Best 5wt. rod
I have used this rod many days over the past two years. It casts nicely with amazing distance. It mends well. I mostly throw a dry fly but have nymped with it many times. Several anglers have asked to cast it as it throws line farther than any other.
Epic 590 C AKA "Black Betty"
I would gladly look anyone in the eye and say this is the best flyrod I have used. Procrastination from flyrod purchase had me with old technology , things have certainly changed this baby has improved casting ability, presentation and accuracy --I have recommended Epic flyrods to friends.

590 C Carbon Fiber Fly Rod
The team at Swift Fly Fishing demonstrated great flexibility and were able to get me my 590 C just in time for my great New Zealand adventure. This rod has great feel and my confort and accuracy got better and better as the days on the river went by. I was fortunate to be able to also try out a 690 C and it also felt great and provided a little more push on some of those windy days. I defnitely recommend picking up one of these rods. You won’t be disappointed.
An Absolute Masterpiece!
Being a Wanaka local and fly fishing guide, I couldn't wait to try a locally made fly rod, even though I didn't know what to expect. I then got my hands on the 590c to test out earlier in the year and quickly fell in love! This rod is what dreams are made of. Silky smooth, freakishly light and incredibly accurate. From presenting delicate dry flies to throwing big streamers into aggressive browns, this rod does it all. The ability to load short casts in tight spaces is priceless, especially when you have no room to swing a cat. All the technical features are ones thing, but you cant go past the fact that its just so damn sexy! Jet black blank and mine paired with a metallic red reel seat, I get goosebumps every time I unscrew the tube and gently slide it out from its silky sleeve. Who would have thought you could get this sensation from a "fly rod" which are now too often mass produced and soulless. So yes, it is the best rod I've ever casted, and yes you should get one, even if its only just to give you the motivation to get it out and cast, regardless of the proximity of water. You will be better for it. Matt Butler - Traveltruly.com
Great fly rod and great company
My 590C is a delight to cast. Workmanship is as good as it gets. Besides the joy of casting and fishing to 590C, it has been an absolute pleasure being involved with Epic’s customer service and all the cool things they do.
