The Epic 686 has gained cult status over the past few years and we’ve seen many imitators try to replicate the magic of this fly rod. There is only one – and this is it!
Regarded by industry pro’s and glass aficionados world wide as the best glass 6wt made, the Epic 686 presents beautifully but packs a bad ass attitude. Perfect for tossing big flies, swinging streamers and light saltwater work. The 686 is as strong as an ox, super smooth and extremely versatile.
Epic 686 Fastglass fly rods are made to exacting standards using a proprietary S2 glass composite. This material features a fully unidirectional fiber layup which aligns fibers longitudinally along the blank. The result is an incredibly strong, light and powerful tube with a crisp, precise response. This recipe, rolled to our fast tapers combine silky smooth easy loading with trophy pulling power. We call it FastGlass and it lives up to the name!
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.
