Epic Rose 4wt.
Here is another Epic Fast Glass I am calling "Epic Rose" hot off the bench. Its a 4 wt, 7'6", three piece.

This rod was an obsession. Like the other Epics I have built I had a picture of the rod in my head and couldn't sleep well until I was done with the build. I know what you are thinking....that boy ain't right in the head. You would be correct. Why pink? Not a clue, that's what was stuck in my head. Tried several other colors but kept coming back the the pink silk with two turn black silk trim wraps

Blank: Epic Fast Glass, 476 - Nude
Seat: Lemke LC1 uplocking plated Nickel Silver
Insert: Cherry Burl, turned in-house
Handle: Modified Half Wells. Turned in-house
Agate: Pink Agate from Joe Arguello
Guides: Universal Snake Brand
Wraps: Fish Hawk silk from Acid Rods.
Decal: Decal Connection

Thanks for looking,

Wow! Clean and classy. I wouldn't have thought of the pink silk but it is quite subtle. Beautiful grip and seat as well.

Classy build! Very nice thread work. The pink is not something I would have willingly chose, but you made it work. I'd fish it.
