    Advanced, High-Performance Fly. The 690G Graphene fly rod.

    Studio Built™ Custom - Our premium fly rod offering. The pinnacle of craftsmanship and performance.

    The  690G (Graphene) takes it up another notch. Light, tight and super stealthy. You'll be amazed at how light and accurate this fly rod is, helping you form some of the smoothest loops you've ever experienced. The Epic® 690G is a 6 weight custom-tuned, light, and highly responsive fly rod designed as ‘the great all-rounder’. Dries, big terrestrials, weighted nymphs, streamers, woolly buggers and light saltwater work - the 690G is designed to handle it all.

    Super stealthy in our non-reflective satin SnakeBelly™ finish, the 690G utilises industry-leading Graphene nano resins to help create a lighter, stronger more responsive carbon fiber (graphite) fly rod.

    690C build kit

    Well presented product. Very easy to follow build instructions. I’ve enjoyed building this rod through the winter. It won’t be the last kit I buy.

    Can't wait to fish with this rod!

    Bought the 6wt - 690C graphite rod kit recently and have just begun the process of building the finished product. This is the second kit I have purchased and absolutely love the quality of everything provided. Instructions couldn't be better and everything you need to finish the rod is included. I can tell I am going to love this rod just as much as the first one (5wt 590) I built. Working to finish it before an upcoming trip to Idaho.
