Epic 590C Carbon Fibre Fly Rod Blank

  • Availability: In Stock Ready to Fish.

Product Description

All Epic rod blanks come with rod sock and tube.

The world’s smartest 5 wt fly rod blank

Advanced, High Performance Freshwater Fly

The Epic 590C is an extremely light responsive 5 weight fly rod blank designed specifically for dry fly, emerger and light nymph fishing for trout of all sizes.

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.

SnakeBelly
Not sanded and not unsanded. Our SnakeBelly™ finish is produced by a unique radial production process. 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 very durable.

Sure Fit Ferule

Break a tip? we’ve got you covered.  This ferule system is so precise that parts interchange between models. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section to the manufacturer or outlet where you purchased from. Breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part.


Benefits of our Sure Fit Ferrule system:

  • A secure positive fit eliminates knocks
  • Smoother energy transfer
  • Eliminates flat spots
  • Non slip – reduces twisting due to torque
  • Internally reinforced ferrules – eliminates ferrule fracture
  • Durable & scratch resistant
  • Gets better with use
  • Precise fit, sections are interchangeable, in the case of tip breakages replacement sections can be sent out immediately. No need to return the blank for a fit.

Light
The 590C fly rod blank weighs an astoundingly light 36 grams (1.2oz) 10% lighter than our previous model and lighter than equivalent blanks by Scott or Sage.

Nano Tough
Our use of Silica nano-resin makes for a very tough, lightweight and extremely responsive blank.

As good as it gets
EpicC (Carbon) series fly rod blanks are high performance fishing tools. The lockup point develops in the top third of the blank, and although recovery rates are fast, the Epic C series would best be described as Mid Flex (Orvis) or Medium fast (Sage). They are light without sacrificing strength

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 fiber support in the zero/longitudinal axis and does away with traditional scrim based construction.

Silica nano-resin. Super Low Resin Systems.

Utilizing 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 fiber boasts the highest tensile and compressive strength of any fiber 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 Fiber Alignment.

Fiber alignment along the length of any blank is critical. Even the smallest deviation in fiber 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.
