These are the smoothest, most beautiful fly rods you’ll ever cast. Purposefully designed and exquisitely handcrafted the 476 Reference is light in the hand and an absolute pleasure to cast; your absolute delight is guaranteed.
FastGlass II™ All Epic "Glass" rods are produced from industry-leading 8 micron Unidirectional S-2 Glass. This next-generation fiber is specifically engineered for fly rod production and features 8-micronfibers developed and produced in the USA. These fibres are almost half the diameter of other unidirectional materials, resulting in tighter, more precise and stronger fly rods.
SnakeBelly™ SnakeBelly™ delivers the toughest exterior finish possible. After production, blanks are first painted and then clear coated. This two-step process produces blanks that are incredibly scratch resistant and durable.
SureFit Ferule™ Break a tip? we've got you covered This ferule system is so precise that breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section.
Built Epic Tough Epic glass rods are incredibly tough. Our S2 FastGlass II has a far higher strength-to-weight ratio than Carbon fibre (graphite) rods. Epic FastGlass rods can endure more acute and severe bends than the equivalent Carbon fibre or even regular S2 glass, tip sections are stronger and far less susceptible to breakages due to high-sticking and problematic rod angles when pulling against load.

I purchased the Reference 4 wt 476 FastGlass rod for fishing small and medium creeks in eastern Pennsylvania. I love the action; it’s smooth as silk, accurate, and yet has plenty of power to handle larger fish. I’ve had no difficulty accurately casting 50 to 60 feet, even with moderate wind. Most of the fish I catch are in that distance range anyway, so that’s not a problem. I was so impressed with the rod so much that I bought a 686 FastGlass ready to wrap kit, which I recently finished.
The Reference 4wt 476 FastGlass Fly Rod is well finished and balances well. It is faster than most glass fly rods but similar in flex to a mid flex graphite rod. It casts well and has excellent fish fighting properties. I would recommend this rod and hope to use it on some larger fish.
