Swift Epic fly rod blanks are the start point for Epic Standard fly rods. These fly rods include Epic proprietary components and authentic Snake brand guides. Each rod comes with genuine Epic glass rod tube, sock and serial number. These rods are rare and the supply will not last long.
Epic fly rod blanks and Epic fly rods represent top technological advancement in the fly rod industry. More top tier professional fly rod builders use the Epic fly rod blank than any other brand. Swift builds Epics with Zentron S2 Undirectional FastGlass Fiberglass and cutting edge Nano-tech carbon fibre graphite.
Epic fly rod blanks in “FastGlass” S2 glass composite feature a fully unidirectional fiber layup. This means the glass fibers are arranged longitudinally along the blank. The result is an incredibly strong, light and powerful tube with a crisp, precise response. This recipe, rolled to fast tapers combines silky smooth easy loading with trophy pulling power.
These FastGlass blanks come in a number of distinctive colors which are readily identifiable as authentic Swift merchandise. In addition to being simply beautiful, these blanks are tough and fly rods made with them are nearly impossible to break under normal use. This durability is unique among modern fly rods.
