Well, I have now finished off the "So Blue" EPIC blanks I had in stock. Thought it might be cool to post some of my favorite photos of these BLUE rods.

The colors and actions are truly unique. Quite fast and light.

Very cool! I like the blue with the green and black tipping wraps the best though they all look good. It would be interesting to try the 9wt for some saltwater striper fishing to see how it would handle it.

Nice to see members digging the 990 with seagreen wraps. They all look flash but that is the one winging its way to me shortly. It will be my principal rod at Christmas Island for Bonefish later this year. As always, Shane's work is first class.
