Great product - a combined effort by Epic and C&F Design, it had to be good, and it is. I tried to epoxy on a rod section without turning it and it came out pretty messy so this turner is what you need. The only thing I would change is to add instructions to insert the batteries.
I couldn't speak any higher about my experience with the Swift team, replaced the faulty drying unit without question, the epic rod build was incredible experience, so satisfying, if you are thinking of doing a rod build then Epic, from Swift is a great choice.
Thanks again to the team at Swift for all the advice and quick email responses. Will be doing more builds in the future.
Thanks to everyone at Epic.
I have been dreaming of getting some Epic gear, so when the opportunity arose, I went for it. I bought a Rod turner, a 686 Ready to wrap kit. A Backcountry 5/6 Reel and Glass 6wt Fly line. Very very happy with the service, I thought I'd be cheeky and request the Fly line be Spooled for me. Adam had no hesitation and did not charge for the service and the backing line. These guys are amazing. Best service ever. The products are fantastic and I am loving using the rod and reel now I have finished making it. Cheers guys for everything. You rock.
This made the final stages of wrapping my Epic 3wt an absolute breeze. After applying the epoxy to the wraps I could set each piece of the rod into the turner with the peace of mind that the wraps would turn out perfect. With a 72 hour battery life I could also go to bed and know that I could sleep soundly as the rod turned at a perfect 12rpm. I couldn't be happier with the result.
