    Default Epic fiberglass builds

    Just a couple of builds off my bench in the last couple of weeks. They are on Epic Fast Glass, a new manufacture out of New Zealand. Nice and smooth, accurate and very fast for glass rods.

    The natural glass rod is a 580 in what they call "Nude". It is a 5 weight, 8', 3 piece. Wrapped it in Fish Hawk silk Blue Steel (I think) with black tipping. It's the first rod I got to try my new decals on. I like it, but I'm bias. As usual I turned the insert, Carolina Cherry Burl and turned the handle.

    The Amber looking rod is a 480 in...... duh Amber . It is a 4 weight, 8', 3 piece. Wrapped in Fish Hawk silk Old Copper with black tipping. Walnut insert and reverse half wells handle.

    Both are topped off with Lemke hardware, Snake Brand Universal guides and Struble Amber Agates. Sorry about the sizing, Photobucket isn't playing fair with my limited computer skills.

    Nice blanks and better build. How do they cast post build?

    I've been admiring these Epic blanks and the CTS Quatz ones looking to build them up as a light salt fibreglass rod.

    Gorgeous work! I really like the looks of the Carolina Cherry Burl and the natural glass rod with the blue wraps, very impressive.

    Beautious, Pete!! I love the simplicity. Elegant minimalism on the black tipped wraps.
