This Epic 480 was made on order to a Swedish customer. The appointments are very contemporary, with a very comfortable Snub Nose grip and a downlocking reel seat from Joel Lemke. The insert was turned by me, and is made from Wenge wood, which is a very hard and has a deep and beautiful color. All guides on this rod were made by Alps, and they have the best coating on the market. Extremely durable, which is rare when it comes to black hardware. Wrapped in grey Gossamer silk, with black tipping.
