Epic 476 Packlight 40% OFF


REG. $799.00

HEADHUNTERS SAYS We are proud to be a dealer for Epic Fastglass fly rods built by the crew at Swift Fly Fishing in New Zealand. These fiberglass rods have redefined the casting and performance characteristics associated with fiberglass rod construction. These are not “niche” tools… they are daily drivers. The Epic 476-5 Packlight is our favorite backpacking/travel rod. It generates great line speed and can handle big fish. The combination of ultralight rod and case make it perfect for travel in the backcountry.

This rod is an 7′ 6″ 4 weight in Tangerine Dream color. Image is of actual rod.

Built Epic Tough
Epic glass rods are incredibly tough. Our S2 FastGlass has a far higher strength-to-weight ratio than Carbon fibre (graphite) rods. Epic FastGlass rods can endure more acute and severe bends than the equivalent Carbon fibre, tip sections are stronger and far less susceptible to breakages due to high-sticking and problematic rod angles when pulling against load.

Each Epic Packlight 476 Fly Rod Features:

  • FastGlass fly rod blank with internally reenforced ferule system
  • Our world famous fiberglass rod tube.
  • Premium hand sewn rod sock.
  • Cleaning cloth.
  • Finest quality Portuguese cork grip.
  • Hand Crafted Cap and Ring Reel Seat By Joel Lemke, USA.
  • Unique black diamond stripper guide.
  • Our signature Epic Ghost Wraps in premium Japanese silk with fine one turn pinstripe midway over each guide foot.
