My first fiberglass rod built in my new shop (2016), my first Epic build, my first silk thread gone clear, and my first acrylic reel seat insert. I opted a thicker (two turns) of black accent as opposed to the single which Swift Fly Fishing uses. I wanted to see them better! Since then this rod has given me valued experiences with Butterfly Peacock bass, Largemouth bass, Brown trout, rainbow trout, chinook salmon and carp. I've thought about selling it but maybe I should keep it for a while longer.
My second rod post - Thanks for looking!

Excellent! Everything works very well together, and it catches fish.
