Finally, here is your opportunity to get your hands on one of these gems before they sell out. These custom built Epic Fiberglass Fly Rods are not your grandfather’s fiberglass. You can learn more about these work of arts, all hand built by Jussi Stojakka in Finland below.
Here’s what Epic says about the 5 Weight Fiberglass Fly Rod Blank:
The 580 is super versatile, super smooth and just slick as all hell. Our personal favorite, the Epic 580 is the perfect dry fly rod.
Our Epic™ 580 is crafted from Unidirectional S2 Glass, this material is stiffer and stronger than e-glass or standard s-glass. The 580 is a super smooth and extremely versatile fly rod blank.
All Epic “Glass” rods are produced from industry leading 8 micron Unidirectional S-2 Glass. This next generation fiber is specifically engineered for fly rod production and features 8 micron fibers developed and produced in the USA. These fibers are almost half the diameter of other unidirectional materials, resulting in tighter, more precise and stronger fly rods.
SnakeBelly™ delivers the toughest exterior finish possible. After production, blanks are first painted and then clear coated. This two step process produces blanks that are incredibly scratch resistant and durable.
Break a tip? we’ve got you covered This ferule system is so precise that breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section.
All rods come with rod sock and tube.
