Revised generation two nano-technology. Epic C series are a state of the art fly rod blank. The most sophisticated composite materials and production processes are used in their construction. Proprietary nano-resins, full Helical construction, multi modulus, and unidirectional carbon fibre - We believe this is the most sophisticated fly rod blank available.
Ground ferrule system In addition to the industry leading technology used in each of our blanks, Epic carbon fibre fly rod blanks feature our proprietary SureFit™ground ferrule system. Each male ferrule is hand ground to perfectly fit the female section of the blank. Female sections are all internally reinforced. Sections are so precise they can be swopped out in case of breakages.

Technical: 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 light weight construction and superior strength. Carbon Helix. The helical core forms the basis for hoop strength and fibre support in the zero/longitudinal axis and does away with traditional scrim based construction. Silica nano-resin. Super Low Resin Systems. Utilising materials with resin content up to 30% less than conventional materials, Epic C series blanks are lighter and stronger. Low resin materials help increase bending limits & overall response. 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. All Epic blanks are designed and produced to ensure all fiber is aligned as near perfect as can be with the load Two pack Marine Grade Paint system. Epic C series blanks are finished with a clear marine grade two pack paint system for extra protection and toughness.
This is my second 411 that I've built; one for a customer and one for myself. The popularity of micro spey rods/trout spey rods, whatever you want to call them, has exploded but I haven't quite cast a rod as smooth and effortless as this one. The combination of light weight, power, and fishibility is the whole package. Much like the entire lineup of Epic rods, the control of line is incredible whether you're trying to cast a tight loop directly into the wind or open it up for streamer fishing.
So far, I've had a 300 and 330 gr. skagit and scandi head on this model and both work very well paired with a textured running line. For my needs, 100+ feet casts aren't necessary and the length of this rod helps mend the floating running line. However, it's capable of those distances, no doubt.
If you're in the market for a trout spey, don't overlook this rod. Even if you're not in the market for one, get one and don't pass up the opportunity to have a ton of fun. Highly recommended!
This DH11 is amazing !
Here is a light two handed rod for trout and graylings !!
the perfect line is a 263 grains for a 30 feet long head.
The blank offer delicate presentation and with no surprise a good amount of power if needed.
Perfect for a not too windy day.
Thanks Epic team !
