very well, but there is just something different about the Epic. My casts are always spot-on. The casting process is smooth like butter, and fighting a fish is a religious experience.

Great fly rods

This is my third Epic build. They've all been great. Super consistent, uniform blanks. I highly recommend them.
