  • Specifications

    Taper: Medium / Fast
    Action: Medium Fast  / Mid Flex
    Lockup point: Top third
    Resonant Frequency: 3.3 Hz
    Material: 57msi Carbon Blend
    Core: 100% Carbon Helix Core
    Pieces: 4
    Action Angle: 70 degrees

    • 100%  Carbon Construction.
      The carbon helix core boasts true 100% carbon construction. These blanks contain no scrim.
    • 100% Uni-directional material - Non-Woven.
      Super light-weight construction and superior strength. Non woven Uni-directional material is up to 40% stronger than traditional woven material commonly used by fly rod manufacturers.  A non-woven fiber can achieve 100% of its tensile and compressive loading. Unidirectional material affords super lightweight construction and superior strength.
    • 100% Carbon Helix Core
      A 100% helical core forms the basis for hoop strength and fibre support in the zero/longitudinal axis and does away with traditional scrim based construction. 
    • Multi Carbon Construction (Multi modulus).
      Using only the highest quality fabrics from USA, Japan and Korea, up to five different types of carbon are used in each blank. Each type is placed at various parts of the blank to optimize strength and weight. Ultra-high modulus fibre boasts the highest tensile and compressive strength of any fibre in its class.
    • Internal High Strength Ferrule.
      A high strength internal ferrule is placed at each join to provide superior crush and split resistance. 
    • Target Zero Fibre Alignment.
      Fibre alignment along the length of any blank is critical. Even the smallest deviation in fibre alignment from the axis of load will greatly reduce the strength of the blank.

The 590C ? This Magic Wand

the 590C is a magic wand for the fly fisherman who loves carbon fiber. 1- remarkable manufacturing. 2- Versatile action for dry fly and nymph. 3- Fast and flexible in roll cast. 4- Whip, a beautiful loop; wide or narrow. Conclusion: a very wise choice that is a credit to Epic. My regret, not to find in France a distributor for Epic. Fortunately, the internet fills this gap. the company Epic is reliable for the relations, without bad surprise for the manufacture, and very reliable for the delay, between 3 and 5 weeks. Frankly, for such good quality, the wait is a reward, when we hold in our hand this magic wand. Didier Teissière France
