    Meet the very lucky Epic 888 FastGlass™ fly rod

    Our mighty 888 was designed specifically for chasing Bonefish but is just at home wrangling big freshwater species like Carp, Pike and monster Muskie too. Given there’s not a flat where the wind doesn’t blow we’ve given the 888 an extra powerful butt section, strong tip and fast recovery rate to help punch a line out into those skinny water breezes.

      S2 FastGlass™ - not your papa’s fiberglass fly rod
      Epic™ blanks are made to exacting standards using a proprietary Unidirectional S2-glass composite. Unlike other fiberglass fly rods, this material features a fully unidirectional fibre layup which aligns fibres longitudinally along the blank where they are most needed. This recipe rolled to our Epic tapers combine silky smooth loading with trophy pulling power that we call FastGlass. The result is an incredibly strong, light and powerful tube with a crisp, precise response.
